QUOTE-  WEEK of Nov. 12- 16

          At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
                                                                   by Albert Schweitzer

Who is Albert Schweitzer?    

     Albert Schweitzer was born in Alsace, Germany.  He was an author, organist, pastor, surgeon, humanitarian, Nobel Peace Prize winner, principal of a theological seminary, and a university professor with a doctorate in philosophy who devoted most of his life to serving the people of Africa.

"Reverence for Life," as the elementary and universal principle of ethics was his primary focus throughout his life.  From the "will to live" evidenced in all living beings, Schweitzer demonstrated this ethical response for humans by serving others and promoting an awareness about the dangers in environmental hazards.
