If a man is to shed the light of the sun upon other men, he must first of all have it within himself.

Romain Rolland

Romain Rolland (January 29, 1866-30 December, 1944) was a French novelist, dramatist, essayist, and art historian. A lifelong pacifist, he was active in the fight against fascism and the search for world peace. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915 “as a tribute to the lofty idealism of his literary production and to the sympathy and love of truth with which he has described different types of human beings.”
