Bang Quotations

When people really understand the Big Bang and the whole sweep of the evolution of the universe, it will be clear that humans are fairly insignificant.
George Smoot

This is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper.
T. S. Eliot

There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.
Alfred Hitchcock

Drama is very important in life: You have to come on with a bang. You never want to go out with a whimper. Everything can have drama if it's done right. Even a pancake.
Julia Child

Your body is like a piece of dynamite. You can tap it with a pencil all day, but you'll never make it explode. You hit it once with a hammer: Bang! Get serious. Do 40 hard minutes, not an hour and half of nonsense. It's so much more rewarding.
Jason Statham
