Paradoxes of our time

Today we have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, but less time
ما امروزه خانه های بزرگتر اما خانواده های کوچکتر داریم؛ راحتی بیشتر اما زمان کمتر
We have more degrees, but less common sense; more knowledge, but less judgment
مدارک تحصیلی بالاتر اما درک عمومی پایین تر ؛ آگاهی بیشتر اما قدرت تشخیص کمتر داریم
We have more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness
متخصصان بیشتر اما مشکلات نیز بیشتر؛ داروهای بیشتر اما سلامتی کمتر
We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get to angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too often, and pray too seldom
بدون ملاحظه ایام را می گذرانیم، خیلی کم می خندیم، خیلی تند رانندگی می کنیم، خیلی زود عصبانی می شویم، تا دیروقت بیدار می مانیم، خیلی خسته از خواب برمی خیزیم، خیلی کم مطالعه می کنیم، اغلب اوقات تلویزیون نگاه می کنیم و خیلی بندرت دعا می کنیم
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too little and lie too often
چندین برابر مایملک داریم اما ارزشهایمان کمتر شده است. خیلی زیاد صحبت می کنیم، به اندازه کافی دوست نمی داریم و خیلی زیاد دروغ می گوییم
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life; we've added years to life, not life to years
زندگی ساختن را یاد گرفته ایم اما نه زندگی کردن را ؛ تنها به زندگی سالهای عمر را افزوده ایم و نه زندگی را به سالهای عمرمان
We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints
ما ساختمانهای بلندتر داریم اما طبع کوتاه تر، بزرگراه های پهن تر اما دیدگاه های باریکتر
We spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy it less
بیشتر خرج می کنیم اما کمتر داریم، بیشتر می خریم اما کمتر لذت می بریم
We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor
ما تا ماه رفته و برگشته ایم اما قادر نیستیم برای ملاقات همسایه جدیدمان از یک سوی خیابان به آن سو برویم
We've conquered outer space, but not inner space. We've split the atom, but not our prejudice
فضا بیرون را فتح کرده ایم اما نه فضا درون را، ما اتم را شکافته ایم اما نه تعصب خود را
we write more, but learn less; plan more, but accomplish less
بیشتر می نویسیم اما کمتر یاد می گیریم، بیشتر برنامه می ریزیم اما کمتر به انجام می رسانیم
We've learned to rush, but not to wait; we have higher incomes, but lower morals
عجله کردن را آموخته ایم و نه صبر کردن، درآمدهای بالاتری داریم اما اصول اخلاقی پایین تر
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies, but have less communication. We are long on quantity, but short on quality
کامپیوترهای بیشتری می سازیم تا اطلاعات بیشتری نگهداری کنیم، تا رونوشت های بیشتری تولید کنیم، اما ارتباطات کمتری داریم. ما کمیت بیشتر اما کیفیت کمتری داریم
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men and short character; steep profits and shallow relationships
اکنون زمان غذاهای آماده اما دیر هضم است، مردان بلند قامت اما شخصیت های پست، سودهای کلان اما روابط سطحی
More leisure and less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition; two incomes, but more divorce; fancier houses, but broken homes
فرصت بیشتر اما تفریح کمتر، تنوع غذای بیشتر اما تغذیه ناسالم تر؛ درآمد بیشتر اما طلاق بیشتر؛ منازل رویایی اما خانواده های از هم پاشیده
That's why I propose, that as of today, you do not keep anything for a special occasion, because every day that you live is a special occasion
بدین دلیل است که پیشنهاد می کنم از امروز شما هیچ چیز را برای موقعیتهای خاص نگذارید، زیرا هر روز زندگی یک موقعیت خاص است
Search for knowledge, read more, sit on your front porch and admire the view without paying attention to your needs
در جستجو دانش باشید، بیشتر بخوانید، در ایوان بنشینید و منظره را تحسین کنید بدون آنکه توجهی به نیازهایتان داشته باشید
Spend more time with your family and friends, eat your favorite foods, and visit the places you love
زمان بیشتری را با خانواده و دوستانتان بگذرانید، غذای مورد علاقه تان را بخورید و جاهایی را که دوست دارید ببینید
Life is a chain of moment of enjoyment, not only about survival
زندگی فقط حفظ بقاء نیست، بلکه زنجیره ای ازلحظه های لذتبخش است
Use your crystal goblets. Do not save your best perfume, and use it every time you feel you want it
از جام کریستال خود استفاده کنید، بهترین عطرتان را برای روز مبادا نگه ندارید و هر لحظه که دوست دارید از آن استفاده کنید
Remove from your vocabulary phrases like "one of these days" and "someday". Let's write that letter we thought of writing "one of these days "
عباراتی مانند "یکی از این روزها" و "روزی" را از فرهنگ لغت خود خارج کنید. بیایید نامه ای را که قصد داشتیم "یکی از این روزها" بنویسیم همین امروز بنویسیم
Let's tell our families and friends how much we love them. Do not delay anything that adds laughter and joy to your life
بیایید به خانواده و دوستانمان بگوییم که چقدر آنها را دوست داریم. هیچ چیزی را که می تواند به خنده و شادی شما بیفزاید به تاُخیر نیندازید
Every day, every hour, and every minute is special. And you don't know if it will be your last
هر روز، هر ساعت و هر دقیقه خاص است و شما نمیدانید که شاید آن می تواند آخرین لحظه باشد

Bridge of love

Once upon a time two brothers who lived on adjoining farms fell into conflict.It was the first serious rift in 40 years of farming side by side, sharing machinery, and trading labor and goods as needed without a hitch.Then the long collaboration fell apart. It began with a small misunderstanding and it grew into a major difference, and finally it exploded into an exchange of bitter words followed by weeks of silence.One morning there was a knock on John’s door. He opened it to find a man with a carpenter’s toolbox. “I’m looking for a few days work” he said.”Perhaps you would have a few small jobs here and there I could help with? Could I help you?“Yes,” said the older brother. “I do have a job for you. Look across the creek at that farm. That’s my neighbor, in fact, it’s my younger brother.Last week there was a meadow between us and he took his bulldozer to the river levee and now there is a creek between us.Well, he may have done this to spite me, but I’ll go him one better. See that pile of lumber by the barn?I want you to build me a fence - - an 8-foot fence — so I won’t need to see his place or his face anymore.”The carpenter said, “I think I understand the situation. Show me the nails and the post hole digger and I’ll be able to do a job that pleases you.”The older brother had to go to town, so he helped the carpenter get the materials ready and then he was off for the day. The carpenter worked hard all that day measuring, sawing, nailing, and hammering.About sunset when the farmer returned, the carpenter had just finished his job. The farmer’s eyes opened wide, his jaw dropped. There was no fence there at all......

Love’s story

Love’s story Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all repaired their boats and left.Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment. When the island was almost sinking, Love decided to ask for help. Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, “Richness, can you take me with you?” Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you.”Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel, “Vanity, please help me!” “I can’t help you Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat.” Vanity answered.Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, “Sadness, let me go with you.” “Oh….Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!”Happiness passed by Love too, but he was so happy that ........

Thinking positive

It is LOGICAL. Think about the answer sincerely.

Once there was loving couple traveling in a bus in a mountainous area.
They decided to get down at some place.

After the couple got down at some place the bus moved on.

As the bus moved on, a huge rock fell on the bus from the mountain
and crushed the bus to crumbs. Everybody on board was killed.

The couple upon seeing that, said, "We wish we were on that bus"

Why do u think they said that?


Scroll down for answer...

























If they had remained on the bus instead of deciding to get down,
the resulting time delay could have been avoided
and the rock would have fallen after the bus had passed ..!!!

Think positive in life always and look for opportunities
when u can help others.

Many times in life, the opposite of Success is not Failure,
its Quitting.
