Be careful above all things not to let go of the atomic weapon until you are sure, and more than sure, that other means of preserving peace are in your hands.

Thee will I sing in comely wainscot bound And golden verge enclosing thee around; The faithful horn before, from age to age preserving thy invulnerable page.
