a human being is a part of the whole, called by us "universe", a part limited in time & space.
he experiences himself, his thoughts & feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
the striving to free oneself from this delusion is the one issue of true religion.
not to nourish the delusion but to try to overcome it is the way to reach the attainable measure of peace of mind.
- albert einstein (1879-1955)
