Albert Schweitzer quotes

Albert Schweitzer
A man does not have to be an angel in order to be a saint.

Albert Schweitzer
Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment, and learn again to exercise his will - his personal responsibility.

Albert Schweitzer
You must not expect anything from others. It's you, of yourself, of whom you must ask a lot. Only from oneself has one the right to ask everything and anything. This way it's up to you -your own choices - what you get from others remains a present, a gift.

Albert Schweitzer
The fundamental rights of humanity are, first: the right of habitation second, the right to move freely third, the right to the soil and subsoil, and to the use of it fourth, the right of freedom of labor and of exchange fifth, the right to justice sixth, the right to live within a natural national organization and seventh, the right to education.

Albert Schweitzer
Man can hardly even recognize the devils of his own creation.

Albert Schweitzer
There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.

Albert Schweitzer
Man is a clever animal who behaves like an imbecile.

Albert Schweitzer
Reverence for Life affords me my fundamental principle of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, assisting, and enhancing life and that to destroy, harm, or to hinder life is evil. Affirmation of the world -that is affirmation of the will to live, which appears in phenomenal forms all around me - is only possible for me in that I give myself out for other life.
