atkins-bookshelf-quotationsJust as there is no loss of basic energy in the universe, so no thought or action is without its effects, present or ultimate, seen or unseen, felt or unfelt.

From The Celebration of Life: A Dialogue on Hope, Spirit, and the Immortality of the Soul (1991) by American journalist Norman Cousins (1915-1990). As editor of the Saturday Review of Literature, Cousins was a tireless advocate of world peace and nuclear disarmament. In his eloquent essay “The Modern Man is Obsolete” Cousins expressed profound guilt on behalf of mankind over the use of a nuclear bomb on innocent people.
