"In the West, you have bigger homes, yet smaller families; you have endless conveniences -- yet you never seem to have any time. You can travel anywhere in the world, yet you don't bother to cross the road to meet your neighbors...I don't think people have become more selfish, but their lives have become easier and that has spoiled them.

They have less resilience, they expect more, they constantly compare themselves to others and they have too much choice -- which brings no real freedom."

Thanks to Anne the first one/in Dallas who left this quote in this Open Thread in April, 2006
