Message by George Carlin

Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - gross
and mouthy comedian of the 70's and 80's -
could write something so very eloquent...
and so very appropriate post 9-11.

A wonderful Message by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that
we have taller buildings but shorter tempers,
wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We
spend more, but have less, we buy more, but
enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller
families, more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense, more
knowledge, but less judgment, more experts,
yet more problems, more medicine, but less

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 TV too much,
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've learned how to make a living, but not
a life. We've added years to life 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 up the air, but polluted the
soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our
prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We
plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned
to rush, but not to wait. 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. These are
the days of two incomes but more divorce,
fancier houses, but broken homes. These are
days of quick trips, disposable diapers,
throwaway morality, one night stands, over
weight bodies, and pills that do everything
from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time
when there is much in the showroom window
and nothing in the stockroom. A time when
technology can bring this letter to you,
and a time when you can choose either to
share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember, spend some time with your loved
ones, because they are not going to be
around forever. Remember, say a kind word
to someone who looks up to you in awe,
because that little person soon will grow
up and leave your side. Remember, to give
a warm hug to the 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 say, "I love you" to your
partner and your loved ones, but most of
all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will
mend hurt when it comes from deep inside
of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish
the moment for someday that person will
not be there again. Give time to love,
give time to speak, and give time to share
the precious thoughts in your mind. Life
is not measured by the number of breaths
we take, but by the moments that take our
breath away.


1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This
includes age, weight, and height. Let the
doctor worry about them. That is why you pay

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches
pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the
computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.
Never let the brain idle. " An idle mind
is the devil's workshop," And the devil's
name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh
until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and
move on. The only person who is with us
our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE
while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love,
whether it's family, pets, keepsakes,
music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your
home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good,
preserve it. If it is unstable, improve
it. If it is beyond what you can improve,
get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip
to the mall, to the next county, to a
foreign country, but NOT to where the
guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you
love them, at every opportunity.


Life is not measured by the number of
breaths we take, but by the moments that
take our breath away.

If you don't send this to at least 8
people....who cares?
