My grandmother is not fond of the internet. So, whenever we're in a restaurant waiting for the food to be served, I usually look around and see my family all on their phones-except for my grandmother who's not talking to anyone. That image is enough for me to drop my phone so that there are two people at the table really talking to each other.
“I suspect that the mind, like the feet, works at about three miles an hour. If this is so, then modern life is moving faster than the speed of thought, or thoughtfulness.”
