The Light Within Us


Published by Philosophical Library/Open Road
The classic collection of timeless quotations from the Nobel Peace Prize–winning missionary, theologian, and international bestselling author.

Famous for founding the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, in what is now the West African country of Gabon, Albert Schweitzer was an accomplished theologian, physician, philosopher, music scholar, international bestselling author, and even a virtuoso organist. His many pursuits and achievements were inspired by his ethical philosophy of “Reverence for Life,” which he wrote about extensively in his many books and articles.

In The Light Within Us, Schweitzer’s longtime friend Richard Kik has compiled many of his most insightful and inspiring quotations. Drawn from his many writings, these quotations share Schweitzer’s thoughts on service, gratitude, God, missionary work, and much more. A wonderful introduction to the breadth of Schweitzer’s thought, this slim volume contains an abundance of wisdom.
