«We cannot abdicate our conscience to an organization, not to a government. 'Am I my brother's keeper?' Most certainly I am! I cannot escape my responsability by saying the State will do all that is necessary. It's a tragedy that nowadays so many think and feel otherwise.»

Dr. Albert Schweitzer Second President of the Honorary Committee of the AIDLR
