" A human being is part of a whole: (called by us the Universe) partly limited in time and space.
We experience ourself, our thoughts our feelings, as something separated from the rest.
Kind of an optical delusion of consciousness; a kind of prison restricting our personal desires.
This limits our affections for only a few persons nearest and dearest to us! Our task must be:
To free ouselves from this limiting of prison by widening of circles of compassion;
To embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature... in its awe and beauty! "
~ Albert Einstein ~
"We must always remember that America is a great nation...

" It is easy in the world, to live after the world's opinion;

Keeps with perfect sweetness, the Independence of Solitude. "

" The doctrines and miricals of out Savior have required nearly two thousand years
to convert but a small portion of the human race, and even among Christian nations,
what gross errors still exist! While we see the course of the final abolition
of human slavery is still onward, and give it the aid of our prayers,
let us leave the progress as well as the results in the hands of Him,
who chooses to work by slow influences, and with Him a thousand years
...are but as a single day."
