This inspired speech from Charlie Chaplin was delivered sometime during WWII. Over fifty years later, it's still as poignant and relevant as ever.
"We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in."
"Machinery that gives abundance leaves us in want."
"We think too much but feel too little."
"More than machinery, we need humanity."
"More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness."
One commenter responded, "If only people would listen and do, instead of listen and forget." That's really the trick, isn't it?
