“In the teachings of the prophets, one reality shall always be attached to science: the reality of purity of spirit and good behavior,” he said.

“The key to understanding the realities around us rests in the hands

“Humans would have always remained stranded in ignorance and would never have discovered how to improve the life we are given.”
We must allow people to speak their mind, to allow everyone to talk, so that the truth is eventually revealed by all.”
“Are these weapons to protect global security? What can a perpetual nuclear umbrella achieve for the sake of humanity? If nuclear war is waged between nuclear powers, what human catastrophe will take place?”
