Quote Thursday

A human being is part of the whole, 
called by us "universe," 
a part limited in time and space. 
He experiences himself, 
has thoughts and feelings, 
as something separate from the rest-- 
a kind of optical delusion of 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 circles of compassion to embrace 
all living creatures and the 
whole of nature in its beauty.
- Albert Einstein
