A human being is a part of
the whole that we call 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 illusion
of his consciousness. This
illusion is a prison for us,
restricting us to our personal
desires and to affection for
only the few people nearest
us. Our task must be to free
ourselves from this prison by
widening our circle of
compassion to embrace all
living beings and all of nature.

- Albert Einstein
