'' This is the exact wording of part of the translation into English of Alfred Nobel's will , which was signed in Paris on 27 November 1895.

The will was also contested by the children of Alfred Nobel's brothers, and once a settlement had been reached with the Nobel family, lengthy negotiations and compromises between the executors of the will and the Prize-Awarding Institutions were required before the statutes were approved by the Government. Even though the statutes introduced some practical rules they still left a number of points open for interpretation by the Prize-Awarding Institutions.
