I saw this quote from CS Lewis's "On Living in an Atomic Age" on FB (or maybe Twitter?) a while ago, and it comes to mind again today, for obvious reasons.

If we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things - praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts - not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs. They may break our bodies (a microbe can do that) but they need not dominate our minds.
