Famous quotes containing the words atomic energy, research, atomic and/or energy:

    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 forced—by what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)

    The research on gender and morality shows that women and men looked at the world through very different moral frameworks. Men tend to think in terms of “justice” or absolute “right and wrong,” while women define morality through the filter of how relationships will be affected. Given these basic differences, why would men and women suddenly agree about disciplining children?
    Ron Taffel (20th century)

    When man entered the atomic age, he opened a door into a new world. What we eventually find in that new world, nobody can predict.
    —Ted Sherdeman. Gordon Douglas. Dr. Medford (Edmund Gwenn)

    I say, stamping the words with emphasis,
    Drink from here energy and only energy,
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)
