Tuesday Thought: Compassion

"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
