A Quote by Albert Einstein on atoms, fear, energy, order, present, and time

. . . Since I do not foresee that atomic energy is to be a great boon for a long time, I have to say that for the present it is a menace. Perhaps it is well that it should b e. It may intimidate the human race into bringing order into its international affairs, which without the pressure of fear, it would not do.
