“Seeing, in the finest and broadest sense, means using
your senses, your intellect, and your emotions. It means
encountering your subject matter with your whole being.
It means looking beyond the labels of things and discovering
the remarkable world around you.”
Lunch time Friday at the Research Park
“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 feeling
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 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.”
