"...the United States pledges before you

…and therefore before the world–its determination to help solve the fearful atomic dilemma–to devote its entire heart and mind to find the way by which the miraculous inventiveness of man shall not be dedicated to his death, but consecrated to his life.”

—President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Atoms for Peace
United Nations, December 8, 1953
