"Yesterday during the tour of the Nobel Foundation I had the opportunity to view the original of Alfred Nobel's will that led to the establishment of these first truly international prizes. I could not help feeling very proud when I read the passage in which Mr. Nobel emphasized his wish to have these prizes bestowed upon the most worthy without consideration of nationality. I too have always believed that the community of science recognizes no national boundaries, and I have been practicing this belief throughout my career."

"I believe that Chandrashekhar, the astrophysicist, who also originated in India, when he received his Nobel Prize in Physics, quoted a poem of Tagore, in praise of freedom of the mind: 'where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit.' Let me praise Chandrashekhar's praising of Tagore's praising the freedom of the mind... We do need "the clear stream of reason." What Tagore, the poet, and Chandrashekhar, the physicist, demanded, we need in economics too - for much the same reason."

- Amartya Sen
