A Quote by Albert Einstein on experience, independence, mathematics, reality, and thought

A Quote by Albert Einstein on circle, compassion, consciousness, nature, space, time, and universe

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 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.  Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.

The difference between what the most and the least learned people know is inexpressibly trivial in relation to that which is unknown.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on civilization, contempt, mistakes, and music

He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once.
