Famous quotes containing the words plants, nuclear and/or power:

    The holly and the ivy
    Are plants that are well known
    Of all the trees that grow in the woods
    The holly bears the crown.
    —Unknown. The Holly and the Ivy (l. 1–4)

    The problems of the world, AIDS, cancer, nuclear war, pollution, are, finally, no more solvable than the problem of a tree which has borne fruit: the apples are overripe and they are falling—what can be done?... Nothing can be done, and nothing needs to be done. Something is being done—the organism is preparing to rest.
    David Mamet (b. 1947)

    We have the power to do any damn fool thing we want to do, and we seem to do it about every ten minutes.
    J. William Fulbright (b. 1905)
