Dr. Albert Schweitzer's Humanitarian Attitude
Apr 23, 2013
Posted by Kimmy Sophia Brown"...Very little of the great cruelty shown by men can really be attributed to cruel instinct. Most of it comes from thoughtlessness or inherited habit. The roots of cruelty, therefore, are not so much strong as widespread. But the time will come when inhumanity protected by custom and thoughtlessness will succumb before humanity championed by thought. Let us work that this time may come. A man is ethical only when life is sacred to him, that of animals as well as that of his fellow man, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help."
