|"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
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." : Albert Einstein- (1879-1955) Physicist and
Professor, Nobel Prize 1921
"Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble
no one about his religion. Respect others in their views and demand that
they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things
in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or
even a stranger, if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but
grovel to none. When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for
your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your
food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the
fault lies in yourself.
Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs
the spirit of its vision. When your time comes to die, be not like those
whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes
they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in
a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."
