One must learn, if one is to see the beauty in Japan, to like an extraordinarily restrained and delicate loveliness.
Mary Ritter Beard

Michael K. Simpson

It's ridiculous that time and time again we need a radioactive cloud coming out of a nuclear power-station to remind us that atomic energy is extraordinarily dangerous.
'Life's That Way' was an extraordinarily difficult book to write, because it wasn't written as a book.
