When Dr Albert Schweitzer was asked to sum up all he had learned in half a century of teaching and writing, this was his answer:
1. If you have something difficult to do, don’t expect people to roll stones out of your way.
2. It is not necessary to go off on a tour of great Cathedrals in order to find God. Look within you. And you have to sit still to do it.
3. Reverence for life is where religion and philosophy can meet and where society must try to go.
4. The misery I have seen gives me strength, and faith in my fellow man supports my confidence in the future.
