Wednesday Quotable

Though Albert Schweitzer espoused a view of the scriptures that had no rigid belief that the Bible is innerant, he also lived his life in service to others in need. Truth is truth, regardless of who speaks it.

Two great quotes from Schwetzer regarding his service as a doctor in Africa and regarding his belief in the reverence for life:

The time for speaking of older and younger brothers has passed.

Ethics, too, are nothing but reverence for life. This is what gives me the fundamental principle of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, promoting, and enhancing life, and that destroying, injuring, and limiting life are evil.
