Agatha Christie

The only two TV shows I saw do that, where they don’t warm them up and you can really bomb, was Saturday Night Live – and that’s why it gets a lot of heat, too.

All the bullets and all the bombs that explode all over the world won’t leave the impact, when all is said and done, of a dollar bill dropped in the Jimmy Fund pot by a warm heart and a willing hand.

The most dangerous thing Iraq could have ever had was a nuclear weapon. The nuclear weapon Iraq was trying to build was not deliverable by bomb or ballistic missile.

And when those bombs went off, there were runners who, after finishing a marathon, kept running for another two miles to the hospital to donate blood.

Norman Finkelstein
I have now played with both him (Cristiano Ronaldo) and Ronaldinho. And Ronaldo is top in Europe at the moment.

E. B. White
Throw your stick and stones, throw your bombs and your blows, but you’re not gonna break my soul.

When the bombs rain down, the Syrian Civil Defense rush in.

I support a guaranteed basic income. I think we should take care of sick people. I believe women can make their own choices and that the government is at its best when it’s building bridges instead of bombs.
Edward Snowden
I came on the intro with ‘The Rapture.’ If you know what the rapture is, it’s the coming of Jesus, and I had to take it off because of what happened…I had the destruction, the bombs, and…the world coming to a end, so it had to come off.
Erick Sermon
For me, writing post-apocalyptic novels isn’t so much about exploding helicopters and fifty-megaton doomsday bombs as it is about the pleasure of dealing with the best of everything that makes us human: cleverness, grit, loyalty, and self-sacrifice.
Jeff Carlson
Silence means they [the audience] are paying attention. Even if I drop bombs and they’re dead quiet, it’s still okay. If they start talking, that’s when you’ve lost them.
Anthony Jeselnik
The Japanese position was hopeless even before the first atomic bomb fell because the Japanese had lost control of their own air.
Henry H. Arnold
A star on a movie set is like a time bomb. That bomb has got to be defused so people can approach it without fear.
Jack Nicholson
We [India in 70s] certainly were capable of producing eight to ten bombs, at a cost of about $250,000 each; and we had Boeing 707s to deliver them if we needed it, so I think we had a crude capability already at that time.
Subramanian Swamy
Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A Beauty Bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.
Robert Fulghum
My attitude toward peace does not depend on which war we are discussing. I think that words should do the work of bombs.
Margaret Cho
If something is right (or wrong) for us, it’s right (or wrong) for others. It follows that if it’s wrong for Cuba, Nicaragua, Haiti, and a long list of others to bomb Washington and New York, then it’s wrong for Rumsfeld to bomb Afghanistan (on much flimsier pretexts), and he should be brought before war crimes trials.
Noam Chomsky
The wheel of Time wrote the first half of the poetry of mass destruction on the black board of the ashes of a funeral ground by dint of a pair of pens of nuclear bombs.
Manmohan Acharya
Everything has changed except the way man thinks (when the hydrogen bomb was exploded)
Albert Einstein
I made one great mistake in my life-when I signed the letter to President Roosevelt recommending that atom bombs be made but there was some justification-the danger that the Germans would make them.
Albert Einstein
It was my responsibility that this world got itself an atom bomb, because there were only a handful of nuclear physicists in the thirties – only a handful. And we were all beating the desk and saying “How wonderful it will be if we discover atomic fission.”
L. Ron Hubbard
The Middle Ages burned its heretics and the modern age threatens them with atom bombs.
Harold Innis
Growing up in the fifties, having to wear a dog tag, having to take shelter in a bomb shelter. That turned me toward the road, I did not want to live in fear of that, I was gong to work somehow against what that vision was, and what that horror was. It was poetry, art, music.
Anne Waldman
If the Russians ever decide to atom bomb us, they’re certain to drop an especially large one on the plant in Pleasantville.
Billy Rose
Conservatives are fond of pointing out there are problems in this world can’t be solved by throwing money at them. There are even more that can’t be solved by dropping bombs on them.
Molly Ivins
What is tricky for those hoping to utilize such weapons is that TATP bombs are quite difficult to make because their ingredients, when combined, are highly unstable and can explode easily if mishandled.
Peter Bergen
I like to throw bombs.
Alexander Volkanovski
Unlike some of our neighbours, India does not believe in dirty bombs. We take non-proliferation very seriously.
Nirmala Sitharaman
Dear Mr. President, can I ask you a question, when the bombs fall down will they hurt everyone in my family?
John Mellencamp
But the first the general public learned about the discovery was the news of the destruction of Hiroshima by the atom bomb. A splendid achievement of science and technology had turned malign. Science became identified with death and destruction.
Joseph Rotblat
Bombs are probably more merciful than bayonets
G. H. Hardy
I don’t mind hot and spicy. Actually find that appealing in a girl … And chicken wings.” Rylann turned her head and stared at him. “Did you really just compare me to chicken wings?” “You say that like it’s a bad thing. Chicken wings are the bomb.
Julie James
You may fly over a land forever; you may bomb it, atomize it, and wipe it clean of life – but if you desire to defend it, protect it,and keep it for civilization, you must do this on the ground, the way the Roman Legions did – by putting your soldiers in the mud.
T. R. Fehrenbach
Myleene Klass is just the bomb. Her boyfriend is very lucky. She is a definite ten in every sense of the word.
David Gest
If this is a war, my side has the nuclear bomb. We have K Street. We have Wall Street. Debbie doesn’t have anybody. I want a government that is responsive to the people who got the short straw in life.
Warren Buffett
Bombs are not going to fix ISIS.
Matthew Heineman
In the year 2006, a person can have sufficient intellectual and material resources to build a nuclear bomb and still believe that he will get seventy-two virgins in Paradise.
Sam Harris
What right does the US have to do anything in Colombia? Does Colombia have the right to bomb North Carolina? There are more Colombians dying from tobacco than Americans dying from heroin.
Noam Chomsky
The content or message of any particular medium has about as much importance as the stenciling on the casing of an atomic bomb.
Marshall McLuhan
Coaching third with a pitcher on base is like being a member of a bomb disposal squad. The thing could blow up in your face at any moment.
Rocky Bridges
I happened to read recently a remark by the American nuclear physicist W. Davidson, who noted that the explosion of one hydrogen bomb releases a greater amount of energy than all the explosions set off by all countries in all wars known in the entire history of mankind. And he, apparently, is right.
Nikita Khrushchev
There are many comedians who are afraid to work outside the coasts and the casinos because they’re afraid they’ll bomb.
Elayne Boosler
With one hand, you’re selling the country out to Western multinationals. And with the other, you want to defend your borders with nuclear bombs. It’s such an irony! You’re saying that the world is a global village, but then you want to spend crores of rupees on building nuclear weapons.
Arundhati Roy
I have this theory about words. There’s a thousand ways to say “Pass the salt”. It could mean, you know, “Can I have some salt?” or it could mean, “I love you.”. It could mean, “I’m very annoyed with you”. Really, the list could go on and on. Words are little bombs, and they have a lot of energy inside them.
Christopher Walken
A man can be called ruthless if he bombs a country to oblivion. A woman can be called ruthless if she puts you on hold.
Gloria Steinem
Bombs take hours or days to reach every corner of the earth. Words arrive instantly and kill more people. They are a weapon of mass destruction.
Haim Harari
The starting line of the New York Marathon is kind of like a giant time bomb behind you about to go off. It is the most spectacular start in sport.
Bill Rodgers
If atomic bombs are to be added as new weapons to the arsenals of a warring world, or to the arsenals of nations preparing for war, then the time will come when mankind will curse the names of Los Alamos and of Hiroshima.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
Our military should spare no expense to ensure the safety of our troops, particularly as they confront a hostile insurgency and roadside bombs throughout Iraq.
Christopher Dodd
The bomb and the entrance of the Russians into the war will certainly have an effect on hastening the victory.
Henry L. Stimson
Anybody who rapes, and plunders, and enslaves, and steals, and drops hell bombs on people… anybody who does these things is nothing but a devil.
Malcolm X
The real bombs are my books, not me.
Carlos Fuentes
As a matter of fact, although we had some terrible challenges and temptations when I was in office, we never dropped a bomb… we never launched a missile… and we never fired a bullet. I think that one of the main requirements for a strong military, like a strong submarine force, is to prevent war, not to cause war.
Jimmy Carter
In the five months I wrote the final draft of ‘The Association of Small Bombs,’ I never fell out of the book. The world was real to me: plausible and powerful.
Karan Mahajan
What we’re not for is negotiating with people with a bomb strapped to their chest.
Eric Bolling
I was a child who had a life, who had hopes, and I wished that a bomb would not fall on my head.
Marjane Satrapi
That bomb that took down that Russian airliner may have been the size of a soda can. And that bomb killed more people than all the Paris attackers combined. So this is still a grave threat.
Adam Schiff
If the prime minister really believes it, he must be the only person left who thinks that the recent bombs in London had no connection at all with his policy in Iraq.
Kenneth Clarke
North Americans do not understand that you do not throw down human rights like bombs on the Iraqis.
Shirin Ebadi
Obama has been saying for years now – he said it again on Sunday – that climate change is the biggest threat facing the planet, all the while he knew that Iran is just a couple months away from a nuclear bomb.
Rush Limbaugh
François: Do you know what kind of a bomb it was? Clouseau: Yes, the exploding kind.
Peter Sellers
I have no doubt that if an actual ticking bomb situation were to arise, our law enforcement authorities would torture. The real debate is whether such torture should take place outside of our legal system or within it. The answer to this seems clear: If we are to have torture, it should be authorized by the law.
Alan Dershowitz
Unfortunately, this is a free society, and we’re gonna have people with trucks, and people with bombs.
Greta Van Susteren
Anyway, I’m sort of glad they’ve got the atomic bomb invented. If there’s ever another war, I’m going to sit right the hell on top of it. I’ll volunteer for it, I swear to God I will.
J. D. Salinger
In the target seats we have been going like a bomb and there is a great deal of confidence. I think there’s going to be a great deal of regional variation throughout the UK.
Menzies Campbell
You can’t carpet bomb ISIS if you don’t have planes and bombs to attack them with. And if we continue those cuts that we’re doing , not to mention additional cuts, we are going to be left with the oldest and the smallest Air Force this country has ever had, and that leaves us less safe.
Marco Rubio
I’ve worked with five Presidents in America, all of them I ask the same question always: Why didn’t the American allies bomb the railways going to Auschwitz?
Elie Wiesel
What has kept the world safe from the bomb since 1945 has not been deterrence, in the sense of fear of specific weapons, so much as it’s been memory. The memory of what happened at Hiroshima.
John Hersey
Paul Revere was warning the British about gun control, and George Washington apparently was crossing the Delaware to bomb an abortion clinic.
Bill Maher
Young people in college were not even born when the Berlin Wall fell, and so they are not really cognizant of the Cold War and what that meant. Now, truly, the genie is out of the bottle and you have the possibility that terrorists … could be stealing a bomb or buying a bomb
Valerie Plame
The issue isn’t the accuracy of the bombs you have, it’s how you use the bombs you have – and more importantly, whether you ought to use bombs at all.
Malcolm Gladwell
We have long forgotten the ritual by which the house of our life was erected. But when it is under assault and enemy bombs are already taking their toll, what enervated, perverse antiquities do they not lay bare in the foundations.
Walter Benjamin
British establishment uses “the royal we,” as in, “We think this.” You hear a lot of that these days. It erroneously suggests that those who are making the decisions to bomb countries, to devastate economies, to take part in acts of international piracy involve all of us.
John Pilger
Going to work just looked crazy. Eating another meal, ever, made about as much sense as planting tulip bulbs in the shadow of a falling atom bomb.
Chuck Palahniuk
Some think the worst horrors of war might be avoided by an international agreement not to use atomic bombs. This is a vain hope.
John Boyd Orr
War hurts. It hurts no matter which sides the bombs are falling on.
Eddie Vedder
Our opponent is an alien starship packed with atomic bombs,” I said. “We have a protractor.
Neal Stephenson
Yeah, well, the F-bomb – it’s become as ubiquitous as the word ‘like.’ People just throw the word ‘like’ around as punctuation. And I think in a lot of everyday speech, the F-bomb has become a kind of dash or a comma.
Geoffrey Rush
Before the first atomic bomb test, scientists took the time to calculate whether the blast would ignite the nitrogen in Earth’s atmosphere and incinerate us all. The risk was low and the test went off, but Rees wonders what the odds would have had to be to discourage the bomb makers.
Dennis Overbye
The people of Hiroshima went to work at once to restore human society in the aftermath of the great atomic flood. They were concerned to salvage their own lives, but in the process they also salvaged the souls of the people who have brought the atomic bomb.
Kenzaburo Oe
Torture is an impermissible evil. Except under two circumstances. The first is the ticking time bomb. An innocent’s life is at stake. The bad guy you have captured possesses information that could save this life. He refuses to divulge. In such a case, the choice is easy.
Charles Krauthammer
A little bloodthirsty, isn’t it? (Kim) Given what they did to Tory, I’m thinking a quick death is merciful. Not to mention they ruined one of my favorite jackets and totaled my bike. (Acheron) Well, let’s just torture then bomb the bastards. How dare they! (Pam)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Encouraging underground uranium mining on the Colorado Plateau um, the federal government was the only purchaser of uranium ore to try to manufacture uh, atomic bombs.
Tom Udall
If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.
Albert Einstein
Catholic homes caught fire because they were loaded with petrol bombs.
Ian Paisley
I do not believe that civilization will be wiped out in a war fought with the atomic bomb. Perhaps two-thirds of the people of the earth will be killed.
Albert Einstein
The Japanese do not fear God. They only fear bombs.
Jerome Cady
The savages don’t have atom bombs.
Friedrich Durrenmatt
I am thinking about something much more important than bombs. I am thinking about computers.

No. That’s Clary; shes’s my best friend.” Simon pocketed his phone. “And she has a boyfriend. Like, really, really, really has a boyfriend. The nuclear bomb of boyfriends. Trust me on this one.
Cassandra Clare
Surely something must be terribly wrong with a man who seems to be far more concerned with Jews building houses in Israel than with Muslims building a nuclear bomb in Iran.
Burt Prelutsky
Drop Pants, Not Bombs. Break Dance, Not Hearts. Draft Beer, Not People. Make LOVE, Not WAR.
Ashley Purdy
Had we not pursued the hydrogen bomb, there is a very real threat that we would now all be speaking Russian. I have no regrets.
Edward Teller
What can bombs know of the illuminated fields so golden with heaven in your heart’s sacred lands?
Aberjhani
The human murder by poverty in Latin America is secret: every year, without making a sound, three Hiroshima bombs explode over communities that have become accustomed to suffering with clenched teeth.
Eduardo Galeano
Israel uses sophisticated attack jets and naval vessels to bomb densely-crowded refugee camps, schools, apartment blocks, mosques, and slums to attack a population that has no air force, no air defense, no navy, no heavy weapons, no artillery units, no mechanized armor, no command in control, no army and calls it a war.
Noam Chomsky
Ideas and philosophies change just as machines do. Religions changed because of the birth control pill. Politics changes because of the hydrogen bomb. All because of science fictional inventions.
Ray Bradbury
Let a short Act of Parliament be passed, placing all street musicians outside the protection of the law, so that any citizen
may assail them with stones, sticks, knives, pistols or bombs without incurring any penalties.
George Bernard Shaw
The Lord’s our shepherd, says the psalm. But just in case, we better get a bomb.
Tom Lehrer
I bomb atomically, Socrates’ philosophies and hypotheses Can’t define how I be dropping these mockeries. Lyrically perform armed robbery, Flee with the lottery, possibly they spotted me.
Inspectah Deck
If this can be termed the century of the common man, then soccer, of all sports, is surely his game…. In a world haunted by the hydrogen and napalm bomb, the football field is a place where sanity and hope are still left unmolested.
Stanley Rous
Here’s some news from Afghanistan. We’re sending more troops to seal up the borders. Can we try that here? Three months, 12,000 pounds of bombs and billions and billions of dollars and the highest ranking enemy we’ve captured so far is an American.
David Letterman
Coonskin caps, Yankee bats, the Hound Dog man’s big start. The A-bomb fears, Annette had ears, I lusted in my heart.
John Fogerty
My job was to produce plutonium that was used for atomic bomb.
Mordechai Vanunu
The atom bomb fueled the entire world that came after it. It showed that indiscriminate killing and indiscriminate homicide on a mass level was possible … whereas if you look at warfare up until that point, you had to see somebody to shoot them or maim them, you had to look at them. You don’t have to do that anymore.
Bob Dylan
It is the large brain capacity which allows man to live as a human being, enjoy taxes, canned salmon, television, and the atomic bomb.
Gustav Heinrich Ralph von Koenigswald
A dagger is the noble weapon of Brutus. Everyone understands that tyrants fall to daggers. A bomb is a sordid modern device with many complex working parts. Only engineers understand bombs
Bruce Sterling
ItВ’s very easy to capture pictures of jubilant people in the street after the nuclear bomb. But there were no pictures of morose people sitting in their kitchens and living rooms.
Amartya Sen
On the Gang of Eight bill, there was no provisions really for extra scrutiny or safety for refugees. At the time the bill came up, two Iraqi refugees came to my home town, Bowling Green, Kentucky. Their fingerprints were on a bomb from Iraq. They were in the database, but we didn’t pick them up.
Rand Paul
The White House is the leakiest place I’ve ever been in. (On special measures to ensure secrecy of plans to bomb Libya)
Ronald Reagan
We are the generation that brought the bomb in. We have got to be the generation that should take it out.
Martin Sheen
We must shed the old stereotype of anarchists as bearded bomb throwers furtively stalking about city streets at night.
Stephen Jay Gould
ISIS says they want to go back and reject modernity? Well, I think we should help them. We ought to bomb them back to the Stone Age.
Ted Cruz
Who is against democracy? Is it the one who calls for peaceful resistance, or the one who bombs people, sheds their blood and leads them away from the leaders under feeble and dirty pretexts?
Muqtada al Sadr
The bottom line is this – whereas Iran was steadily expanding its nuclear program, we have now cut off every single path that Iran could have used to build a bomb.
Barack Obama
You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point.
Bill Bryson
In what was called the second siege of Leningrad, thousands died, but Putin and his partners in crime got rich. Then Putin killed even more Russians when he had the FSB explode bombs in apartment buildings in Moscow in 1999 to give himself the pretext to seize dictatorial powers.
Robert Zubrin
It is only when science asks why, instead of simply describing how, that it becomes more than technology. When it asks why, it discovers Relativity. When it only shows how, it invents the atom bomb, and then puts its hands over its eye and says, My God what have I done?
Ursula K. Le Guin
I repeat what I suggest in my book [ Strategie de la deception]. The first deterrence, nuclear deterrence, is presently being superseded by the second deterrence: a type of deterrence based on what I call ‘the information bomb’ associated with the new weaponry of information and communications technologies.
Paul Virilio
Someone threw a petrol bomb at Alex Higgins once and he drank it!
Frank Carson
Our enemies are fully aware that they can use oil as a weapon against America. And if we don’t take this threat as seriously as the bombs they build or the guns they buy, we will be fighting the War on Terror with one hand tied behind our back.
Barack Obama
What you tend to find in the personal lives of brilliant men is devastation akin to a nuclear bomb going off.
Marisha Pessl
If I had to perform in a comedy club I would bomb; I would be trying too hard.
Henry Rollins
I don’t like that The Simpsons are spokespeople for Burger King and MasterCard and Butterfinger. In the first Gulf War, I was really upset that the Simpsons characters were being drawn on tanks and bombs. But those are things that I don’t control.
George Meyer
I’ve learned that next to the atomic bomb, the greatest danger is defeatism, despair, and inadequate awareness of what human beings possess. I feel that any problem that can be defined is capable of being resolved. Out of this has come my conviction that no person knows enough to be a pessimist.
Norman Cousins
If we want to fight people in the world, we should fight them with pillows – pillows stuffed with food, medicine, music… That would be so much cheaper than bombs.
Alice Walker
I propose getting rid of conventional armaments and replacing them with reasonably priced hydrogen bombs that will be distributed equally throughout the world.
Idi Amin
Saddam Hussein has invited members from the U.S. Congress to visit Iraq. Man how stupid is Hussein? If you think Bush had incentive to bomb Iraq before, imagine if Congress was over there.
Jay Leno
The chattering bloody classes, or what I call the liberal Guardian readers, they’re all buying SUVs to drive around London. I smile at these loons who drive their SUVs down to Sainsbury’s and buy kiwi fruit, flown in from New Zealand for Christ sakes. They’re the equivalent of environmental nuclear bombs!
Michael O’Leary
If we had the atom bomb, we would have used it against the British.
Mahatma Gandhi
The films I’ve done with all my heart have gone on to become huge hits. When I set out to do a ‘mass masala’ intending to please B and C centres, it bombs.
Akkineni Nagarjuna
When I was 18, I went to the Soviet Union. I kept hearing that America was planning to bomb them – lots of bombs were going to come down on these people. I went there not knowing anything, except that I thought the whole thing was stupid and that I wanted to see who these people were that we were going to bomb.
Alice Walker
I think there were times when I first started out, when I was covering Iraq – I was basically living there in 2003 and 2004 – that car bombs and attacks became so the norm that it was weird for me to leave and realize that no one else actually cared about what was going on there.
Lynsey Addario
We scientists are clever — too clever — are you not satisfied? Is four square miles in one bomb not enough? Men are still thinking. Just tell us how big you want it!
Richard P. Feynman
Christian education is a bomb with a long fuse – it takes a while to go off.
Howard G. Hendricks
He remembered Simon warning him, with wryness, that Clary had the nuclear bomb of boyfriends.
Cassandra Clare
Our dreams of a pure virtue are dissolved in a situation in which it is possible to exercise the virtue of responsibility toward a community of nations only by courting the prospective guilt of the atomic bomb.
Reinhold Niebuhr
America My Country: last nation on earth to abolish human slavery; first of all nations to drop the nuclear bomb on our fellow human beings.
Edward Abbey
The art of Frida Kahlo is a ribbon around a bomb.
Andre Breton
The increase in the amount of heat in the oceans amounts to 17 x 10^22 Joules over the last 30 years. That is so much energy it is equivalent to exploding a Hiroshima bomb every second in the ocean for thirty years.
Stefan Rahmstorf
Something like ‘The Matrix’ would be ideal, something where it’s super agents and wire work and special effects – not necessarily running from bombs and shooting people. Something more sleek, like an assassin.
Nadine Velazquez
The mask can be a limitation, but you just deal with it. You do get superhuman strength and pumpkin bombs and all this other stuff to express yourself with.’
Willem Dafoe
I am not sure why, but I have been obsessed by the Atom Bomb ever since it first happened.
Lanford Wilson
Yousef Aid Ahmed has memorized the places where his four brothers’ bodies laid after they were killed by US marines, he said. The family recounts that November day in 2005 and says it was a massacre of the brothers, along with 20 other people, following a roadside bomb in Haditha.
James Mattis
With bombs and fires, you get only one mistake.
Red Adair
From her dubious tone alone, I could see how Karin had no idea how terrifying words spoken quietly could be. How words chosen precisely to wreak maximum damage ticked like a bomb in your head, but exploded in your heart hours later, leaving you scarred and changed.
Justina Chen
Kieran Tierney is a lot like Ashley Cole in the way that he bombs up and down the flanks and that he is also so physically strong. He plays every game as well. He is not the tallest but he is a fighter and he is strong. He crosses, gets back and defends. He is a very good player.
Kolo Toure
It is just as much a matter of chance that I am still alive as that I might have been hit. In a bomb-proof dug-out I may be smashed to atoms and in the open may survive ten hour’s bombardment unscratched. No soldier outlives a thousand chances. But every soldier believes in Chance and trusts his luck.
Erich Maria Remarque
The atom bomb was no great decision. It was merely another powerful weapon in the arsenal of righteousness.
Harry S. Truman
Not that I don’t think irreverent humor and someone being filthy is funny, I just do what I do. Any comedian would admit throwing an f-bomb in there would help get a reaction. … I’m not on a Puritanical pursuit, but when I would curse in a joke, I believe I’m not done writing it.
Jim Gaffigan
Guy got in a gyrocopter in Gettysburg, flew under the radar all the way to Washington and came – What if he had had rather than petitions to Congress had had a bomb?
Karl Rove
Let us have a dagger between our teeth, a bomb in our hands and an infinite scorn in our hearts.
Benito Mussolini
A great power imposes the obligation of exercising restraint, and we did not live up to this obligation. I think this affected many of the scientists in a subtle sense, and it diminished their desire to continue to work on the bomb.
Leo Szilard
My God! The English language is a form of communication! Conversation isn’t just crossfire where you shoot and get shot at! Where you’ve got to duck for your life and aim to kill! Words aren’t only bombs and bullets — no, they’re little gifts, containing meanings!
Philip Roth
Conquer land like Napoleon, military bomb fest
We want sanitary food, planetary conquest
U-God
Gracious Lord, oh bomb the Germans. Spare their women for Thy Sake, And if that is not too easy, We will pardon Thy Mistake. But, gracious Lord, whate’er shall be, Don’t let anyone bomb me.
John Betjeman
‎The greatest danger of a terrorist’s bomb is in the explosion of stupidity that it provokes.
Octave Mirbeau
I mean you can learn how to build a bullet or build a gun or build a bomb on the Internet.
Barbara Bush
Roadside bombs that Iran sent to Iraq to blow up over 500 American soldiers cost a lot less than $1.7 billion.
Tom Cotton
Atom bombs, something’s wrong. D.E.A sent to Guam. Acid Trips, big fat chics. Purple Finstone Vitamins.All the needy rich are greedy. I find out you don’t need me. Berlin wall starts to fall. I trip out to the wall. Hooray Horrah
Chester Bennington
I don’t like hope very much. In fact, I hate it. It’s the crystal meth of emotions. It hooks you fast and kills you hard. It’s bad news. The worst. It’s sharp sticks and cherry bombs. When hope shows up, it’s only a matter of time until someone gets hurt.
Jennifer Donnelly
Anyone that’s been with WWE, there’s frustrations of feeling like you can only do so much. The women are told not to punch or to kick, to do power bombs and the power moves, and none of that exists in ‘Lucha Underground.’
John Morrison
Enough of this foreign fiasco distraction. Get back to work. It is time to bomb Obamacare.
Sarah Palin
When you have been just told that the girl you love is definitely betrothed to another, you begin to understand how Anarchists must feel when the bomb goes off too soon.
P. G. Wodehouse
It’s Christmas at Ground Zero The button has been pressed The radio Just let us know That this is not a test Everywhere the atom bombs are droppin It’s the end of all humanity No more time for last minute shoppin’ It’s time to face your final destiny.
Charles Sumner
Just as dogs love to chew bones, the mind loves to get its teeth into problems. That’s why it does crossword puzzles and builds atom bombs.
Eckhart Tolle
The H-bomb rather favors small nations that doesn’t as yet possess it; they feel slightly more free to jostle other nations, having discovered that a country can stick its tongue out quite far these days without provoking war, so horrible are war’s consequences.
E. B. White
Putting a bomb in a dumpster or putting it with a timer by a race, it is not the kind of – similar to the attacks that we’ve seen where people open fire with assault rifles and things like that.
Richard Engel
Bombs are good. I love bombs.”–Iggy
James Patterson
Mass travel by air may prove to be more significant to world destiny than the atom bomb.
Juan Trippe
So I do have this ambivalence. Obviously I’m against militaries, because of what militaries do. In many ways though, the air force was unmilitary-like. They dropped bombs on people, but…they had a golf course.
George Carlin
The enemy bombards our front not only with a drumfire of artillery, but also with a drumfire of printed paper. Besides bombs, which kill the body, his airmen also throw down leaflets which are intended to kill the soul.
Paul von Hindenburg
I wonder which of the megaton bombs Jesus, our President’s personal savior, would have personally dropped on the sleeping families of Baghdad?
Meryl Streep
What is meant by: “We mustn’t give in to the terrorists”? We gave in to them the moment the first bombs fell on Afghanistan.
Terry Jones
I don’t want to talk about methods of killing. But what is the difference between a bomb worn on the body and one dropped from an airplane? Both of them kill people.
Bashar al-Assad
I grew up never seeing myself on-screen, and it’s really important to me to give people who look like me a chance to see themselves. I want to see myself as the hero of any story. I want to see myself save the world from the bomb.
Sandra Oh
When windows shatter through a bomb, we will repair it next week because we are Afghans. That’s the spirit.
Ashraf Ghani
Don’t you know. I am a ticking time bomb. I’m going to explode. This time, I may never be able to recover from it!
Lee In-woo
The car bomb was fertilizer, gasoline, fireworks and propane tanks…still safer than a Toyota.
Bill Maher
But the last time the Cubs won a National League pennant
Was the year we dropped the bomb on Japan
Steve Goodman
Forks and spoons have probably done more to reconcile people who cannot agree than guns and bombs ever did
Theodore Zeldin
I think the fact that Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World and talked about anthrax bombs probably helped because at least we… people had the understanding before the war began that’s something we didn’t want to get into.
Freeman Dyson
I do not believe the greatest threat to our future is from bombs or guided missiles. I don’t think our civilization will die that way. I think it will die when we no longer care when the spiritual forces that make us wish to be right and noble die in our hearts.
Laurence McKinley Gould
Those bombs have brought me immeasurable pain. Even now, some 40 years later, I am still receiving treatment for burns that cover my arms, back, and neck. The emotional and spiritual pain was even harder to endure.
Phan Thi Kim Phuc
There is nothing romantic about teargas. Or smoke bombs or rubber bullets or sound cannons.
DeRay Mckesson
But the thing that I saw in your face no power can disinherit: No bomb that ever burst shatters the crystal spirit.
George Orwell
The use of fetuses as organ and tissue donors is a ticking time bomb of bioethics.
Arthur Caplan
However, we do not lack anti-terrorist laws. I do not believe that the recent London bombs were the result of any deficiencies in our legal system.
Kenneth Clarke
If he were allowed contact with foreigners he would discover that they are creatures similar to himself and that most of what he has been told about them is lies. The sealed world in which he lives would be broken, and the fear, hatred and self-righteousness on which his morale depends might evaporate.
George Orwell
The good Lord gave me eight grandchildren, and I am convinced that through schools like Desert Christian that we are going to overwhelm the adversaries, not just with bombs and bullets, but with the demonstration of Christian principles.
Oliver North
The guns and the bombs, the rockets and the warships, are all symbols of human failure.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Agriculture is now a motorized food industry, the same thing in its essence as the production of corpses in the gas chambers and the extermination camps, the same thing as blockades and the reduction of countries to famine, the same thing as the manufacture of hydrogen bombs.
Martin Heidegger
On the day they dropped the bomb Frank had a tablespoon and a Mason jar. What he was doing was spooning different kinds of bugs into the jar and making them fight….I can remember other bug fights we staged later on…They won’t fight unless you keep shaking the jar.
Kurt Vonnegut
If we do nothing, we are handing our children a ticking time bomb that will require they pay ever greater payroll taxes just as they are beginning their careers, starting their own families and staking their claim to the American Dream.
John McCain
When the START 2 treaty has been implemented – and remember it has not yet been ratified – we will be left with some 15,000 nuclear warheads, active and in reserve. Fifteen thousand weapons with an average yield of 20 Hiroshima bombs.
Joseph Rotblat
I turned atheist in the 90s when India went through troubled times – communal riots, bomb blasts… Mumbai, where I live, was badly affected. I blamed religion; also, extremists on both sides – right and left.
Amish Tripathi
I am so sick of reading about another car bomb, another suicide bomber, another 10, 20, 30, 70, 100 people dead in a day, both Americans and Iraqis.
Rosanne Cash
I did not like [Pablo Escobar] actions because I did not think it was right to have bombs placed in a non-discriminatory fashion throughout the entire country.
Juan Pablo Escobar
I think that American salesmanship can be a weapon more powerful than the atomic bomb.
Henry J. Kaiser
If we fight a war and win it with H-bombs, what history will remember is not the ideals we were fighting for, but the methods we used to accomplish them. These methods will be compared to the warfare of Genghis Khan who ruthlessly killed every last inhabitant of Persia.
Hans Bethe
If atomic bombs are to be added as new weapons to the arsenals of a warring world, or to the arsenals of nations preparing for war, then the time will come when mankind will curse the names of Los Alamos and Hiroshima. The people must unite or they will perish.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
I learned how to skate, I couldn’t do the tricks, but I could certainly skate fast enough. I could keep up with anybody and I could bomb hills and I could hide behind my camera.
Larry Clark
The atom bomb is a paper tiger which the United States reactionaries use to scare people. It looks terrible, but in fact it isn’t.
Mao Zedong
The decision to use the atom bomb on Japanese cities, and the consequent buildup of enormous nuclear arsenals, was made by governments, on the basis of political and military perceptions.
Joseph Rotblat
The ultimate weapon isn’t this plague out in Vegas, or any new super H-bomb. The ultimate weapon has always existed. Every man, every woman, and every child owns it. It’s the ability to say No and take the consequences.
Robert Anton Wilson
I should think the American admiration of five-minute tourists has done more to kill the sacredness of old European beauty and aspiration than multitudes of bombs would have done.
D. H. Lawrence
I think that if the atomic bomb did nothing more, it scared the people to the point where they realized that either they must do something about preventing war or there is a chance that there might be a morning when we would not wake up.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Man acts only when he is sure of the justness of his action, as we threw the bomb in the Legislative Assembly
Bhagat Singh
Are you aware it is private property? Why you’ll be asking be to bomb Essen next.
Kingsley Wood
The problem is that the Iraqi people are facing atrocities from both sides – Zarqawi and also the American troops at times. The Zarqawi groups uses car bombs, the Americans use other bombs. You also know what they do in the prisons.
Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani
I pulled out the manuscript [from the envelope] and a great big stiff cardboard finger sprung up. This is someone that was so certain they would be rejected, they would be getting their revenge in advance. I was lucky – it could have been a pipe bomb.
Gardner Dozois
You know what really shuts up a bully? Learning how to build a pipe-bomb!
Daniel Tosh
One can become enthusiastic over anything. For a time I was delighted with bomb throwing. It gave me a tremendous pleasure to bomb those fellows from above.
Manfred von Richthofen
The point of nonviolence is to build a floor, a strong new floor, beneath which we can no longer sink. A platform which stands a few feet above napalm, torture, exploitation, poison gas, A and H bombs, the works. Give man a decent place to stand.
Joan Baez
Anger is a fuel. You need fuel to launch a rocket. But if all you have is fuel without any complex internal mechanism directing it, you don’t have a rocket. You have a bomb
Stanley Bing
Look, we’re all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house – in the bedroom he’s asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he’s rolling around with some bare ass girl, in the library he’s paying his taxes, in the yard he’s raising tomatoes and in the cellar he’s making a bomb to blow it all up.
Arthur Miller
Our world will not die as the result of the bomb, as the papers say, it will die of laughter, of banality, or making a joke of everything, and a lousy joke at that.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
They have involved co-operation between the Iraqi intelligence and al-Qaeda operatives on training and combined operations regarding bomb making and chemical and biological weapons.
Douglas J. Feith
My solution to the problem would be to tell [the North Vietnamese Communists] frankly that they’ve got to draw in their horns and stop their aggression or we’re going to bomb them into the Stone Age. And we would shove them back into the Stone Age with Air power or Naval power – not with ground forces.
Curtis LeMay
In Iraq, the U.S. military’s whack-a-mole approach to killing Saddam Hussein may have finally paid off. The bombs destroyed the area and left behind a 60-foot crater, or as coalition forces prefer to call it: a freedom hole.
Jon Stewart
The A-bomb is dynamite.
Samuel Goldwyn
‘Cyberwar’ has nothing to do with the destruction brought about by bombs and grenades and so on.
Paul Virilio
The most fearful phenomenon of these midcentury years is not the atom bomb; atomic energy does have its constructive possibilities…. The most fearful event of these times is the colossal expansion of the government of the United States and the constant increase of executive power within the government.
Wheeler McMillen
The dropping of the Atomic Bomb is a very deep problem… Instead of commemorating Hiroshima we should celebrate… man’s triumph over the problem [of transmutation], and not its first misuse by politicians and military authorities.
Frederick Soddy
The one great gift to humankind from our nuclear physicists has been the nuclear bomb. How can we ever thank them?
Edward Abbey
She stared at me. “Fly, ;ole, in an airplane, which you were warned never to do lest Zeus strike you out of the sky, AND carrying a weapon that has more destructive power than a nuclear bomb?” “Yeah,” I said. “Pretty much exactly like that.
Rick Riordan
Not since the British raided Cologne had so many bombs landed in such a small space in such a short time.
Rod Serling
After the thing went off, after it was a sure thing that America could wipe out a city with just one bomb, a scientist turned to Father and said, ‘Science has now known sin.’ And do you know what Father said? He said, ‘What is sin?
Kurt Vonnegut
To the seeker after the new, or the sensational, to those who expect a sinister frisson from modern music, it is my melancholy duty to point out that all the bomb throwing and guillotining has already taken place.
Constant Lambert
I suspect the soviets never did want to use those bombs. The most Stalinist of Soviet hard-liners – Stalin, for example – must have realized a nuclear war would be a hard thing to clean up after.
P. J. O’Rourke
Democracy never comes by the barrel of a gun, or by cluster bombs.
Malalai Joya
I mean, I was born the day war broke out, but I don’t remember all the bombs though they did actually break up Liverpool, you know. I remember when I was a little older, there was big gaps in all the streets where houses used to be. We used to play over them.
Ringo Starr
As someone remarked, when told the new atomic bombs would explode without a bang, “they can’t leave anything alone.”
Quentin Crisp
Bombing, particularly from the perspective of the receiving end, is not ‘communication.’ Bombs result in death and destruction.
H. R. McMaster
No place is safe – no place is at peace. There is no place where a women and her daughter can hide and be at peace. The war comes through the air, bombs drop in the night. Quiet people go out in the morning, and see air-fleets passing overhead – dripping death – dripping death!
H. G. Wells
Suppose atomic bombs had reduced the population of the world to one brother and sister; should they let the human race die out?
Bertrand Russell
We do not need guns and bombs to bring peace, we need love and compassion.
Mother Teresa
My grandmother is a Holocaust survivor. Some heroes of mine have long been the Jewish Partisans, these young people who just went into the woods with whatever guns and bombs and what not they could get their hands on, and just would fight Nazis, and try to help people escape.
Margaret D. Klein
Some people believe that the nuclear bomb should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, since it scared the major powers away from war by equating it with doomsday.
Steven Pinker
The dropping of bombs on people – isn’t that terrorism?
Alice Walker
‘Revolution’ does not necessarily involve sanguinary strife nor is there any place in it for individual vendetta. It is not the cult of the bomb and the pistol. By ‘Revolution’ we mean that the present order of things, which is based on manifest injustice, must change.
Bhagat Singh
How many n-bombs are dropped? It depends on what I post.
Eric Andre
Terrorists are not following Islam. Killing people and blowing up people and dropping bombs in places and all this is not the way to spread the word of Islam. So people realize now that all Muslims are not terrorists.
Muhammad Ali
Pressure hulls collapse at the speed of sound. Once that starts, you’re inside your own little imploding atomic bomb, and you’re gone.
Graham Hawkes
The Iranian regime calls for the annihilation of Israel, it oppresses its own citizens, it’s part of the murder going on in Syria and it’s building an atomic bomb.
Mark Regev
Louder Than Bombs’ shows our inner shadows.
J-Hope
The way I see it is that love can put an end to this bureaucracy people go through in their relationships. But it can’t blind you to the fact that maybe there are bombs, there are problems and the ozone layer is depleting.
Adrienne Shelly
A single bomb of this type, carried by boat and exploded in a port, might very well destroy the whole port, together with some of the surrounding territory.
Albert Einstein
There’s detailed information on how to assemble a nuclear weapon from parts. There’s books about how to build a nuclear bomb.
Irwin Redlener
Want to know what’s more destructive than a nuclear bomb? Words.
Kim Jong-un
Like crime, terrorism is a fact of life. I grew up in Israel, where every unattended bag was a suspected bomb; when my family moved for a few years, it was to London in the early years of the Troubles.
Yochai Benkler
The struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.
Ronald Reagan
I will have nothing to do with a bomb!
Lise Meitner
Geez, all that money we waste on space exploration; just think how many bombs that would buy!
Craig Bruce
We had news this morning of another successful atomic bomb being dropped on Nagasaki. These two heavy blows have fallen in quick succession upon the Japanese and there will be quite a little space before we intend to drop another.
Henry L. Stimson
The bombs held in current nuclear arsenals are seventy times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Nagasaki. If we don’t begin opposing the drift towards more and more of them, we will live in the shadow of the mushroom cloud for the rest of our lives – and millions may die there.
Johann Hari
Genuine dialogue, not rhetorical bomb-throwing, leads to progress.
Mark Udall
Conflict photographers grapple with two worlds that are themselves often in conflict – the one where bombs fall and bullets fly, where adrenaline runs high, and the other, back home, which is comparatively secure, and where the big event of the day may involve selecting swatches of fabric for a new sofa.
Alan Huffman
Radio – and perhaps airplanes, and then of course, the atom bomb – was the preeminent technology of the first half of the 20th century. It was how the Third Reich controlled its citizens, spread lies, and disseminated fear.
Anthony Doerr
From now on we shall bomb Germany on an ever-increasing scale, month by month, year by year, until the Nazi regime has either been exterminated by us or – better still – torn to pieces by the German people themselves.
Winston Churchill
It’s clearly established in terms of training, provision of bomb-making experts, training of people with respect to chemical and biological warfare capabilities, that al-Qaeda sent personnel to Iraq for training and so forth.
Dick Cheney
It’s a bomb. Just like you.
Maggie Stiefvater
Of course, violence will not end with our combat mission. Extremists will continue to set off bombs, attack Iraqi civilians and try to spark sectarian strife. But ultimately, these terrorists will fail to achieve their goals.
Barack Obama
Sundays kill more people than bombs.
Charles Bukowski
When you drop bombs on the enemy, you drop those same bombs on yourself, your own country.
Nhat Hanh
I’m fascinated with the attitude of younger rock bands, even ones that are making money at it. I don’t ever hear them talk about it as a “career.” It almost makes me think there isn’t even a music industry anymore, like an atom bomb fell and it was just eradicated forever.
Travis Morrison
When the President of Iran talks about removing Israel from the face of the Earth and is building nuclear bombs with a range of 3000km, you have to be worried.
Ehud Olmert
We did more to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions with a computer virus than we ever could have with bombs (and we did still more with diplomacy – the abandonment of which is also bad for our military, because militaries can only stop a problem, not fix a problem).
Joe Sestak
That’s the problem with heartbreak, to you it’s like an atomic bomb but to the world it’s just a cliche because in the end we all have the same experience.
Olivia
Assumptions are dangerous things to make, and like all dangerous things to make – bombs, for instance, or strawberry shortcake – if you make even the tiniest mistake you can find yourself in terrible trouble.
Daniel Handler
Love is the real nuclear bomb that destroys all our enemies, because when we love all living beings, we have no enemies.
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
If my comrades are not destined to rule the world, then away with it! A shower of atom bombs upon it and in place of its meaningsless chatter about ‘love’ and ‘peace’ the voice of the howling wind over its ruins.
Savitri Devi
I know I don’t want to take the Lord’s name in vain, and I don’t want to drop any F-bombs.
Larry the Cable Guy
We live in a world of guns, bombs and terror. To conquer hate seems a nigh-impossible task.
Theodore Bikel
The bombs in Vietnam explode at home; they destroy the hopes and possibilities for a decent America.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Travel is one of the best anti-war weapons that there are. I’ve been to Iran, and if you’re there you see little kids, cops, old people, cemeteries. Once you see that, you can’t say, ‘Oh, Iran, let’s bomb them.’
Viggo Mortensen
When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and you argue about what to do about it only after you have had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
Andrew Breitbart, self-described media mogul, had several screws loose or missing and was the grinning bomb-thrower of the radical right. He was the attack dog kept on a tight leash and brought out on special occasions to hiss and to menace.
Bill Ayers
What I could have done in real life only by throwing a bomb which would have led to the scaffold I tried to achieve in painting by using color of maximum purity. In this way I satisfied my urge to destroy old conventions, to disobey in order to re-create a tangible, living, and liberated world.
Maurice de Vlaminck
The crowd is a performer. En masse, a crowd has its own personality, its own character. And there are going to be nights when the crowd delivers a great performance. And there are going to be nights when the crowd bombs.
Paul Heyman
For over ten years, bombs rained down on every village and hamlet in South Vietnam, and no one budged. It took the coming of a Communist ‘peace’ to send hundreds of thousands of people out into the South China Sea, on anything that could float, or might float, to risk dehydration, piracy, drowning . . .
Vernon A. Walters
When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I just went to work for a vampire, was scared by a spider, and got knocked down by a tanning bomb. And that’s just my day, not my week.
Rachel Caine
What is superstition , but misguided, unobjective science? And when it comes down to that, is it to be wondered if people grasp at superstition in this rotten, hate-filled, half-doomed world of today? Lord knows, I’d welcome the blackest of black magic, if it could do anything to stave off the atom bomb.
Fritz Leiber
During the Battle of Britain the question “fighter or fighter-bomber?” had been decided once and for all: The fighter can only be used as a bomb carrier with lasting effect when sufficient air superiority has been won.
Adolf Galland
If the United States wants to prevent other countries from acquiring the bomb, it must be prepared to reduce and eventually end its own reliance on nuclear weapons.
David Cortright
I had become an atheist at the age of thirteen, when atomic bombs were dropped on Japan.
Paul Krassner
I love taking baths with Lush bath bombs, or just sitting in a dark room and watching Netflix to turn my brain off.
Tess Holliday
My piece in One World or None was the description of the effect of a single atomic bomb on New York City.
Philip Morrison
I’m just baffled in the 21st century we as human beings are still dropping bombs on each other as a means to resolve issues.
Katharine Gun
All those involved in the firebombing of Tokyo .. were war criminals interviews recorded in the movie The Fog of War.. the firebombing of Tokyo occurred before the atom bombs.. 100,000 civilians died in one night from American bombs.. 500,000 altogether over several days say some.
Robert McNamara
People who talk of outlawing the atomic bomb are mistaken – what needs to be outlawed is war.
Leslie Groves
When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, the United States struck back. She didn’t go and bomb – she bombed any part of Japan. She dropped the bomb on Hiroshima. Those people in Hiroshima probably hadn’t even, some of them; most of them hadn’t even killed anybody.
Malcolm X
The man who throws a bomb is an artist, because he prefers a great moment to everything.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
The real abhorrent consequence of the invention of atomic bombs is the fact that we still have them and they’re spreading.
Barry Commoner
Mankind invented the atomic bomb,
but no mouse would ever construct
a mousetrap.
Albert Einstein
You know why the French don’t want to bomb Saddam Hussein? Because he hates America, he loves mistresses, and he wears a beret. He is French, people.
Conan O’Brien
How simple-minded of the Germans to imagine that we British could be cowed by the destruction of our ancient monuments! As though any havoc of the German bombs could possibly equal the things we have done ourselves!
Osbert Sitwell
I have to decide Japanese strategy – shall we invade Japan proper or shall we bomb and blockade? That is my hardest decision to date. But I’ll make it when I have all the facts.
Harry S. Truman
There is more dynamite in an idea than in many bombs.
John H. Vincent
Cause if you shoot a bullet someone dies. If you drop a bomb many die. You hit a woman, love dies. But if you say the F-word… nothing actually happens.
Richard Curtis
Confronted with a choice, the American people would choose the policeman’s truncheon over the anarchist’s bomb.
Spiro T. Agnew
If torture is going to be administered as a last resort in the ticking-bomb case, to save enormous numbers of lives, it ought to be done openly, with accountability, with approval by the president of the United States or by a Supreme Court justice.
Alan Dershowitz
The world is on fire; time is a bomb.
Ten thousand years are not enough
When so much remains to be done
Jeet Thayil
If Disney still wants to make Epcot Center futuristic, they could do so by blowing the place up with an atom bomb.
P. J. O’Rourke
I don’t see a great difference between someone sending a robot or a drone to bomb people and controlling it on a PlayStation from another country. It’s thousands of miles away as opposed to someone in an airplane who is thousands of feet away releasing a bomb.
Gary Oldman
I accept chaos. I am not sure whether it accepts me. I know some people are terrified of the bomb. But then some people are terrified to be seen carrying a modern screen magazine. Experience teaches us that silence terrifies people the most.
Bob Dylan
I do not like this word “bomb.” It is not a bomb. It is a device that is exploding.
Jacques LeBlanc
David Lee Roth had the idea that if you covered a successful song, you were half way home. C’mon – Van Halen doing ‘Dancing in the Streets’? It was stupid. I started feeling like I would rather bomb playing my own songs than be successful playing someone else’s music.
Eddie Van Halen
You can’t disassemble a bomb unless you understand how it was built.
Josh Tickell
Thank God for the bomb. Nuke ya, nuke ya.
Ozzy Osbourne
Look at black people dying and suffering in South Africa. I ask why. We’ve dropped bombs on no one, we’ve harmed no one in the world, yet for some incredible reason, black people have suffered at an extraordinary level all over the world.
Ron Dellums
Ah, if I were dictator I’d have poets throwing bombs!
Gregory Corso
A woman wouldn’t make a bomb that kills you. A woman would make a bomb that makes you feel bad for a while. That’s why there should be a woman President. There’d never be any wars, just every twenty-eight days there’d be very intense negotiations.
Robin Williams
In a war you have to take up arms and people will get killed, and I can support that kind of action by petrol bombing and bombs under cars, and probably at a later stage, the shooting of vivisectors on their doorsteps. It’s a war, and there’s no other way you can stop vivisectors.
Tim Daly
It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about bombs or the intelligence quotients of one race as against another if a man is a scientist, like me, he’ll always say Publish and be damned.
Jacob Bronowski
Even if I could talk face to face with the pilot who dropped the bombs I would tell him, ‘We cannot change history, but we should try to do good things for the present and for the future to promote peace.’
Phan Thi Kim Phuc
Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything – you can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.
Robert A. Heinlein
I don’t care whether a role is 10 minutes long or two hours. And I don’t care whether my name is up there on top, either. Matter of fact, I’d rather have someone else get top billing; then if the picture bombs, he gets the blame, not me.
Ernest Borgnine
We’ve been talking about this for a good while, the immorality of drones, dropping bombs on innocent people. It’s been over 200 children so far. These are war crimes.
Cornel West
We have to build bridges that are stronger than the bombs that other people might throw
Eboo Patel
You don’t have to signal a social conscience by looking like a frump. Lace knickers won’t hasten the holocaust, you can ban the bomb in a feather boa just as well as without, and a mild interest in the length of hemlines doesn’t necessarily disqualify you from reading Das Kapital and agreeing with every word.
Elizabeth Bibesco
The atomic bomb embodies the results of a combination genius and patience as remarkable as any in the history of mankind.
Bertrand Russell
Let us not use bombs and guns to overcome the world. Let us use love and compassion. Peace begins with a smile-smile five times a day at someone you don’t really want to smile at at all-do it for peace. So let us radiate peace…and extinguish in the world and in the hearts of all men all hatred and love for power.
Mother Teresa
People should have literary and cultural taste and should not bomb hotels.
Upamanyu Chatterjee
If any job should give you a company car, it’s the car bomb business.
Jay Leno
The use of the atomic bomb, with its indiscriminate killing of women and children, revolts my soul.
Herbert Hoover
The weapons of the positive revolution are not bullets and bombs but simple human perceptions. Bullets and bombs may offer physical power but eventually will only work if they change perceptions and values. Why not go the direct route and work with perceptions and values?
Edward de Bono
The atom bombs are piling up in the factories, the police are prowling through the cities, the lies are streaming from the loudspeakers, but the earth is still going round the sun.
George Orwell
We know North Korea has the plutonium that can go into the bomb.
Mohamed ElBaradei
If surrender could have been brought about in May, 1945, or even in June or July, before the entrance of Soviet Russia into the [Pacific] war and the use of the atomic bomb, the world would have been the gainer.
Joseph Grew
We are living in a world of fear. The life of man today is corroded and made bitter by fear. Fear of the future, fear of the hydrogen bomb, fear of ideologies. Perhaps this fear is a greater danger than the danger itself, because it is fear which drives men to act foolishly, to act thoughtlessly, to act dangerously…
Sukarno
This is a comment on fear. Today it’s like ‘They’re going to bomb the New York subway and there’s the avian flu and 50 million of us are going to die.’ We wanted to make fun of that fear-based culture we’ve been plunged into. And Halloweens the perfect metaphor for fear.
Adam Gollner
Shut up. What did you ask me, anyway?” – Sundown “Really? Good thing I didn’t tell you to duck a bomb.” – Sasha
Sherrilyn Kenyon
You have to take the chance to bomb and disappoint audiences.
Sarah Silverman
The bulldozer and not the atomic bomb may turn out to be the most destructive invention of the 20th century.
Philip Shabecoff
The word “now” is like a bomb through the window, and it ticks.
Arthur Miller
Iran was nearing completion of a new reactor capable of producing plutonium for a bomb.
Barack Obama
I looked for it [heavy hydrogen, deuterium] because I thought it should exist. I didn’t know it would have industrial applications or be the basic for the most powerful weapon ever known [the nuclear bomb] … I thought maybe my discovery might have the practical value of, say, neon in neon signs.
Harold Urey
Her Majesty’s government is engaging not merely in Orwellian Newspeak but in self-defeating Orwellian Newspeak. The broader message it sends is that ours is a weak culture so unconfident and insecure that if you bomb us and kill us our first urge is to find a way to flatter and apologize to you.
Mark Steyn
Putin drops bombs. We drop leaflets.
Ryan Zinke
I lose my temper, but it’s all over in a minute,” said the student. “So is the hydrogen bomb,” I replied. “But think of the damage it produces!
George Sweeting
A boycott is, inherently, a blunt instrument. It is an imperfect weapon, a carpet bomb, when all involved would prefer a surgical strike.
Conor Oberst
Stephon Marbury is the bomb. He is going to be so good.
Tim Duncan
I could buy that she would murder me in a fit of rage, poison me out of flaming jealousy, or bomb my car out of sheer, stubborn pique. But she would never do it and feel nothing.
Jim Butcher
We are not afraid of nuclear weapons. The point is that if we had in fact wanted to build a nuclear bomb, we are brave enough to say that we want it. But we never do that.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
The atomic bomb made the prospect of future war unendurable. It has led us up those last few steps to the mountain pass; and beyond there is a different country.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
It was kind of ridiculous to carry it up to a certain point and then drop the ball or the bomb, like quitting the band right after we had signed to Virgin.
Elliott Smith
Often in evolutionary processes a species must adapt to new conditions in order to survive. Today the atomic bomb has altered profoundly the nature of the world as we know it, and the human race consequently finds itself in a new habitat to which it must adapt its thinking.
Albert Einstein
Lincoln said, ‘With malice toward none, with charity to all.’ Nowadays they say, ‘Think the way I do or I’ll bomb the daylights outta you.’
Lionel Barrymore
What was the invasion of South Vietnam, for example, in 1962, when Kennedy sent the Air Force to bomb South Vietnam and start chemical warfare? That’s aggression.
Noam Chomsky
One has to watch out for engineers. They begin with the sewing machine and end up with the atomic bomb.
Marcel Pagnol
What prompted me to make these pictures [of bomb-cratered roads] was the impression that the ground was ripped by the shock, that it was swallowing itself.
Sophie Ristelhueber
Ideas are the factors that lift civilization. They create revolutions. There is more dynamite in an idea than in many bombs.
John H. Vincent
If we’re going to get this country out of its current energy situation, we can’t just conserve our way out. We can’t just drill our way out. We can’t bomb our way out. We’re going to do it the old-fashioned, American way. We’re going to invent our way out, working together.
Donald Sadoway
The terrorism is not in the bombs, in your hands; the terrorism is in your unconscious.
Rajneesh
Any time bombs are used to target civilians it is an act of terror.
Barack Obama
Bombs fall and wipe out civilization as we know it, two things come up out of the ashes: roaches and F-150s.
James Sallis
We Americans claim to be a peace-loving people. We hate bloodshed; we are opposed to violence. Yet we go into spasms of joy over the possibility of projecting dynamite bombs from flying machines upon helpless citizens.
Emma Goldman
The odds against there being a bomb on a plane are a million to one, and against two bombs a million times a million to one. Next time you fly, cut the odds and take a bomb.
Benny Hill
Coronation: The ceremony of investing a sovereign with the outward and visible signs of his divine right to be blown skyhigh with a dynamite bomb.
Ambrose Bierce
I had volunteered for the Air Force and was an enthusiastic bombardier. While dropping bombs on Europe, I generally didn’t understand what I was doing.
Howard Zinn
This is a powerful message from our government: we will not be intimidated by bombs; we will not be intimidated by poison; this is America, if you’re a violent, paranoid lunatic, you must use a gun!
Bill Maher
Sometimes you just can’t get rid of a bomb!
Adam West
Bombs do not choose. They will hit everything.
Nikita Khrushchev
I was forced to be political because I had bombs falling on me as a child in Tehran.
Shervin Pishevar
Show me a country where the bombs had to fallShow me the ruins of buildings so tallAnd I’ll show you a young landWith many reasons whyThere but for fortune, go you or IYou or I.
