Any religion or philosophy which is not based on a respect for life is not a true religion or philosophy.
Albert Schweitzer (1875 - 1965)

One truth stands firm. All that happens in world history rests on something spiritual. If the spiritual is strong, it creates world history. If it is weak, it suffers world history.
Love . . . is a living reality.
You ask me for a motto. Here it is: SERVICE.
Today . . . we know that all living beings who strive to maintain life and who long to be spared pain - all living beings on earth - are our neighbors.
You don't live in a world all alone. Your brothers are here too.

The tragedy of life is what dies inside a man while he lives.
I have always held firmly to the thought that each one of us can do a little to bring some portion of misery to an end.
Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment, and learn again to exercise his will - his personal responsibility.
Reverence for life is the highest court of appeal.
