Famous quotes containing the word atomic:

    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)

    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)

    Other centuries had their driving forces. What will ours have been when men look far back to it one day? Maybe it won’t be the American Century, after all. Or the Russian Century or the Atomic Century. Wouldn’t it be wonderful, Phil, if it turned out to be everybody’s century, when people all over the world—free people—found a way to live together? I’d like to be around to see some of that, even the beginning.
    Moss Hart (1904–1961)
