No hope

If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.

~ Albert Einstein

Dangerous Place

The world is a dangerous place to live; Not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.

~ Albert Einstein

Part of a whole

albert_einstein_vienna

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

Do you have a question?

albert_einstein_viennaThe important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.

~ Albert Einstein
