Delusion Quotes

Objectivity is a subject's delusion that observing can be done without him

Heinz von Foerster

All works are being done by the energy and power of nature, but due to delusion of ego people assume themselves to be the doer.

Bhagavad Gita

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 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. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. 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

Kim Cattrall

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

This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest us.
