Albert Einstein is widely known as having been a highly intelligent man. I believe he was always a very wise man. Below are some of his thoughts on a variety of subjects and I believe that much wisdom is contained in them. It is from a list recently sent to me by a buddy.
A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _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 to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
