Quote by Albert Einstein


A human being is part of the whole, 
called by us “Universe,” 
a part limited in time and space.

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings 
as something separated from the rest
- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

This delusion is a kind of prison for us, 
restricting us to our personal desires and 
to affection for a few persons nearest to us.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison 
by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures 
and the whole of nature in its beauty.

~ Albert Einstein, 1950
