Famous quotes containing the words radiation and/or cosmic:

    There are no accidents, only nature throwing her weight around. Even the bomb merely releases energy that nature has put there. Nuclear war would be just a spark in the grandeur of space. Nor can radiation “alter” nature: she will absorb it all. After the bomb, nature will pick up the cards we have spilled, shuffle them, and begin her game again.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

    The new knowledge has not yet settled in culture. It has not yet been integrated in a new cosmic conception.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
