About this Quote

This quote by Albert Schweitzer emphasizes the significance of empathy in principles. He recommends that empathy needs to not be restricted to people, but should reach all living animals. He believes that by doing this, empathy can reach its full potential. This concept is important since it motivates us to believe beyond ourselves and to recognize the value of all living things. It likewise motivates us to be more conscious of our actions and how they might impact other animals. By broadening our empathy to all living animals, we can develop a more ethical and thoughtful world.
