Famous quotes containing the words balloon and/or hydrogen:
“When I am on a stage, I am the focus of thousands of eyes and it gives me strength. I feel that something, some energy, is flowing from the audience into me. I actually feel stronger because of these waves. Now when the plays done, the eyes taken away, I feel just as if a circuits been broken. The power is switched off. I feel all gone and empty inside of melike a balloon thats been pricked and the airs let out.”
—Lynn Fontanne (18871983)
“The pace of science forces the pace of technique. Theoretical physics forces atomic energy on us; the successful production of the fission bomb forces upon us the manufacture of the hydrogen bomb. We do not choose our problems, we do not choose our products; we are pushed, we are forcedby what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix.”
—Erich Fromm (19001980)
