Dalai Lama's Quotation "The Paradox of Our Time"

This 9"x 16" cloth scroll has a quotation called "The Paradox of Our Time," by HH the 14th Dalai Lama:

The Paradox of Our Age

    We have bigger houses but smaller families;

more conveniences, but less time;

we have more degrees, but less sense;

more knowledge, but less judgement;

more experts, but more problems;

more medicines, but less healthiness.

We have been all the way to the moon and back,

But have trouble crossing the street to meet

the new neighbor.

We built more computers to hold more

Information to produce more copies than ever,

but have less communication.

We have become long on quantity,

But short on quality.

These are times of fast foods

but slow digestion;

tall man but short character;

steep profits but shallow relationships.

It is a time when there is much in the window,

But nothing in the room.

… His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

The white cotton center piece with border knot motif is framed on all four sides by black cotton borders.  There are red tassels at on the bottom wooden dowel and a rainbow string for hanging the piece tied to the top dowel.
