Albert Schweitzer


"Our civilization lacks human feeling. We are humans who are insufficiently humane! We must realize that and seek to find a new spirit. We have lost sight of this ideal because we are solely occupied with thoughts of men instead of remembering that our goodness and compassion should extend to all creatures. Religion and philosophy have not insisted as much as they should on the fact that our kindness should include all living creatures."

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965), missionary, physician, 1952 Nobel Peace Prize
