A letter from Albert Einstein to Robert Marcus, February 12, 1950

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 consciousness.  The striving to free oneself from this delusion is the one issue of true religion.  Not to nourish the delusion but to try to overcome it is the way to reach the attainable measure of peace of mind.
