Quote of the Day (Albert Schweitzer, on ‘The Spirit Generated by Truth’)

“One belief of my childhood I have preserved with the certainty that I can never lose it: belief in truth. I am confident that the spirit generated by truth is stronger than the force of circumstances. In my view no other destiny awaits mankind than that which, through its mental and spiritual disposition, it prepares for itself. Therefore I do not believe that it will have to tread the road to ruin right to the end.” — Alsatian physician, theologian, humanitarian—and Nobel Peace Prize laureate—Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965), Out of My Life and Thought: An Autobiography, translated by Antje Bultmann Lemke (1931)
