Makes You Think

Sebastian Faulks: Where My Heart Used To Beat
Sebastian Faulks: Where My Heart Used To Beat

 

My current read.  I am not captivated by it as much as previous works by Faulks (eg A Possible Life; Birdsong).  But I love it for giving me the following quote by Albert Einstein:

‘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.’

  1. Thank you for sharing this beautiful quote. When I was studying for my degree in science, it seemed to me that scientists had become remarkably narrow-minded. So Einstein’s wisdom has always been the more inspiring to me.
