Albert Einstein: “A human being is a part of the whole.”

20 October 2011

“A human being is a part of the whole…He experiences himself, his thoughts & 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 & 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 & the whole of nature in its beauty.”

-Albert Einstein
