So I'll start and we'll see how this goes.

Brandt A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space.

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
