Great quote from this book:

In reference to the possibility of nuclear war resulting in:

"the annihilation of the irreplaceable heritage of mankind handed down to us generation from generation--and the condemnation of mankind to begin all over again the age-old struggle upward from savagery toward decency and right and justice." Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1953.
