Einstein’s Quote on Human Compassion

Image (1) Einstein-formal_portrait-35.jpg for post 185743

A human being is part of the whole, called by us “universe,” 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 prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons close to us.

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

Nobody is able to achieve this completely but striving for such achievement is in itself a part of liberation and foundation for inner security.
