    A message from George Carlin at his wife’s funeral A Must Read
    A wonderful Message by George Carlin

    The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness

    We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much , and pray too seldom.

    We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

    We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

    We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

    These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…

    Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

    Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

    Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

    Remember, to say, “I love you” to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

    Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

    Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

    AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:

    Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

    It’s a pity George carlin is dead, i don’t think i have seen anyone coming close to replace him.
    I would have loved to have met him and just shared a moment, no one who was anyone ever listened to the words he spoke, this i think made him angry man, and sometimes very bitter….

    It doesn’t sound like George Carlin, because it’s a sappy load of shit, which is how he described it, because he didn’t write it. http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/paradox.asp

    indeed. he is the only person I can think of that holds a candle to Carlin and even Hicks.

    Nice spot Konabunny

    OP/mods can you get a title change for this thread?

    The true author of the piece isn’t George Carlin, Jeff Dickson, the Dalai Lama, nor is he anonymous. Credit belongs with Dr. Bob Moorehead, former pastor of Seattle’s Overlake Christian Church. (He retired in 1998 after 29 years in that post). The essay appeared under the title “The Paradox of Our Age” in Words Aptly Spoken, Dr. Moorehead’s 1995 collection of prayers, homilies, and monologues used in his sermons and radio broadcasts:

    To see how good Carlin was, google his version of the aristocrats…

    Lost me at “pray too seldom”.

    Ah, appropriate since it was written by a bloody pastor!

    I’ve no idea who George Carlin is, but he was spot on calling that a sappy load of shit, read like the sort of thing from a “thoughtful” bank ad

    Lost me at “pray too little”.

    yeah, that got me thinking it wasn’t Carlin who originally wrote it, still nice.

    To me I seems pretty wet. If you like that stuff then why not base your life on “Sunscreen’ by Baz Lurhmann?

    It reads like exactly the sort of thing that gets people blocked on Facebook :mrgreen:

    fatyowls. Those of us who liked George Carlin give a shit. He’d hate that.

    Look at his landmark “seven dirty words” routine to see how he was the godfather of alternative comedy

    Love George Carlin. He is up there with Richard Pryor and Bill Hicks as one of my all time favorite comedians.

    “When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time!

    But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money!”

    So funny.

    Louis CK’s tribute to George Carlin is really good – not just the realness of it but the idea of not getting trapped into a routine and having the courage and belief to keep trying something new.
