Famous quotes containing the word atomic:

    It is now time to stop and to ask ourselves the question which my last commanding officer, Admiral Hyman Rickover, asked me and every other young naval officer who serves or has served in an atomic submarine. For our Nation M for all of us M that question is, “Why not the best?”
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    Take adultery or theft.
    Merely sins.
    It is evil who dines on the soul,
    stretching out its long bone tongue.
    It is evil who tweezers my heart,
    picking out its atomic worms.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Quite often ... these little guys, who might be making atomic weapons or who might be guilty of some human rights violation ... are looking for someone to listen to their problems and help them communicate.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
