When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and you argue about what to do about it only after you have had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he's dead, then maybe he was a great man.
I do not deny that I planned sabotage. I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness nor because I have any love of violence.
