“Consider, my child … the creative aspects of destruction! Consider the creative implications of the power locked in the atom! Allow your mind to rest on those first blades of tentative green grass that will poke into the light out of the larva in a million years time! … it is possible after all that in order to keep ourselves sane we will have to learn to rely on those blades of grass springing in a million years …”

-Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook
