Excerpt from The Nobel Peace Prize Lecture by Jimmy Carter
October 11, 2002
I am deeply grateful for this honor. I want to thank the Nobel Committee and the many people at The Carter Center who have worked side by side with me and my wife, Rosalynn, to promote peace, health, and human rights.
People everywhere share the same dream of a caring international community that prevents war and oppression. During the past two decades, as Rosalynn and I traveled around the world for the work of our Center, my concept of human rights has grown to include not only the right to live in peace, but also to adequate health care, shelter, food, and to economic opportunity.
I hope this award reflects a universal acceptance and even embrace of this broad-based concept of human rights.
This honor serves as an inspiration not only to us, but also to suffering people around the world, and I accept it on their behalf.
