Artist's Description

The following is written by Helen Steiner Rice

The World Would Be A Nicer Place
If We Traveled At A Slower Pace

Amid stresses and strains,
much too many to mention,
And pressure-packed days
filled with turmoil and tension,
We seldom take time
to be friendly and kind,
For we’re harassed and hurried
and always hehind…
And while we’ve more gadgets
and buttons to press
Making leisure time greater
and laboring less
And our standards of living
they claim have improved
And repressed inhibitions
have been freed and removed,
It seems all this progress
and growth are for naught,
For daily we see
a world more distraught…
So what does it matter
if man reaches his goal
And gains in the whole world
but loses his soul?
For what have we won if
in gaining this end
We’ve been much too busy
to be kind to a friend?
And what is there left
to make the heart sing
When life is a cold
and mechanical thing?
And are we but puppets
of controlled automation
Instead of joint heirs
to God’s gift of creation?
