Albert Once Said

Einstein and Compassion

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘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 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

    • Glad you like it ♥ This has been one of my favorite Albert Einstein quotes for a long time. I ran across it again last night and created the new image with it, and then decided to share it here on the blog so I wouldn’t lose it 🙂
