"It could and should soon come to pass that all states pledge themselves collectively to attack an aggressor. That would make war impossible, and would force even the most brutal and unreasonable Power to appeal to a court of arbitration, or else keep quiet."

'Innovations of the past as guidelines for the future.
For most people the name Nobel is associated with the Nobel Prize. But for us in the family the name has greater associations that take us to Azerbaijan, Russia and many other countries. When the donator of the Nobel Prize, Alfred Nobel, died, a fair share of his fortune was not from his dynamite companies; It came from one of the world's largest oil companies at that time, The Nobel Brothers Petroleum Production Company.'
- Thomas Tydén, Chairman of the Nobel Family Society.
