YellowFlowers

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part self, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of opticaldelusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison forus, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for afew 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.”― Albert Einstein
