A human being is a part of the whole 
called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. 
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling 
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."
~Albert Einstein
