Alfred Nobel's intention was, that what mankind accomplishes in its best moments through its finest efforts, shall also benefit humanity all over the world, without respect to nation, language, race or creed... (From Les Prix Nobel 1970, Nobel Foundation, Stockholm, 1971)
The difficulty is that such a confidence can only be built on truth - And nowhere in this world of ours is truth always greeted with pure pleasure. Truth goes from house to house, and the dog barks at whom he does not know, says a stern old philosopher... (From Nobel L., World Scientific Publishing Co., Singapore, 1993)
And if misfortune overtakes him, he casts the blame upon the age-long disharmony of the world, upon the complexity of today's ruptured soul, or upon the stupidity of the public... - And in misfortune, and even at the depth of existence - in destitution, in prison, in sickness - his sense of stable harmony never deserts him... - Art inflames even a frozen, darkened soul to a high spiritual experience... - When in bloodthirsty history did beauty ever save anyone from anything? - Ennobled, uplifted, yes - but whom has it saved? - So perhaps that ancient trinity of Truth, Goodness and Beauty is not simply an empty, faded formula as we thought in the days of our self-confident, materialistic youth? - In the words of Vladimir Solov'ev: "Even in chains we ourselves must complete / That circle which the gods have snapped out for us"... - Words cease to sound and run away like water - without taste, colour, smell. Without trace... - A man with 2 hearts is not for this world, neither shall we be able to live side by side on one Earth... (A. Solzhenitsyn, Nobel L. 1970)
