Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879.  Abby Martin provides the historical context and a heartfelt discussion regarding Albert Einstein's famous ‘Circle of Compassion' quote.  We need to balance personal stability with the plight of humanity by establishing a sense of global empathy.  Here's the “Circle of Compassion” quote from this incredibly intelligent and highly conscious man:

“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. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.” ― Albert Einstein
