Atomic Bomb quotes by J. Robert Oppenheimer
#1. But when you come right down to it, the reason that we did this job is because it was an organic necessity. If you are a scientist you cannot stop such a thing. If you are a scientist you believe that it is good to find out how the world works; that it is good to find out what the realities are; that it is good to turn over to mankind at large the greatest possible power to control the world and to deal with it according to its lights and values. Regarding the atomic bomb project. #Quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer
Atomic Bomb quotes by Albert Einstein
#2. 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. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Atomic Bomb quotes by Richard A. Muller
#3. THIS book is radioactive. And so are you. Unless you are dead, in which case we can tell how long ago you died by how much of your radioactivity is left. That's what radiocarbon dating is - the measurement of the reduction of radioactivity of old bones to deduce the time of death. Alcohol is radioactive too - at least the kind we drink. Rubbing alcohol usually isn't, unless it was made organically - that is, from wood. In fact, the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tests wine, gin, whiskey, and vodka for radioactivity. A fifth of whiskey must emit at least 400 beta rays every minute or the drink is considered unfit for human consumption. Biofuels are radioactive. Fossil fuels are not. Of those killed by the Hiroshima atomic bomb, the best estimate is that fewer than 2% died of radiation-induced cancer. These statements are all true. They are not even disputed, at least by experts. Yet they surprise most people. #Quote by Richard A. Muller
Atomic Bomb quotes by Matt Haig
#4. As well as religion, human history is full of depressing things like colonisation, disease, racism, sexism, homophobia, class snobbery, environmental destruction, slavery, totalitarianism, military dictatorships, inventions of things which they have no idea how to handle (the atomic bomb, the Internet, the semi-colon), the victimisation of clever people, the worshipping of idiotic people, boredom, despair, periodic collapses, and catastrophes within the psychic landscape. #Quote by Matt Haig
Atomic Bomb quotes by Jonathan Glover
#5. A woman who was a schoolgirl at Hiroshima asked, "Those scientists who invented the atomic bomb, what did they think would happen if they dropped it? #Quote by Jonathan Glover
Atomic Bomb quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#6. The content or message of any particular medium has about as much importance as the stenciling on the casing of an atomic bomb. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Atomic Bomb quotes by Gertrude Stein
#7. They think they are interested about the atomic bomb but they really are not not any more than I am. Really not. They may be a little scared, I am not so scared, there is so much to be scared of so what is the use of bothering to be scared, and if you are not scared the atomic bomb is not interesting.
Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense. They listen so much that they forget to be natural. This is a nice story. #Quote by Gertrude Stein
Atomic Bomb quotes by Damir Dokic
#8. I have thought about dropping an atomic bomb on Sydney but I wouldn't gain anything from it. #Quote by Damir Dokic
Atomic Bomb quotes by Joachim Kahl
#9. In the name of Christ, Protestant pastors belong to fascist groups. In the name of Christ, Catholic bishops sympathise with the aims of neo-Nazis. As a Christian, it is possible to be either a loyal communist, or a fanatical anti-communist. As a Christian, it is possible to preach pacifism or to give one's blessing to the production and the use of the atomic bomb. #Quote by Joachim Kahl
Atomic Bomb quotes by Janet Fitch
#10. Most people use twenty verbs to describe everything from a run in their stocking to the explosion of an atomic bomb. #Quote by Janet Fitch
Atomic Bomb quotes by Jo Nesbo
#11. We're capable of understanding that someone has to drop an atomic bomb on a town of innocent civilians, but not that others have to cut up prostitutes who spread disease and moral depravity in the slums of London. Hence we call the former realism and the latter madness. #Quote by Jo Nesbo
Atomic Bomb quotes by Steve Nguyen
#12. 'Hibakusha' is an animated docu-drama that Choz Belen and I are directing, and it will take you through the earliest memories of a Hiroshima atomic bomb survivor named Kaz Suyeishi. #Quote by Steve Nguyen
Atomic Bomb quotes by Debasish Mridha
#13. The difference between the power of love and the power of atomic bomb is that atomic bomb has a limit. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Atomic Bomb quotes by Olivia
#14. 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. #Quote by Olivia
Atomic Bomb quotes by Chaim Potok
#15. My wife believes in it not one whit, but is scrupulous in its observance," said Charles Leiden, sipping from his glass. "A curious state of affairs, don't you think? We are kosher, Fermi probably attends synagogue, Albert believed in Spinoza's God and helped raise money for Israel, Teller may end up teaching in a Jewish parochial school one day, Szilard has the soul of a Jewish prophet. And we tinker with light and atomic bombs, with the energy of the universe. Do you wonder that the world doesn't know what to make of its Jews? No one is on more familiar terms with the heart of the insanity in the universe than is the Jew, and no one is more frenetic and untidy in the search for the an answer. #Quote by Chaim Potok
Atomic Bomb quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#16. Behind this monstrous shield, liberal democracy and the free market managed to hold out in their last bastions, and Westerners could enjoy sex, drugs and rock and roll, as well as washing machines, refrigerators and televisions. Without nukes, there would have been no Woodstock, no Beatles and no overflowing supermarkets. But in the mid-1970s it seemed that nuclear weapons notwithstanding, the future belonged to socialism. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Atomic Bomb quotes by Jonathan Glover
#17. o In the decision to use the bomb the base line had shifted down during the moral slide from the blockade to the area bombing of Germany and to the fire-bombing of Japan. Predictably one member of Stimson's committee made the point that the 'number of people that would be killed by the bomb would not be greater in general magnitude than the number already killed in fire raids'. #Quote by Jonathan Glover
Atomic Bomb quotes by E.B. White
#18. We grow tyrannical fighting tyranny ... The most alarming spectacle today is not the spectacle of the atomic bomb in an unfederated world, it is the spectacle of the Americans beginning to accept the device of loyalty oaths and witch hunts, beginning to call anybody they don't like a Communist. #Quote by E.B. White
Atomic Bomb quotes by Gustav Heinrich Ralph Von Koenigswald
#19. It is the large brain capacity which allows man to live as a human being, enjoy taxes, canned salmon, television, and the atomic bomb. #Quote by Gustav Heinrich Ralph Von Koenigswald
Atomic Bomb quotes by Brandon Flowers
#20. All that I wanted was a little touch,
A little tenderness and truth, I didn't ask for much #Quote by Brandon Flowers
Atomic Bomb quotes by Howard Zinn
#21. What struck me as I began to study history was how nationalist fervor
inculcated from childhood on by pledges of allegiance, national anthems, flags waving and rhetoric blowing
permeated the educational systems of all countries, including our own. I wonder now how the foreign policies of the United States would look if we wiped out the national boundaries of the world, at least in our minds, and thought of all children everywhere as our own. Then we could never drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, or napalm on Vietnam, or wage war anywhere, because wars, especially in our time, are always wars against children, indeed our children. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Atomic Bomb quotes by Mao Zedong
#22. All the reputedly powerful reactionaries are merely paper tigers. The reason is that they are divorced from the people. Look! Was not Hitler a paper tiger? Was Hitler not overthrown? U.S. imperialism has not yet been overthrown and it has the atomic bomb. I believe it also will be overthrown. It, too, is a paper tiger. #Quote by Mao Zedong
Atomic Bomb quotes by Iccho Itoh
#23. The time has come for those nations that rely on the force of nuclear armaments to respectfully heed the voices of peace-loving people, not least the atomic bomb survivors, to strive in good faith for nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, and to advance towards the complete abolishment of all such weapons. #Quote by Iccho Itoh
Atomic Bomb quotes by David Zindell
#24. We walk the brink of racial suicide because we were smart enough to make atomic bombs and stupid enough to use them. #Quote by David Zindell
Atomic Bomb quotes by Annie Jacobsen
#25. In 1957, with the arms race in full swing, the Department of Defense had decided it was just a matter of time before an airplane transporting an atomic bomb would crash on American soil, unleashing a radioactive disaster the likes of which the world had never seen. #Quote by Annie Jacobsen
Atomic Bomb quotes by Albert Einstein
#26. 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. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Atomic Bomb quotes by Edward Teller
#27. The scientist is not responsible for the laws of nature. It is his job to find out how these laws operate. It is the scientist's job to find the ways in which these laws can serve the human will. However, it is not the scientist's job to determine whether a hydrogen bomb should be constructed, whether it should be used, or how it should be used. This responsibility rests with the American people and with their chosen representatives. #Quote by Edward Teller
Atomic Bomb quotes by Winston Churchill
#28. On 17th July there came to us at Potsdam the eagerly-awaited news of the trial of the atomic bomb in the [New] Mexican desert. Success beyond all dreams crowded this sombre, magnificent venture of our American allies. The detailed reports ... could leave no doubt in the minds of the very few who were informed, that we were in the presence of a new factor in human affairs, and possessed of powers which were irresistible. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Atomic Bomb quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#29. So far as I can see, the atomic bomb has deadened the finest feeling that has sustained for ages. There used to be so-called laws of war, which made it tolerable. Now we know the truth. War knows no law except that of might. The atomic bomb brought an empty victory but it resulted for the time being in destroying the soul of Japan. What has happened to the soul of the destroying nation is yet too early to see ... #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Atomic Bomb quotes by Emilio G. Segre
#30. In an enterprise such as the building of the atomic bomb the difference between ideas, hopes, suggestions and theoretical calculations, and solid numbers based on measurement, is paramount. All the committees, the politicking and the plans would have come to naught if a few unpredictable nuclear cross sections had been different from what they are by a factor of two. #Quote by Emilio G. Segre
Atomic Bomb quotes by Henry H. Arnold
#31. The Japanese position was hopeless even before the first atomic bomb fell because the Japanese had lost control of their own air. #Quote by Henry H. Arnold
Atomic Bomb quotes by Nazim Hikmet
#32. I come and stand at every door
But none can hear my silent tread
I knock and yet remain unseen
For I am dead for I am dead

I'm only seven though I died
In Hiroshima long ago
I'm seven now as I was then
When children die they do not grow

My hair was scorched by swirling flame
My eyes grew dim my eyes grew blind
Death came and turned my bones to dust
And that was scattered by the wind

I need no fruit I need no rice
I need no sweets nor even bread
I ask for nothing for myself
For I am dead for I am dead

All that I need is that for peace
You fight today you fight today
So that the children of this world
Can live and grow and laugh and play

- The Girl Child #Quote by Nazim Hikmet
Atomic Bomb quotes by Fred Hoyle
#33. I am an atheist, but as far as blowing up the world in a nuclear war goes, I tell them not to worry. #Quote by Fred Hoyle
Atomic Bomb quotes by Harry S. Truman
#34. When you have to deal with a beast, you have to treat him as a beast. It is most regrettable but nevertheless true. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Atomic Bomb quotes by Milan Kundera
#35. Keep this in mind: it is our religion to praise life. The word "life" is the king of words. The king­word surrounded by other grand words. The word "adventure"! The word "future"! And the word "hope"! By the way, do you know the code name for the atomic bomb they dropped on Hiroshima? "Little Boy"! That's a genius, the fellow who invented that code! They couldn't have dreamed up a better one. Little boy, kid, tyke, tot - there's no word that's more tender, more touching, more loaded with future. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Atomic Bomb quotes by Raul Castro
#36. My dream is to drop three atomic bombs on New York City. #Quote by Raul Castro
Atomic Bomb quotes by Maxwell Igan
#37. When the first atomic bomb exploded in New Mexico, the desert sand turned to fused green glass. This fact, according to the magazine Free World, has given certain archaeologists a turn. They have been digging in the ancient Euphrates Valley and have uncovered a layer of agrarian culture 8,000 years old, and a layer of herdsman culture much older, and a still older caveman culture. Recently, they reached another layer, a layer of fused green glass #Quote by Maxwell Igan
Atomic Bomb quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#38. [on the atomic bomb] It is not enough to take this weapon out of the hands of soldiers. It must be put into the hands of those who will know how to strip its military casing and adapt it to the arts of peace. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Atomic Bomb quotes by Chester W. Nimitz
#39. The Japanese had, in fact, already sued for peace. The atomic bomb played no decisive part, from a purely military point of view, in the defeat of Japan. #Quote by Chester W. Nimitz
Atomic Bomb quotes by Edward Steichen
#40. The boy and girl going hand in hand through a meadow; the mother washing her baby; the sweet simple things in life. We have almost lost track of them. On the one side, we over-intellectualize everything; on the other hand, we are over-mechanized. We can understand the danger of the atomic bomb, but the danger of our misunderstanding the meaning of life is much more serious. #Quote by Edward Steichen
Atomic Bomb quotes by Auliq Ice
#41. When love is new, it's brighter than the sun and 30 times as great as the force of the atomic bomb dropped and felt from your heart, but to some people it will slowly fade but to me it will always be the same. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Atomic Bomb quotes by Werner Heisenberg
#42. The German physicists knew at least so much about the manufacture and construction of atomic bombs that it was clear to them that the manufacture of bombs in Germany could not succeed during the war. For this reason, they were spared the moral decision whether they should make an atomic bomb, and they had only worked on the uranium engine. #Quote by Werner Heisenberg
Atomic Bomb quotes by Will Leamon
#43. A good thing? Or a strong omen ... Only time would tell what these newfangled neutrons and fission reactions would give to our ever-changing world.In all probability,this new scientific birth would change all of our lives forever and perhaps end the brutal war we were now engaged in? #Quote by Will Leamon
Atomic Bomb quotes by Herbert Hoover
#44. The use of the atomic bomb, with its indiscriminate killing of women and children, revolts my soul. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
Atomic Bomb quotes by Richard Rhodes
#45. Any account of science which does not explicitly describe it as something we believe in is essentially incomplete and a false pretense. It amounts to a claim that science is essentially different from and superior to all human beliefs that are not scientific statements
and this is untrue. #Quote by Richard Rhodes
Atomic Bomb quotes by Neal Stephenson
#46. Our opponent is an alien starship packed with atomic bombs," I said. "We have a protractor. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Atomic Bomb quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#47. Men of today seem to feel more acutely than ever the paradox of their condition. They know themselves to be the supreme end to which all action should be subordinated, but the exigencies of action force them to treat one another as instruments or obstacles, as means. The more widespread their mastery of the world, the more they find themselves crushed by uncontrollable forces. Though they are masters of the atomic bomb, yet it is created only to destroy them. Each one has the incomparable taste in his mouth of his own life, and yet each feels himself more insignificant than an insect within the immense collectivity whose limits are one with the earth's. Perhaps in no other age have they manifested their grandeur more brilliantly, and in no other age has this grandeur been so horribly flouted. In spite of so many stubborn lies, at every moment, at every opportunity, the truth comes to light, the truth of life and death, of my solitude and my bond with the world, of my freedom and my servitude, of the insignificance and the sovereign importance of each man and all men. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Atomic Bomb quotes by George Wald
#48. The only use for an atomic bomb is to keep somebody else from using one. #Quote by George Wald
Atomic Bomb quotes by John W. Dower
#49. What the diary does not reveal, for it stops too soon, is the appalling fact that from late 1945 until 1952 Japanese medical researchers were prohibited by U.S. occupation authorities from publishing scientific articles on the effects of the atomic bombs. #Quote by John W. Dower
Atomic Bomb quotes by D.K. Holm
#50. Like the atomic bomb, it's there; like the bomb, the temptation
will always exist to use it.There can no longer be a world
without the atomic bomb; there can no longer be a world
without violent movies. #Quote by D.K. Holm
Atomic Bomb quotes by Robert Leckie
#51. And now to that Victim whose Sign rose above the world two thousand years ago, to be menaced now by that other sign now rising, I say a prayer of contrition. I, whom you have seen as irreverent and irreligious, now pray in the name of Chuckler and Hoosier and Runner, in the name of Smoothface, Gentlemen, Amish, and Oakstump, Ivy-League and Big-Picture, in the name of all those who suffered in the jungles and on the beaches, from Anzio to Normandy--and in the name of the immolated: of Texan, Rutherford, Chicken, Loudmouth, of the Artist and White-Man, Souvenirs and Racehorse, Dreadnought and Commando--of all these and the others, dear Father, forgive us for that awful cloud. #Quote by Robert Leckie
Atomic Bomb quotes by Gary D. Schmidt
#52. I lit a candle in a Catholic church for the first time that afternoon. Me, a Presbyterian. I lit a candle in the warm, dark, waxy-smelling air of Saint Adelbert's. I put it beside the one that Mrs. Baker lit. I don't know what she prayed for, but I prayed that no atomic bomb would ever drop on Camillo Junior High or the Quaker meetinghouse or the old jail or Temple Emmanuel or Hicks Park or Saint Paul's Episcopal School or Saint Adelbert's. I prayed for Lieutenant Baker, missing in action somewhere in the jungles of Vietnam near Khesanh. I prayed for Danny Hupfer, sweating it out in Hebrew school right then. I prayed for my sister, driving in a yellow bug toward California - or maybe she was there already, trying to find herself. And I hoped that it was okay to pray for a bunch of things with one candle. #Quote by Gary D. Schmidt
Atomic Bomb quotes by Henry L. Stimson
#53. 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. #Quote by Henry L. Stimson
Atomic Bomb quotes by Richard Rhodes
#54. [Chemist Michael] Polanyi found one other necessary requirement for full initiation into science: Belief. If science has become the orthodoxy of the West, individuals are nevertheless still free to take it or leave it, in whole or in part; believers in astrology, Marxism and virgin birth abound. But no one can become a scientist unless he presumes that the scientific doctrine and method are fundamentally sound and that their ultimate premises can be unquestionably accepted. #Quote by Richard Rhodes
Atomic Bomb quotes by Harry S. Truman
#55. The atomic bomb is too dangerous to be loose in a lawless world. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Atomic Bomb quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#56. We have genuflected before the god of science only to find that it has given us the atomic bomb, producing fears and anxieties that science can never mitigate. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Atomic Bomb quotes by Ernest Bevin
#57. There has been great excitement at the prospect that this atomic bomb or atomic energy is likely to produce great industrial energy very quickly, I do not believe it at all. #Quote by Ernest Bevin
Atomic Bomb quotes by Steve Sheinkin
#58. In the end, this is a difficult story to sum up. The making of the atomic bomb is one of history's most amazing examples of teamwork and genius and poise under pressure. But it's also the story of how humans created a weapon capable of wiping our species off the planet. It's a story with no end in sight.
And, like it or not, you're in it. #Quote by Steve Sheinkin
Atomic Bomb quotes by Haruki Murakami
#59. Somehow the world survived the Nazis, the atomic bomb, and modern music #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Atomic Bomb quotes by John Cheever
#60. Long ago when they first invented the atomic bomb people used to worry about its going off and killing everybody, but they didn't know that mankind has enough dynamite right in his guts to tear the fucking plant to pieces. #Quote by John Cheever
Atomic Bomb quotes by Philip Morrison
#61. My piece in One World or None was the description of the effect of a single atomic bomb on New York City. #Quote by Philip Morrison
Atomic Bomb quotes by Ben  Rhodes
#62. The whole scene put the unpleasantness of the last few weeks into some perspective, but it also fed a sense of anger at the story I was caught up in back in Washington. The notion that there is no room for complexity: Ho Chi Minh was a Communist, not a nationalist. We could not have dropped the atomic bomb on something other than a large city. There are no Iranian moderates. It was as if simply recognizing complexities and context was tantamount to pulling a thread that could cause some American narrative to unravel. The faces of the people lining these streets told a different story. Surely what made America great to them was not the fact that we'd dropped the bomb; it was the ideal associated with who we were, the fact that we had a president who was willing to acknowledge difficult histories and show respect for different people. Our constant struggle to improve ourselves and our country while seeking guidance from the story of our founding values - that is what makes America great. #Quote by Ben Rhodes
Atomic Bomb quotes by Linda Hoaglund
#63. Because my parents were American missionaries who sent me to public schools in rural Japan, I had to confront Hiroshima as a child. I was in the fourth grade - the only American in my class - when our teacher wrote the words "America" and "Atomic Bomb" in white chalk on the blackboard. All forty Japanese children turned around to stare at me. My country had done something unforgivable and I had to take responsibility for it, all by myself. I desperately wanted to dig a hole under my desk, to escape my classmates' mute disbelief and never have to face them again. #Quote by Linda Hoaglund
Atomic Bomb quotes by Norman Cousins
#64. 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. #Quote by Norman Cousins
Atomic Bomb quotes by Mordechai Vanunu
#65. My job was to produce plutonium that was used for atomic bomb. #Quote by Mordechai Vanunu
Atomic Bomb quotes by Iccho Itoh
#66. The atomic bomb survivors ... cannot wait another 50 years. Their highest hope is to see the abolition of nuclear weapons within their own lifetime. It is a steep climb to this goal, but one from which we must never relent. #Quote by Iccho Itoh
Atomic Bomb quotes by Gunter Grass
#67. How do we prevent Iran developing an atomic bomb, when, on the American side, dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki is not recognised as a war crime? #Quote by Gunter Grass
Atomic Bomb quotes by John Mellencamp
#68. I think the Internet is the most dangerous thing invented since the atomic bomb, #Quote by John Mellencamp
Atomic Bomb quotes by Erin Bow
#69. Did you know, the man who invented the atomic bomb once said that keeping peace through deterrence was like keeping two scorpions in one bottle? You can picture that, right? They know they can't sting without getting stung. They can't kill without getting killed. And you'd think that would stop them." He gave the book another boot, and it flipped closed with a snick. "But it doesn't." He looked up and his eyes were the color of Cherenkov radiation, the color of an orbital weapon. "You've got a bit of nerve, little scorpion. All I did was invent the bottle. #Quote by Erin Bow
Atomic Bomb quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#70. Against the dark background of the atomic bomb, the United States does not wish merely to present strength, but also the desire and the hope for peace. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Atomic Bomb quotes by Scott Horton
#71. The bomb was 'born secret,' as Daniel Patrick Moynihan said. The atomic bomb marked a powerful turning point in America's stewardship of national security affairs. After its arrival, Garry Willis argues, 'the power of secrecy that enveloped the Bomb became a model for the planning or execution of Anything Important, as guarded by Important People.' But the first stop was a radical restructuring of the government itself, to account for the development and expansion of a nuclear arsenal requiring special means, staffs, oversight, and a stringent and novel regime of peacetime secrecy. The national security state was born. #Quote by Scott Horton
Atomic Bomb quotes by Philip Roth
#72. Though I'd never forgotten Alan, I hadn't uttered his name aloud in the many years since he'd died, back in that decade when it seemed that the greatest menaces on earth were war, the atomic bomb, and polio. #Quote by Philip Roth
Atomic Bomb quotes by Dennis Overbye
#73. 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. #Quote by Dennis Overbye
Atomic Bomb quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#74. The atomic bomb certainly is the most powerful of all weapons, but it is conclusively powerful and effective only in the hands of the nation which controls the sky. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Atomic Bomb quotes by Ernest Lawrence
#75. The atomic bombs will surely shorten the war, and let us hope that they will effectively end war as a possibility in human affairs. #Quote by Ernest Lawrence
Atomic Bomb quotes by Cus D'Amato
#76. Mike's (Tyson) punch is like an atomic bomb in that it is relative to nature. Both have no value unless you have a means of conveying it to the target. He is boxing-smart. #Quote by Cus D'Amato
Atomic Bomb quotes by Phyllis Schlafly
#77. The atomic bomb is a marvelous gift that was given to our country by a wise God. #Quote by Phyllis Schlafly
Atomic Bomb quotes by Tom Udall
#78. 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. #Quote by Tom Udall
Atomic Bomb quotes by Enrico Fermi
#79. The fact that no limits exist to the destructiveness of this weapon [the 'Super', i.e. the hydrogen bomb] makes its very existence and the knowledge of its construction a danger to humanity as a whole. It is necessarily an evil thing considered in any light. For these reasons, we believe it important for the President of the United States to tell the American public and the world what we think is wrong on fundamental ethical principles to initiate the development of such a weapon. #Quote by Enrico Fermi
Atomic Bomb quotes by Wilfred Burchett
#80. In Hiroshima, thirty days after the first atomic bomb destroyed the city and shook the world, people are still dying, mysteriously and horribly-people who were uninjured in the cataclysm from an unknown something which I can only describe as the atomic plague. #Quote by Wilfred Burchett
Atomic Bomb quotes by Malcolm Forbes
#81. It is a damned sight easier to start wars than to end them. This truth has been stated for as long and as often as it has been ignored. High time and thank God, we are at least moving toward de-escalation in Vietnam. The road to extrication will be long, painful, bitter. But it must be trod. We are so bogged down in Vietnam that we cannot respond effectively anywhere else in the world to a military power play except through atomic bombardment. #Quote by Malcolm Forbes
Atomic Bomb quotes by Gregory Benford
#82. In early 1945 Berg did go to Switzerland, as depicted here a bit earlier, to kill Heisenberg if necessary. Sitting in the front row of Heisenberg's seminar, he determined that the Germans were nowhere near their goal, so he complimented Heisenberg on his speech about field theory and walked him back to his hotel. Moe Berg's report was distributed to Britain's prime minister, Winston Churchill, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and key figures in the team developing the atomic bomb. Roosevelt responded: "Give my regards to the catcher." Werner #Quote by Gregory Benford
Atomic Bomb quotes by Stovall Weems
#83. I believe the power of fasting as it relates to prayer is the spiritual atomic bomb that our Lord has given us to destroy the strongholds of evil and usher in a great revival and spiritual harvest around the world. - BILL BRIGHT #Quote by Stovall Weems
Atomic Bomb quotes by Albert Einstein
#84. In the shadow of the atomic bomb it has become even more apparent that all men are, indeed, brothers. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Atomic Bomb quotes by Eric Schlosser
#85. Support for a first strike extended far beyond the upper ranks of the U.S. military. Bertrand Russell - the British philosopher and pacifist, imprisoned for his opposition to the First World War - urged the western democracies to attack the Soviet Union before it got an atomic bomb. Russell acknowledged that a nuclear strike on the Soviets would be horrible, but "anything is better than submission." Winston Churchill agreed, proposing that the Soviets be given an ultimatum: withdraw your troops from Germany, or see your cities destroyed. Even Hamilton Holt, lover of peace, crusader for world government, lifelong advocate of settling disputes through mediation and diplomacy and mutual understanding, no longer believed that sort of approach would work. Nuclear weapons had changed everything, and the Soviet Union couldn't be trusted. Any nation that rejected U.N. control of atomic energy, Holt said, "should be wiped off the face of the earth with atomic bombs. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
Atomic Bomb quotes by Annie Jacobsen
#86. To understand how black projects began, and how they continue to function today, one must start with the creation of the atomic bomb. The men who ran the Manhattan Project wrote the rules about black operations. The atomic bomb was the mother of all black projects, and it is the parent from which all black operations have sprung. #Quote by Annie Jacobsen
Atomic Bomb quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#87. Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Atomic Bomb quotes by Koji Nakanishi
#88. The ginkgo tree is from the era of dinosaurs, but while the dinosaur has been extinguished, the modern ginkgo has not changed. After the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, the ginkgo was the first tree that came up. It's amazing. #Quote by Koji Nakanishi
Atomic Bomb quotes by Edward Teller
#89. Knowing he [Bob Serber] was going to the [first atom bomb] test, I asked him how he planned to deal with the danger of rattlesnakes. He said, 'I'll take along a bottle of whiskey.' ... I ended by asking, 'What would you do about those possibilities [of what unknown phenomena might cause a nuclear explosion to propagate in the atmosphere]?'

Atomic Bomb quotes by John Hersey
#90. He was the only person making his way into the city; he met hundreds and hundreds who were fleeing, and every one of them seemed to be hurt in some way. The eyebrows of some were burned off and skin hung from their faces and hands. Others, because of pain, held their arms up as if carrying something in both hands. Some were vomiting as they walked. Many were naked or in shreds of clothing. On some undressed bodies, the burns had made patterns - of undershirt straps and suspenders and, on the skin of some women (since white repelled the heat from the bomb and dark clothes absorbed it and conducted it to the skin), the shapes of flowers they had had on their kimonos. Many, although injured themselves, supported relatives who were worse off. Almost all had their heads bowed, looked straight ahead, were silent, and showed no expression whatsoever. #Quote by John Hersey
Atomic Bomb quotes by Kresley Cole
#91. Just reason it out. What are the pros and cons with her?"
"Reason! Always with your bloody reason. Do you know what I'm going to enjoy? When you meet your demoness and she shakes to tell your unflappable demeanor. I'm going to laugh when you turn enraged, horns flaring ramrod straight every time she saunters by."
"Noted. Now, begin with the pros."
"Verra well. She's clever, she's brave, and, by all the gods, she's graced in form. And I'm no' going to apologize for being a typical male - I do want the sexiest female I've ever laid eyes on to be mine. I'll admit that I want her on my arm and in my bed. And I want to be smug over having her desire me, too."
"The cons . . ."
"Right back to the witchery. Would you no' be a tad unnerved if your female could unleash the force of an atomic bomb whenever she got nettled with you?"
Rydstrom nodded in commiseration, then said, "Take away the fact that she's a witch - "
"I will be taking away that fact," Bowe interrupted. "Practicing witchcraft is voluntary. I could see to it that she never - "
Out of the blue, a bee stung him. "Damn it," he muttered, slapping it away, then continued, "If I snatched her away from her coven and immersed her with the Lykae - "
Another sting. "Son of a bitch!"
When the odd breeze blew once more, Bowe narrowed his eyes. "The witch." He gazed up at the sky and all around him. "Playing with me again! I'll turn her over my knee for this. #Quote by Kresley Cole
Atomic Bomb quotes by Barney Ross
#92. After the atomic bombs were dropped, the war ended and we went into Tokyo Bay with the rest of the fleet, the Missouri and the rest of them, while they signed the terms of surrender that ended the war. #Quote by Barney Ross
Atomic Bomb quotes by James Frey
#93. We know have the power of God in many ways: the atomic bomb, the ability to create life in a test tube, cloning, artificial intelligence. #Quote by James Frey
Atomic Bomb quotes by Tom Waits
#94. The sight of the first woman in the minimal two-piece was as explosive as the detonation of the atomic bomb by the U.S. at Bikini Island in the Marshall Isles, hence the naming of the bikini. #Quote by Tom Waits
Atomic Bomb quotes by Oliver Stone
#95. This myth that America has this atomic bomb that makes us right, it makes us good, it makes us set the agenda for the world. Everywhere, we can go global, we determine. #Quote by Oliver Stone
Atomic Bomb quotes by Howard Zinn
#96. New York Times military analyst Hanson Baldwin wrote, shortly after the war:

The enemy, in a military sense, was in a hopeless strategic position by the time the Potsdam demand for unconditional surrender was made on July 26.
Such then, was the situation when we wiped out Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Need we have done it? No one can, of course, be positive, but the answer is almost certainly negative. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Atomic Bomb quotes by Craig Nelson
#97. Trinity's witnesses responded just as those to Apollo 11 would, as J. Robert Oppenheimer remembered: "We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent." Oppenheimer later said the he beheld his radiant blooming cloud and thought of Hindu scripture: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." Aloud, however, the physicist made the ultimate engineer comment: "It worked. #Quote by Craig Nelson
Atomic Bomb quotes by Frederick Soddy
#98. 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. #Quote by Frederick Soddy
Atomic Bomb quotes by William Shawcross
#99. Weapons of mass destruction are the greatest threat to life on earth. Biological weapons are often called the poor man's atomic bomb. Saddam Hussein is the ruler who has for decades been making the most determined and diabolical illegal effort to acquire them. #Quote by William Shawcross
Atomic Bomb quotes by Philip Shabecoff
#100. The bulldozer and not the atomic bomb may turn out to be the most destructive invention of the 20th century. #Quote by Philip Shabecoff
Atomic Bomb quotes by Albert Einstein
#101. Had I known that the Germans would not succeed in producing an atomic bomb, I would not have lifted a finger. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Atomic Bomb quotes by Edward Abbey
#102. Let men in their madness blast every city on earth into black rubble and envelope the entire planet in a cloud of lethal gas - the canyons and hills, the springs and rocks will still be here, the sunlight will filter through, water will form and warmth shall be upon the land and after sufficient time, no matter how long, somewhere, living things will emerge and join and stand once again, this time perhaps to take a different and better course. I have seen the place called Trinity, in New Mexico, where our wise men exploded the first atomic bomb and the heat of the blast fused sand into a greenish glass - already the grass has returned, and the cactus and the mesquite. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Atomic Bomb quotes by J. Robert Oppenheimer
#103. 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. #Quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer
Atomic Bomb quotes by William Bill
#104. I've been telling you for years that if they don't get their way, if all of this stuff that's happened does not enable them to bring about their world totalitarian socialist government, disarm the American people and create their New World Order, they'll blow up an American city with an atomic bomb. They will do it. I have said it probably a couple of hundred times. #Quote by William Bill
Atomic Bomb quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
#105. We do not need an atomic bomb. The Iranian nation is wise. It won't build two atomic bombs while you have 20,000 warheads. #Quote by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Atomic Bomb quotes by Vannevar Bush
#106. There has been a great deal said about a 3,00-mile high-angle rocket. The people who have been writing these things that annoy me, have been talking about a 3,000-mile high-angle rocket shot from one continent to another, carrying an atomic bomb and so directed as to be a precise weapon which would land exactly on a certain target, such as a city. #Quote by Vannevar Bush
Atomic Bomb quotes by Takashi Nagai
#107. Men and women of the world, never again plan war! With this atomic bomb, war can only mean suicide for the human race. From this atomic waste the people of Nagasaki confront the world and cry out: No more war! Let us follow the commandment of love and work together. The people of Nagasaki prostrate themselves before God and pray: Grant that Nagasaki may be the last atomic wilderness in the history of the world. #Quote by Takashi Nagai
Atomic Bomb quotes by Graham Hawkes
#108. Pressure hulls collapse at the speed of sound. Once that starts, you're inside your own little imploding atomic bomb, and you're gone. #Quote by Graham Hawkes
Atomic Bomb quotes by David McCullough
#109. The year of the birth of Israel, the year of the Republican tax cut and the Truman Balcony, would be remembered also as the year green (chlorophyll) chewing gum became a fad, the year of a new word game called "Scrabble," of tail fins on Cadillacs, and an unimaginably daring new bathing suit called the bikini, after the island where the atomic bomb tests were carried out the summer before. #Quote by David McCullough
Atomic Bomb quotes by Leslie Groves
#110. This weapon the atomic bomb has added an additional responsibility-or, better, an additional incentive-to find a sound basis for lasting peace. It provides an overwhelming inducement for the avoidance of war. It emphasizes the crisis we face in international matters and strengthens the conviction that adequate safeguards for peace must be found. #Quote by Leslie Groves
Atomic Bomb quotes by Ken Wilber
#111. You can only do so much damage to the biosphere with a bow and arrow. An atomic bomb is something else. The same ignorance backed by industry is capable of killing the entire world. So we have to separate those two issues - the ignorance and the means of inflicting that ignorance - because with modernity and science we have, for the first time in history, a way to overcome our ignorance, at precisely the same time that we have created the means to make this ignorance absolutely genocidal on a global scale. #Quote by Ken Wilber
Atomic Bomb quotes by Lee Iacocca
#112. I always go back to Harry Truman: Should we drop an atomic bomb to save 100,000 lives? That's a hell of a decision to make. Did he make that decision by himself? No, he had advisers. #Quote by Lee Iacocca
Atomic Bomb quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#113. The best defense industry is to build good relationships with your neighbors! The best missile, the best tank, the best atomic bomb is to be good friends with other countries! Enmity and its measures belong to the world of stupidity! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Atomic Bomb quotes by Albert Einstein
#114. Some recent work by E. Fermi and L. Szilárd, which has been communicated to me in manuscript, leads me to expect that the element uranium may be turned into a new and important source of energy in the immediate future. Certain aspects of the situation seem to call for watchfulness and, if necessary, quick action on the part of the Administration. ...

This new phenomenon would also lead to the construction of bombs, and it is conceivable - though much less certain - that extremely powerful bombs of a new type may thus be constructed. A single bomb of this type, carried by boat or exploded in a port, might well destroy the whole port altogether with some of the surrounding territory. However, such bombs might well prove to be too heavy for transportation by air. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Atomic Bomb quotes by Howard Zinn
#115. Scientists who had worked on the atom bomb added their voices to the growing movement. George Kistiakowsky, a Harvard University chemistry professor who had worked on the first atomic bomb, and later was science adviser to President Eisenhower, became a spokesman for the disarmament movement. HIs last public remarks, before his death from cancer at the age of eighty-two, were in an editorial for the Bulletin of Atomic Scientist in December 1982. "I tell you as my parting words: Forget the channels. There simply is not enough time left before the world explodes. Concentrate instead on organizing, with so many others of like mind, a mass movement for peace such as there has not been before. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Atomic Bomb quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#116. Scientology is the only specific (cure) for radiation (atomic bomb) burns. #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Atomic Bomb quotes by George Mikes
#117. Japan suffered terribly from the atomic bomb but never adopted a pose of moral superiority, implying: 'We would never have done it!' The Japanese know perfectly well they would have used it had they had it. They accept the idea that war is war; they give no quarter and accept none. Total war, they recognize, knows no Queensberry Rules. If you develop a devastating new weapon during a total war, you use it; you do not put it into the War Museum. #Quote by George Mikes
Atomic Bomb quotes by Tuli Kupferberg
#118. There was once a big atomic bomb
That wanted to be a bullet.
His friends all asked why, when he was such a big atomic bomb, he would want to be a tiny bullet.
"I miss", he sighed, "the personal touch. #Quote by Tuli Kupferberg
Atomic Bomb quotes by Lise Meitner
#119. I will have nothing to do with a bomb! [Response to being invited (1943) to work with Otto Robert Frisch and some British scientists at Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project to create the atomic bomb.] #Quote by Lise Meitner
Atomic Bomb quotes by Albert Einstein
#120. Mankind invented the atomic bomb,
but no mouse would ever construct
a mousetrap. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Atomic Bomb quotes by The Index-Journal
#121. Today's cheerful note: The atomic bomb can't kill you more times than you're already going to die already. #Quote by The Index-Journal
Atomic Bomb quotes by Harry Browne
#122. There was no military reason to drop atomic bombs on Japan. They were used as terrorist weapons - killing innocent people to influence other people. #Quote by Harry Browne
Atomic Bomb quotes by J.D. Salinger
#123. 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. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Atomic Bomb quotes by C.S. Lewis
#124. In one way we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. 'How are we to live in an atomic age?' I am tempted to reply: Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat any night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accidents.'

In other words, do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, dear sir or madam, you and all whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going to die in unpleasant ways.

We had, indeed, one very great advantage over our ancestors - anesthetics; but we have that still. It is perfectly ridiculous to go about whimpering and drawing long faces because the scientists have added one more chance of painful and premature death to a world which already bristled with such chances… and in which death itself was not a chance at all, but a certainty.

This is the first point to be made: and the first action to be taken is to pull ourselves together. 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 #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Atomic Bomb quotes by Leslie Groves
#125. People who talk of outlawing the atomic bomb are mistaken - what needs to be outlawed is war. #Quote by Leslie Groves
Atomic Bomb quotes by Anonymous
#126. Blitz to V-E Day. After the war was over, the novelist John Hersey invented a new kind of journalism, modelled on the techniques of fiction, in his report about the atomic-bomb attack on Hiroshima, which filled an entire issue of the magazine in the summer of 1946. That June, Ross wrote to Flanner, with a touch of rue, "Probably the magazine will never get back to where it was." The war took The New Yorker out of the city and into the world. #Quote by Anonymous
Atomic Bomb quotes by H.G.Wells
#127. Nothing could have been more obvious to the people of the early twentieth century than the rapidity with which war was becoming impossible. And as certainly they did not see it. They did not see it until the atomic bombs burst in their fumbling hands. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Atomic Bomb quotes by William Craig
#128. John McCloy, Assistant Secretary of War, to add his comments before leaving. McCloy said that all the talk of invading Japan struck him as rather "fantastic." The secretary asked, "Why not use the atomic bomb?" The meeting was once more called to order and McCloy's remark was discussed. Truman listened intently as the men at the table argued the merits of first warning the Japanese to surrender and then using the new weapon if the enemy ignored the ultimatum. The dialogue broke down because of one basic truth. No one in the room knew whether the device being readied in New Mexico would actually work. Without that knowledge, strategy was pointless. #Quote by William Craig
Atomic Bomb quotes by T. Rafael Cimino
#129. Prolific irony - For 8 years, the finger on the button that could end the world belonged to a president who couldn't pronounce the word nuclear. #Quote by T. Rafael Cimino
Atomic Bomb quotes by Harry S. Truman
#130. I suppose that history will remember my term in office as the years when the Cold War began to overshadow our lives. I have hardly a day in office that has not been dominated by this all-embracing struggle. And always in the background there has been the atomic bomb. But when history says that my term of office saw the begining of the Cold War, it will also say that in those eight years we have set the course that can win it. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Atomic Bomb quotes by Kenzaburo Oe
#131. From the instant the atomic bomb exploded, it became the symbol of all human evil; it was a savagely primitive demon and a most modern curse. #Quote by Kenzaburo Oe
Atomic Bomb quotes by James Franck
#132. In no other type of warfare does the advantage lie so heavily with the aggressor. #Quote by James Franck
Atomic Bomb quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#133. The proletariat could plan to massacre the whole ruling class; a fanatic Jew or black could dream of seizing the secret of the atomic bomb and turning all of humanity entirely Jewish or entirely black: but a woman could not even dream of exterminating males. The tie that binds her to her oppressors is unlike any other. The division of the sexes is a biological given, not a moment in human history. Their opposition took shape within an original Mitsein, and she has not broken it. The couple is a fundamental unit with the two halves riveted to each other: terristic of woman: she is the Other at the heart of a whole whose two components are necessary to each other. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Atomic Bomb quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#134. Curtis Le May wants to bomb Hanoi and Haiphong. You know how he likes to go around bombing. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Atomic Bomb quotes by Chelsea Handler
#135. Seconds later, the female security officer grabbed a pair of my father's shorts from the top of the duffel bag, and emptied out the contents of his pockets. A lighter, three nail files, a pocket wrench, a pair of pliers, a screwdriver, and a nectarine fell onto the folding table. I looked at the woman, looked at my father, and then looked around to see if anyone else was watching.
"What's the problem?" my father asked the woman.
"Sir, I'm going to have to take this lighter away from you," she said.
"The lighter?" I asked her. "What about the bomb kit he's carrying around? He could do a lot more damage to a person with that wrench."
"I need the wrench!" he shrieked.
"For what?"
"What if something goes wrong with the plane? #Quote by Chelsea Handler
Atomic Bomb quotes by Jack Kirby
#136. I'm not the sort of fellow who does the same thing all the time. I began using a lot of science fiction apparatus. I came out with the atom bomb two years before it was actually used because I read in the paper that a fellow named Nicola Tesla was working on the atom bomb. #Quote by Jack Kirby
Atomic Bomb quotes by Richard Curtis
#137. 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. #Quote by Richard Curtis
Atomic Bomb quotes by Warren Buffett
#138. I view derivatives as time bombs, both for the parties that deal in them and the economic system. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Atomic Bomb quotes by Pat Frank
#139. With the use of the hydrogen bomb, the Christian era was dead, and with it must die the tradition of the Good Samaritan. And yet Randy stopped...The incident was important only because it was self-revelatory. Randy knew he would have to play by the old rules. He could not shuck his code, or sneak out of his era. #Quote by Pat Frank
Atomic Bomb quotes by Nikita Khrushchev
#140. Let there be more corn and more meat and let there be no hydrogen bombs at all. #Quote by Nikita Khrushchev
Atomic Bomb quotes by H. Beam Piper
#141. Well, that was one thing you had to give [Makann] credit for. He wanted to run out the Gilgameshers. Everybody was in favor of that.

Now, Trask could remember something he'd gotten from Harkaman. There had been Hitler, back at the end of the First Century Pre-Atomic; hadn't he gotten into power because everybody was in favor of running out the Christians, or the Moslems, or the Albigensians, or somebody? #Quote by H. Beam Piper
Atomic Bomb quotes by Ray Bradbury
#142. The girl? She was a time bomb. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Atomic Bomb quotes by Simon Blackburn
#143. Someone sitting on a completely unreasonable belief is sitting on a time bomb. The apparently harmless, idiosyncratic belief of the Catholic Church that one thing may have the substance of another, although it displays absolutely none of its empirical qualities, prepares people for the view that some people are agents of Satan in disguise, which in turn makes it reasonable to destroy them. #Quote by Simon Blackburn
Atomic Bomb quotes by Derek Landy
#144. I don't care how smart you are," Guild said. "Sanctuary experts have examined that bomb for decades and they still have no idea how it worked, let alone how to fix it in a single afternoon."
"Of course they don't, you damn fool. They didn't build the thing in the first place, now did they?" - Kenspeckle #Quote by Derek Landy
Atomic Bomb quotes by Robert Higgs
#145. Anarchists did not try to carry out genocide against the Armenians in Turkey; they did not deliberately starve millions of Ukrainians; they did not create a system of death camps to kill Jews, gypsies, and Slavs in Europe; they did not fire-bomb scores of large German and Japanese cities and drop nuclear bombs on two of them; they did not carry out a 'Great Leap Forward' that killed scores of millions of Chinese; they did not attempt to kill everybody with any appreciable education in Cambodia; they did not launch one aggressive war after another; they did not implement trade sanctions that killed perhaps 500,000 Iraqi children.

In debates between anarchists and statists, the burden of proof clearly should rest on those who place their trust in the state. Anarchy's mayhem is wholly conjectural; the state's mayhem is undeniably, factually horrendous. #Quote by Robert Higgs
Atomic Bomb quotes by Chris Kyle
#146. The new Iraqi army had a camp nearby. Those idiots took it in their head to send a few shots our way as well. Every day. We hung a VF panel over our position - an indicator showing we were friendly - and the shots kept coming. We radioed their command. The shots kept coming. We called back and cussed out their command. The shots kept coming. We tried everything to get them to stop, short of calling in a bomb strike. #Quote by Chris Kyle
Atomic Bomb quotes by Robert Klein
#147. The '50s were terrifying with nuclear bomb stuff but boring in a social way, and then the '60s were happening, and remember, there was no AIDS. #Quote by Robert Klein
Atomic Bomb quotes by George Orwell
#148. But the thing that I saw in your face no power can disinherit: No bomb that ever burst shatters the crystal spirit. #Quote by George Orwell
Atomic Bomb quotes by Michael Davis
#149. Here we are sitting at the Waldorf in a conference room... and in comes someone with long hair and wearing an outfit dripping leather. I remember whispering to Dave Connell, "How do we know that man back there isn't going to throw a bomb up here or toss a hand grenade?"
Connell, always one to keep a cool head, assessed the situation with care. He discreetly turned his head toward the back and realized he recognized the tall, angular man carrying a small purse under his arm. A slight smile curled as he assured Cooney the hippie back there posed no threat.
"Not likely, that's Jim Henson," he said. #Quote by Michael Davis
Atomic Bomb quotes by Peggy Noonan
#150. The thing political figures fear most is a terror event that will ruin their careers. The biggest thing they fear is that a bomb goes off and it can be traced to something they did or didn't do, an action they did or didn't support. They all fear being accused of not doing enough to keep the citizenry safe. #Quote by Peggy Noonan
Atomic Bomb quotes by Gerhard Schroder
#151. One effect could be that the huge atomic arsenal created in the cold war could be reduced significantly. #Quote by Gerhard Schroder

Atomic Bomb quotes by George P. Shultz
#153. My experience is that if the military didn't want to use force and was confronted with a president that did, the military would come back with what I would call the 'bomb Moscow' scenario. They would say it had to be done with conditions that were so extreme, you obviously wouldn't do it. #Quote by George P. Shultz
Atomic Bomb quotes by Daren J. Crone
#154. Love is for the weak! #Quote by Daren J. Crone
Atomic Bomb quotes by Mark Curtis
#155. With few apparent connections to Afghanistan as such, but there were no calls to bomb Riyadh (imagine if the hijackers had been Iraqi). Rather, Saudi Arabia is a favoured ally in the 'war against terrorism'. It is obvious that at stake here are US geopolitical interests (discussed further below), more than concerns to prevent future terrorism. #Quote by Mark Curtis
Atomic Bomb quotes by Serge Haroche
#156. Most technological advances in our life now come from serendipitous discoveries. That is a contraction of rocket technology and computer technology and atomic clock technology. #Quote by Serge Haroche
Atomic Bomb quotes by Rick Yancey
#157. Wait a minute," he says, holding up one of his large handa. "A green bomb?"
"I'm not making this up."
"Why green, though?"
"Because green is the color of money, grass, oak leaves, and alien bombs. How the hell would I know why it was green? #Quote by Rick Yancey
Atomic Bomb quotes by Leila Aboulela
#158. This is the enemy, what is irreversible, what has already reached the farthest of places. There is no going back. They can bomb bus-loads of tourists, burn the American flag, but they are not shooting the enemy. It is already with them, inside them, what makes them resentful, defensive, what makes them no longer confident of their vision of the world. #Quote by Leila Aboulela
Atomic Bomb quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
#159. 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. #Quote by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Atomic Bomb quotes by Eli Roth
#160. I think that horror films have a very direct relationship to the time in which they're made. The films that really strike a film with the public are very often reflecting something that everyone, consciously or unconsciously feeling - atomic age, post 9-11, post Iraq war; it's hard to predict what people are going to be afraid of. #Quote by Eli Roth
Atomic Bomb quotes by Gregory Sherl
#161. What if there is this time bomb to love. What if it's like you fall in love with so many people who just aren't for you, and with each one, your heart toughens up, and you have to find the one who is right for you before your heart is completely calcified in your chest. #Quote by Gregory Sherl
Atomic Bomb quotes by Tom Clancy
#162. That's up to you, Jack, but part of doing this kind of work is the willingness to put on blinders. Deal with what's in front of you. Every terrorist has a mother and father. Maybe kids, maybe people that love him. Hell, six days out of seven he might be a decent citizen, but on that one day he decides to pick up a gun or plant a bomb, he's a threat. And if you're the guy standing between him and innocent lives, the threat is all you can afford to worry about. You get what I'm saying? #Quote by Tom Clancy
Atomic Bomb quotes by William S. Burroughs
#163. No atomic physicist has to worry, people will always want to kill other people on a mass scale. Sure, he's got the fridge full of sausages and spring water. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Atomic Bomb quotes by Facundo Cabral
#164. A bomb makes more noise than a caress, but for each bomb that destroys, there are millions of caresses that nourish life. #Quote by Facundo Cabral
Atomic Bomb quotes by Alfred Delp
#165. ...we pretend to be grown up and responsible; we are so proud and self-assured--and look at the result. The world lies in bomb dust and ruins about us. #Quote by Alfred Delp
Atomic Bomb quotes by King Hussein
#166. I'm proud of what I've done in Jordan, but the region itself is sitting on a time bomb. #Quote by King Hussein
Atomic Bomb quotes by James Patterson
#167. Let's just say that if these scientist had been using their brilliance for good instead of evil, cars would run off water vapor and leave fresh compost behind them; no one would be hungry; no one would be ill; all buildings would be earthquake-, bomb-, and flood-proof; and the world's entire economy would have collapsed and been replaced by one based on the value of chocolate. #Quote by James Patterson
Atomic Bomb quotes by John Burroughs
#168. One summer day, while I was walking along the country road on the farm where I was born, a section of the stone wall opposite me, and not more than three or four yards distant, suddenly fell down. Amid the general stillness and immobility about me the effect was quite startling ... It was the sudden summing up of half a century or more of atomic changes in the material of the wall. A grain or two of sand yielded to the pressure of long years, and gravity did the rest. #Quote by John Burroughs
Atomic Bomb quotes by Suh Jung
#169. You're the one always beside me when a bomb going to explode. #Quote by Suh Jung
Atomic Bomb quotes by Martin Dukes
#170. Alex had returned home to find a most unwelcome development, which had arrived through the letterbox in the superficially innocent form of a brown envelope. It might as well have been a letter bomb for its explosive impact on Alex's day. It contained his school report. #Quote by Martin Dukes
Atomic Bomb quotes by Edward Teller

Atomic Bomb quotes by J.R. Ward
#172. As V dropped the bomb, there was a momentary period of silent saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay-whaaaaaaaaaaaaat. Then a shit-ton of gasps and cursing in the room, all kinds of WTF hitting the airwaves. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Atomic Bomb quotes by Richard Dawkins
#173. Whether we ever get to know about them or not, there are very probably alien civilizations that are superhuman, to the point of being god-like in ways that exceed anything a theologian could possibly imagine. Their technical achievements would seem as supernatural to us as ours would seem to a Dark Age peasant transported to the twenty-first century. Imagine his response to a laptop computer, a mobile telephone, a hydrogen bomb or a jumbo jet. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Atomic Bomb quotes by Peter Rollins
#174. For in the figure of Christ we are confronted with an atomic event that does not destroy the world, but rather obliterates the way in which we exist within the world. In concrete terms, this means that the darkness and dissatisfaction that make their presence felt in our lives are not finally answered by certainty and satisfaction but are rather stripped of their weight and robbed of their sting. #Quote by Peter Rollins
Atomic Bomb quotes by Verka Serduchka
#175. Some songs can wait for years, and then - boom! and explode like a bomb. #Quote by Verka Serduchka
Atomic Bomb quotes by B.H. Liddell Hart
#176. The hydrogen bomb is not the answer to the Western peoples' dream of full and final insurance of their security ... While it has increased their striking power it has sharpened their anxiety and deepened their sense of insecurity. #Quote by B.H. Liddell Hart
Atomic Bomb quotes by Jimmy Carter
#177. 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. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Atomic Bomb quotes by Santosh Kalwar
