"My religion consists of a humble admiration
of the illimitable superior spirit
who reveals himself in the slight details
we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind."
Albert Einstein
(1879-1955) Physicist and Professor, Nobel Prize 1921

    Sorry, I meant the Dalai Lama: "This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness". Dalai Lama
