George Carlin was a grouchy, foul mouthed comedian during the the 1970s and 80s. Yet, his comedy routines made me laugh out loud because he clearly saw the ironies and contradictions that characterize our society. Amazingly, despite his often gross rants, when it came to writing he could be eloquent. I came across some of his words recently and thought they were worth sharing. He said, "We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. Bigger houses and smaller families, more convenience, but less time. More degrees but less sense, more knowledge but less judgement, more experts yet more problems, more medicine but less wellness. We spend more, but have less. We buy more but enjoy less."

He added, "We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch too much TV and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom and hate too often. We have learned how to make a living but not a life. We've added years to life but not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things but not better things. We've cleaned the air but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom but not our prejudice. We build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships."

So perhaps we need to slow down a bit and savor a bit of life.As Carlin said, "Remember to give a warm hug to to one next to you because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent. Remember to spend some time with our loved ones because they are not going to be around forever. Remember to say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe because that little person will grow up and leave your side."

Make a difference in life by not just taking, but giving, too.

He was a real legend. But I don't like his style and his humor. And that's fine.
