Quote for the Week... or a Lifetime

"Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."

..... Albert Einstein (now there's a smart man!)


  1. Albert was very wise! Did you know Marilyn Monroe had a mad crush on Albert Einstein?! They would have made a cute couple?! Thanks for sharing the quote. In this crazy iPod world, we need to embrace this philosophy!

  2. Funny... it doesn't seem all that brilliant to me... but then that's because its my own philosophy... it seems to me such an obvious thing... and yet... many folks are clueless what 'the whole of nature' signifies... as if... it was something outside of themselves... strange, hey ?

    btw- Ever see a cute movie called IQ - a story relating to Einstein & his niece ?

    Thanks for sharing !

  3. Yes, Nicole... it's also my philosophy and it impacts my daily life, but there are soooo many people, and I taught many students who were this way, who live in the walls of a city and never really experience nature at all. It's sad... it's like a different universe to them.

    I have seen IQ and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    And no, Jeanette, I did not know that Marilyn Monroe had a crush on him... that's pretty funny. She would've been better off with him, I think!

  4. Oh, if this idea was only embraced!
    Have a great today Rebecca!
