Albert Einstein
Man and Universe
printer friendly version
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.
