Today is Nobel Prize day- the day in which a new recipient will be named as this years Nobel Prize winner. It’s awarded to those of who live “for the greatest benefit of mankind” as said by Alfred Nobel, the Swedish-born whose namesake was honored with the prize. Nobel lived by the words he spoke, holding 355 patents and living his life under many hats; businessman, chemist, engineer, inventor, and philanthropist.
Just as Alfred Nobel had inspired so many people, here are five inspirational people who have won the Nobel Peace Prize in the past!
“All mankind is now learning that these nuclear weapons can only serve to destroy, never become beneficial.
And thus we can hope that men will understand that the interest of all are the same, that hope lies in cooperation. We can then perhaps keep PEACE.”
