I absolutly LOVE the following quote. I think Albert really summed it all up with this one! However, please excuse his exclusive use of the pronoun ´he´. As smart and enlightended as HE was ....HE was still and MAN and thus doomed to error. So ladies just imagine that every ´he´, ´his´and ús´ACTUALLY includes you as we women have always had to do. Anyway, enjoy the quote!
"A human being is a part of the whole called by us the universe. 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 from our prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all humanity and the whole of nature and its beauty."
