A Quote by Alexander Pope on atoms, god, heroism, and world

Who sees with equal eye, as God of all, A hero perish or a sparrow fall, Atoms or systems into ruin hurl'd, And now a bubble burst, and now a world.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)

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.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on atoms, belief, books, civilization, earth, fighting, men, people, thinking, and war

. . . I do not believe that civilization will be wiped out in a war fought with the atomic bomb. Perhaps two thirds of the people of the earth might be killed, but enough men capable of thinking and enough books, would be left to start again, and civilization could be restored.
