Reviews of and Quotes From Dr. Schweitzer's Books

Here are my reviews of some of Albert Schweitzer's books. All are English translations from French or German. Some of them are out of print, but generally can be found in a good research library or by a book search from a good used-book dealer. Also included here are reviews of compilations of his writings. See The Albert Schweitzer Page for reviews of books about Dr. Schweitzer and related information.

For All That Lives

Written By:  Ann Atwood and Erica Anderson
Edition:  Charles Scribner's Sons, 1975
Hardcover, 28 pages

ISBN 0684140012


Table of Contents

This very slim volume presents colorful pictures interspersed with very short quotes from Albert Schweitzer. Many of the photos are of animals and other natural scenes, while some show Schweitzer himself. The quotations are some of Schweitzer's finest short sayings about Reverence for Life.

Quotes from For All That Lives

[Quoting Schweitzer] "Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf."

[Quoting Schweitzer] "Love is the Eternal Thing which man can already on earth possess as it really is."
