Bombs

Famous quotes containing the word bombs:

    We cannot be any stronger in our foreign policy—for all the bombs and guns we may heap up in our arsenals—than we are in the spirit which rules inside the country. Foreign policy, like a river, cannot rise above its source.
    Adlai Stevenson (1900–1965)

    The greatest danger of bombs is in the explosion of stupidity that they provoke.
    Octave Mirbeau (1850–1917)

    Today the discredit of words is very great. Most of the time the media transmit lies. In the face of an intolerable world, words appear to change very little. State power has become congenitally deaf, which is why—but the editorialists forget it—terrorists are reduced to bombs and hijacking.
    John Berger (b. 1926)
