I’ve been reading some quotes of Albert Schweitzer, a Christian humanitarian whose passion it was to serve others. He founded the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in west central Africa. Let me share a few with you.
“Do something for somebody everyday for which you do not get paid.”
“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. ”
“There are two kinds of people. There are the helpers, and the non-helpers. I thank God he has allowed me to become a helper, and in helping, I found everything.”
“Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier.”
