It’s been over six years since we lost George Carlin, but his wise words still linger around the world.
“We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We’ve conquered the atom but not our prejudice.
These are the days of two income Families, but more divorce….fancier houses but broken homes.”
These words of George Carlin strongly connect to me.
He speaks as if he has read my thoughts and re-interpreted them.
Such insightful thinking that we’ve all had pass through our minds, yet were unable to capture in writing.
Yeah, George was one wise man…..even his comedic rant on bicyclists doesn’t stop me from loving what the guy had to say about the world.
As our world progresses…..ages, educates, and matures…..we must reflect on its outcomes. As we progress, we must also reflect on the person we have become.
So easy to get caught up….swept away…..and lost. So easy to forget what matters most.
Daily actions become routine. Importance gets pushed aside to the unknown. Real priorities surface in the face of danger and fear.
Stay in tune with the inner self. Re-learn to feel without touch. Re-learn to say words in silence. Live.
