: : Need some help with "going out with a bang". What does this mean? Where does it come from? Thank you in advance.

: T. S. Eliot "The Hollow Men" concludes,

: This is the way the world ends
: This is the way the world ends
: This is the way the world ends
: Not with a bang but a whimper.

: "To go out with a bang" probably predates Eliot, but I couldn't resist the urge to quote him.

Is this a Chapter in Clintons book?
