Famous quotes containing the words equal, petition and/or signatures:

    Martial, the things for to attain
    The happy life be these, I find:
    The riches left, not got with pain;
    The fruitful ground, the quiet mind;
    The equal friend; no grudge nor strife;
    No charge of rule nor governance;
    Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis)

    Maybe we were the blind mechanics of disaster, but you don’t pin the guilt on the scientists that easily. You might as well pin it on M motherhood.... Every man who ever worked on this thing told you what would happen. The scientists signed petition after petition, but nobody listened. There was a choice. It was build the bombs and use them, or risk that the United States and the Soviet Union and the rest of us would find some way to go on living.
    John Paxton (1911–1985)

    So many signatures for such a small heart.
