Alfred Nobel: A Road to Eternity

“You may not have 472 million dollars and may not create such a famous prize that is primarily intended to spread goodness in humanity, but it is unequivocal that you can think of leaving a good mark after you even today. One day Alfred Nobel decided so and did it. Let me recall John Maxwell’s words that there are two important days in the life of a man. The first is when he comes into the world, and the second, when he understands why.” from Jonathan Söderblom’s speech on Alfred Nobel at the Nobel Prize ceremony.

Price of Life

“The years of the World War I were hard. To survive the hardships, you need an open heart. In Hamburg, in a small Church, the hardest day of my life I had received as a gift… what was more important I had realized its price”.
