Famous quotes containing the word bombs:

    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)

    Civilization is maintained by a very few people in a small number of places and we need only some bombs and a few prisons to blot it out altogether.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)

    Hear the soft bombs of dust
    It bursts against us at the chimney mouth,
    And at the eaves. I like it from inside
    More than I shall out in it. But the horses
    Are rested and it’s time to say Good-night,
    And let you get to bed again,
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
