Quotes on Thorium
“I can still remember the thrill that came with my realization that the breeder meant inexhaustible energy.”
“I became obsessed with the Idea that humankind's whole future depended on the breeder.”
“No endeavor that is worthwhile is simple in prospect; if it is right, it will be simple in retrospect.”
“Good ideas are not adopted automatically. They must be driven into practice with courageous impatience. Once implemented they can be easily overturned or subverted through apathy or lack of follow-up, so a continuous effort is required.”
Admiral Hyman G. Rickover
“No Power is costlier than No Power”
