Splash du Jour: Monday

“In the course of a few bewildering years we have found ourselves the master, or indeed the servants, of gigantic powers which confront us with problems never known before. It may be that our perils may prove our salvation. If so, this will depend upon a new elevation of the mind of man which will render him worthy of the secrets he has wrested from nature.”
-- Winston Churchill (1874-1965) Banquet speech, Apr.28th, 1954 –

"The discovery of nuclear chain reactions need not bring about the destruction of mankind any more than did the discovery of matches. We only must do everything in our power to safeguard against its abuse."
-- Albert Einstein --

Have a great Monday!

Don’t trust man, great God, with more power than he has, until he has learned to use that little better. What a hell we should make of the world if we could do what we would!” - Emerson
