Albert Einstein quote...

 Albert Einstein
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 in 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 to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening the circles of our compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)


  1. Renounce your subjectivity says the founder of relativity!

    1. No, Thersites, that's not what he meant! LOL! He means understand your subjectivity, don't let it control you, and allow in the beauty of the universe, and be respectful of it.


    2. "Understand" in a negative sense, as a "delusion".."prison"..."restricting" that we must "free ourselves" from. 'F THAT!

    3. LOL.

      Both: I don't think Albert meant that either way!

    1. As a chemist/physicist I can take that quote at 'face value'.
