Alfred Nobel

Chemist, Inventor, Awesome Administrator, Social Reformer.

"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."

Humor

1. I am not aware that I have deserved any notoriety, and I have no taste for its buzz.

2. For my part, I wish all guns with their belongings and everything could be sent to hell, which is the proper place for their exhibition and use.

3. Second to agriculture, humbug is the biggest industry of our age.

4. The truthful man is usually a liar.

Quotations

1. To his brother's wife, "What a contrast between us. You live a warm and glowing life, surrounded by loved ones whom you care for and who care for you. You are anchored in contentment. I drift about without rudder or compass, a wreck on the sea of life. I have no memories to cheer me, no pleasant illusions of the future to comfort me, or about me to satisfy my vanity. I have no family to furnish the only kind of survival that concerns us, no friends for the wholesome development of my affections, or enemies for my malice."

2. One can state, without exaggeration, that the observation of and the search for similarities and differences are the basis of all human knowledge.

3. I would not leave anything to a man of action as he would be tempted to give up work; on the other hand, I would like to help dreamers as they find it difficult to get on in life.

4. If I have a thousand ideas and only one turns out to be good, I am satisfied.

5. Hope is nature's veil for hiding truth's nakedness.

6. Self-respect without the respect of others is like a jewel which will not stand the daylight.

7. Worry is the stomach's worst poison.

8. Contentment is the only real wealth.

9. We build upon the sand, and the older we become, the more unstable this foundation becomes.

10. Justice is to be found only in the imagination.

11. It is not sufficient to be worthy of respect in order to be respected.

12. The best excuse for the fallen ones is that Madame Justice herself is one of them.

13. Lying is the greatest of all sins.

14. A heart can no more be forced to love than a stomach can be forced to digest food by persuasion.

15. A recluse without books and ink is already in life a dead man.
