"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 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 us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
Albert Einstein quotes

What a remarkably optomistic quote, obviously by a wise and inspiring guru who viewed differnet cultures of the world from afar, mingling between the United States and India, thinking Indian but living in the U.S. The assumption that ignorance will vanish when education and reason becomes priority. We not only establish literacy from learned men and books of wisdon but we learn from experience and common sense. What would Vivekananda say to us in 2005 upon participating in current events, our world domination, our cultural values and our defintion of moral justice? Is ignorance vanishing and the literacy shining on all of us like the brightness of the sun? Or, are we just shallow and cannot rise above our delusion of superstition and fear? You would think that our minds and our values would advance as fast as our technology but the human race has gone backwards. If our priorities continue to focus on trivial manners and social issues and our computers and technical advancements multiply leaps and bounds, we will find ouorselves slaves to technology and prisoners of our little and incapable minds that will become dependent on technology for our mere existnce.........macvegan original

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.".....macvegan

"As I have said before, the ever more sophisticated weapons piling up in the arsenals of the wealthiest and the mightiest can kill the illiterate, the ill, the poor and the hungry, but they cannot kill ignorance, illness, poverty or hunger"
