Albert Advises

Words of wisdom to inspire us from Albert Schweitzer, the great physician and
philanthropist, who’s love of humanity shines through:

“One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only
strength which can overcome adversity.”

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success.
If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

“Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt,
kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to
evaporate.”

“Do something for somebody everyday for which you do not get paid.”

“The willow which bends to the tempest, often escapes better than the oak
which resists it…”

“Man can hardly even recognize the devils of his own creation.”

“Example is not the main thing in influencing others, it is the only thing.”

“Do something wonderful, people may imitate it.”

“Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.”

“The tragedy of lilfe is what dies inside a man while he lives.”

“We are all so much together, but we are all dying of lonelinesss.”

“Do not let Sunday be taken from you. If your soul has no Sunday,
it becomes an orphan.”

“Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always
something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf.”

“As soon as man does not take his existence for granted, but beholds
it as something unfathomably mysterious, thought begins.”

“Truth has no special time of its own, its hour is now — always.”

Bravo, Albert! Enlivened and emboldened, let’s all write on!
