Reverence for Life: The Words of Albert Schweitzer
Edited by Harold E. Robles Foreword by Roger Gamble
Take part in creating a global compassion consciousness
Gathered together for the first time in one place, Nobel Peace Prize-winner Albert Schweitzer’s words on ecology, human and animal rights, philosophy, war and peace, music and the arts, and forming a global community.
“I cannot but have Reverence for all that is called life. I cannot avoid compassion for everything that is called life. That is the beginning and foundation of morality.”
~ Albert Schweitzer
Spanning many decades and a host of topics, this rich collection of the words of Albert Schweitzer offers a glimpse into the life and thought of an eminent humanitarian.
“Reverence for Life” was Schweitzer’s unifying term for a concept of ethics. He believed that such an ethic would reconcile the drives of altruism and egoism by requiring a respect for the lives of all other beings and by demanding the highest development of an individual’s resources. The thread of this inspirational belief appears throughout his deeply insightful writings. Excerpts from previously unpublished letters to John F. Kennedy, Norman Cousins, Bertrand Russell, and others show how truly committed Schweitzer was to creating a global consciousness and cultivating a dignity toward all people. A foreword by former U.S. Ambassador, Roger Gamble, an introduction by the editor, Harold E. Robles, and a brief biographical sketch of Schweitzer’s life round out this stunning collection of quotations.
“The words of Dr. Schweitzer are timeless. They are not only relevant today, but they will continue to serve as an inspiration to the future. Many thanks to Harold Robles for compiling and sharing with us this collection of ‘Le Grand Docteur’s’ thoughts.” ~ PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER
“If you are a thinker, if you care about the future of this planet, you need to buy this little gem of a book.” ~ JANE GOODALL
