GEORGE CARLIN - Paradoxes and Quotes (Part 2)

George Carlin - son of Mary and Patrick - was of Irish descend. He was raised in Manhattan by his mother with whom hi had a difficult relationship. At the age of 15 he left high school and after a while he joined the United States Air Force where was trained as a radar technician. Meanwhile, he began working as a disc jockey. In 1957, Carlin was discharged, being labeled by his superiors as an "unproductive airman". (To be continued)

The paradox of our time is that we have taller buildings, but shorter  times, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We have bigger houses, but smaller families, more knowledge but less judgement.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, drive too fast, get too angry,
stay up too late, get too tired, watch TV too much, but. . . forget to:

  • give time to love
  • give time to speak
  • give time to share your precious thoughts 
  • cherish the moment
  • say a kind word to one who looks up to you
  • spend time with the loved ones. They aren’t going to be around forever.
Don’t forget!
