Albert Schweitzer was born this day, Jan. 14, 1875. He was a medical missionary who founded a hospital in the jungle village of Lambarene, Gabon, west central Africa. He won the Nobel Peace Prize and used the prize money to build a leper colony. Overcoming innumerable difficulties, Dr. Albert Schweitzer once wrote: "One day, in my despair, I threw myself into a chair in the consulting room and groaned out: 'What a blockhead I was to come out here to doctor savages like these!' Whereupon his native assistant quietly remarked: 'Yes, Doctor, here on earth you are a great blockhead, but not in heaven.'"
