Reverence for Life

Albert Schweitzer 2.jpg

Yesterday I made a comment about reverence. It is such an important aspect of life that I thought that you might like another today:

“Reverence for life affords me my fundamental principle of morality, namely that good consists in maintaining, assisting, and enhancing life, and that to destroy, to harm, or to hinder life is evil.”      

–Albert Schweitzer (Alsatian-born Theologian, Philosopher, Mission Doctor and, in 1952, Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, 1875-1965)

“Practice reverence for life. The sacred is in, with, and under all things of the world. Respond with appropriate respect and awe.”

–Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat (American Writers and Teachers: Frederic is a United Church of Christ Clergyman, and Mary Ann is an Interfaith Minister, ordained by the One Spirit Interfaith Seminary)
