Albert Schweitzer in seinen letzten Jahren.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_SchweitzerAlbe... Schweitzer, M.D., OM, (January 14, 1875 – September 4, 1965) was a German Alsatian theologian, musician, philosopher, and physician. He was born in Kaysersberg, Alsace-Lorraine, Germany (now in Haut-Rhin, Alsace, France). He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for founding the Lambaréné Hospital in Gabon, west central Africa.TheologyAs a young theologian he published his first major work, by which he gained a great reputation. In The Quest of the Historical Jesus (1906) Albert Schweitzer interpreted the life of Jesus in the light of Jesus' own eschatological convictions. Schweitzer demonstrated that the portrait of Jesus produced by those who sought to reimage Jesus through historical study was generally a portrait of the historian. This major work effectively ended the Quest for the Historical Jesus as a subdiscipline of New Testament studies for decades.Timeline1893 - Studied Philosophy and Theology at the Universities of Strassburg, Berlin and Paris 1900 - Pastor of the Church of St. Nicolas in Strassburg 1901 - Principal of the Theological Seminary in Strassburg 1905-1913 Studied medicine and surgery 1912 - Married Helene Bresslau 1913 - Physician in Lambaréné, Africa 1915 - Developed his ethic Reverence for life 1917 - Interned in France 1918 - Medical assistant and assistant-pastor in Strassburg 1919 - First major speech about Reverence for life at the University of Uppsala, Sweden 1919 - Birth of daughter, Rhena 1924 - Return to Lambaréné as physician; frequent visits to Europe for speaking engagements 1939-1948 Lambaréné 1949 - Visit to the United States 1948-1965 - Lambaréné and Europe. 1953 - Nobel Peace Prize for the year 1952 1957 - 1958 - Four speeches against nuclear armament and tests

Not one of us knows what effect his life produces, and what he gives to others; that is hidden from us and must remain so, though we are often allowed to see some little fraction of it, so that we may not lose courage.Albert Schweitzer (14 January 1875 - 4 September 1965) German philosopher, philanthropist, physician, theologian, missionary, and musicologist; recipient of the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize.
史懷哲(Albert Schweitzer，西元1875年1月14日 - 1965年9月4日），德國醫學家。
As we acquire more knowledge, things do not become more comprehensible, but more mysterious.
Do something for somebody every day for which you do not get paid.
Do something wonderful, people may imitate it.
Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life.
Example is leadership.
Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It's the only thing.
I can do no other than be reverent before everything that is called life. I can do no other than to have compassion for all that is called life. That is the beginning and the foundation of all ethics.
