Description:

Quote by Albert Schweitzer printed in red on a singe sheet, framed in plexiglass. 30x23 cm (12x9").

Signed by Albert Schweitzer beneath the quote, with a few words in French following his signature. Albert Schweitzer was an Alsatian theologian, organist, writer, humanitarian, philosopher, and physician. He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize for his philosophy of "Reverence for Life," becoming the 8th Frenchman to be awarded that Prize.

The quote reads: "Only at quite rare moments have I felt really glad to be alive. I could not but feel with a sympathy full of regret all the pain that I saw around me, not only that of men but that of the whole creation. From this community of suffering I have never tried to withdraw myself. It seemed to me a matter of course that we should all take our share of the burden of pain which lies upon the world."
