About Albert Schweitzer
Albert Schweitzer, the German medical missionary, won the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize for his humanitarian work at a hospital in French Equatorial Africa, where he treated and operated on thousands of people, including hundreds of people afflicted with leprosy. He was also an organist, famous for his interpretation of J.S. Bach’s music. Late in life, he worked with Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell against nuclear proliferation. He was born in 1875 in Kaysersberg and died in 1965.

Today’s Quote
“Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. The third is to be kind.”
– Henry James
About Henry James
American expatriate author Henry James is known for such psychologically astute, stylistically dense fiction as The Portrait of a Lady and The Turn of the Screw. He was born in 1843 in New York City, son of Henry James Sr., a noted intellectual, and brother to philosopher William James. After traveling through Europe as a young man, he settled in England. His writing often dealt with innocent, brash Americans in conflict with sophisticated Europeans. He died in 1916.
