Albert Einstein

“A human being is part of the whole called by us ‘the universe,’ a part limited in time and space.  He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.  This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection of a few persons nearest to us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~ Albert Einstein, via Solitude

Quotes That Have Changed My Life – Volume 1

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

I have a passion for quotes and firmly believe in their ability to change a person’s life when read, reflected upon, and applied seriously.

The very essence of a quote is insight and wisdom derived from other people’s life experiences and packaged through their own lens in the most direct and to-the-point method possible.

These ideas get you thinking, make you nod your head, and help you to express your own opinions and feelings (I know they have certainly helped me express mine) and may help you live your life in a more fulfilling way.

Below, you will find my first installment of 2 quotes that have changed my life.

If any of the quotes below resonate with you, be sure to spend some time reflecting on them yourself and thinking about how you can apply their insight to your life – a year from now, you’ll be glad you did! Continue reading
