Ian Fleming Quote: “Against the background of this luminous and sparkling stage Bond stood in the sunshine and felt his mission to be incongruous and remote and his dark profession an affront to his fellow actors.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Head of S., thought Bond. They’re certainly giving me the red carpet treatment.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Each day the atmosphere became more hateful. It seemed fantastic to Bond that human relationships could collapse into dust overnight and he searched his mind again and again for a reason.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Bond frowned. ‘It’s not difficult to get a Double O number if you’re prepared to kill people,’ he said. ‘That’s all the meaning it has. It’s nothing to be particularly proud of.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Ever heard of “The House of Diamonds”?”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Look my friend, I’ve got to commit a murder tonight. Not you. Me. So be a good chap and stuff it, would you?”
Ian Fleming Quote: “I have discussed this with him and he points out that the Rolex Oyster Perpetual weighs about six ounces and would appreciably slow up the use of his left hand in combat. His practice, in fact, is to use fairly cheap, expendable wrist watches on expanding metal bracelets which can be slipped forward over the thumb and used in the form of a knuckle-duster, either on the outside or the inside of the hand.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “He saw her now only as a spy. Their love and his grief were relegated to the boxroom of his mind. Later, perhaps they would be dragged out, dispassionately examined, and then bitterly thrust back with other sentimental baggage he would rather forget.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “They want us dead,′ said Bond calmly. ‘So we have to stay alive.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Mania, my dear Mister Bond, is as priceless as genius. Dissipation.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Benzedrine,’ he said. ‘I rang up my secretary before dinner and asked her to wangle some out of the surgery at Headquarters. It’s what I shall need if I’m going to keep my wits about me tonight. It’s apt to make one a bit overconfident, but that’ll be a help too.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Bond surveyed his weapons. They were only his hands and his feet, his Gillette razor and his wristwatch, a heavy Rolex Oyster Perpetual on an expanding bracelet. Used properly, these could be turned into most effective knuckledusters.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “I hate small portions of anything, particularly when they taste bad.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Now in order to tell the difference between good and evil, we have manufactured two images representing the extremes – representing the deepest black and the purest white – and we call them God and the Devil. But in doing so we have cheated a bit. God is a clear image, you can see every hair on His beard. But the Devil. What does he look like?’ Bond looked triumphantly at Mathis. Mathis laughed ironically.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Mathis turned off the radio and waved an affectionate farewell. The door slammed and silence settled on the room. Bond sat for a while by the window and enjoyed being alive.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “The man seemed to realize that he was being watched. He looked up and gazed incuriously at them for a moment. Then he reached for a brief-case on the chair beside him, extracted a newspaper and started to read it, his elbows propped up on the table.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “We’re both travelling bad roads and all bad roads lead to the bad town.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “He awoke in the evening completely refreshed. After a cold shower, Bond walked over to the Casino. Since the night before he had lost the mood of the tables. He needed to re-establish that focus which is half mathematical and half intuitive and which, with a slow pulse and a sanguine temperament, Bond knew to be the essential equipment of any gambler who was set on winning.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Bond sat down and looked across into the tranquil, lined sailor’s face that he loved, honoured and obeyed.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Put your guns away and get him out,’ he ordered brusquely. ‘I’ll keep you covered. Be careful of him. I don’t want a corpse. And hurry up, it’s getting light.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “It’s wonderful,’ said Bond, deciding to relieve her mind, though irritated with her obvious guilt over this childish mystery. ‘You must go in and we’ll have breakfast on the terrace. I’m ravenous. I’m sorry I made you jump. I was just startled to see anyone about at this hour of the morning.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Push dem under the doors,’ he said. ‘Ah cain’t do nuthen else. Git mah throat cut. But Ah don’ like any foolin’ aroun’ wid da customers ’n my cyar. Nossuh.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “A scar had been beaten into his mind which would only heal by experience.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Out of the mouth of the huge, shadowed poster, between the great violet lips, half-open in ecstasy, the dark shape of a man emerged and hung down like a worm from the mouth of a corpse.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “One Saturday, he had gone to take the subway to Pennsylvania Station en route for the Soviet week-end rest camp at Glen Cove, the former Morgan estate on Long Island.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “The licence to kill for the Secret Service, the double-0 prefix, was a great honour. It had been earned hardly. It brought James Bond the only assignments he enjoyed – the dangerous ones.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “THE SCENT and smoke and sweat of a casino are nauseating at three in the morning. Then the soul-erosion produced by high gambling – a compost of greed and fear and nervous tension – becomes unbearable and the senses awake and revolt from it.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “If one could be right every hand, none of us would be here,’ he said philosophically.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “The double 0 numerals signify an agent who has killed and who is privileged to kill on active service.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “AS, TWO weeks later, James Bond awoke in his room at the Hotel Splendide, some of this history passed through his mind.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “He looked up at Mathis to see how bored he was getting with these introspective refinements of what, to Mathis, was a simple question of duty. Mathis smiled back at him.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “A few hundred yards ahead a Michelin post showed where a small parochial road crossed with the highway.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “ALTHOUGH HE had not got to bed until two, Bond walked into his headquarters punctually at ten the next morning.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “During interrogation he committed suicide by swallowing a coat-button of compressed potassium cyanide.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Le Chiffre was serving a wonderful purpose, a really vital purpose, perhaps the best and highest purpose of all. By his evil existence, which foolishly I have helped to destroy, he was creating a norm of badness by which, and by which alone, an opposite norm of goodness could exist. We were privileged, in our short knowledge of him, to see and estimate his wickedness and we emerge from the acquaintanceship better and more virtuous men.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “He was used to oblique control and rather liked it. He felt it feather-bedded him a little, allowed him to give or take an hour or two in his communications with M.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Madame Versoix had been interrupted in the middle of preparing dinner. She wore an apron and held a wooden spoon in one hand. She was younger than her husband, chubby and handsome and warm-eyed. Instinctively Bond guessed that they had no children and that they gave their thwarted affection to their friends and some regular customers, and probably to some pets.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Tears of forlornness and self-pity welled out of his eyes.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Suspiciously Bond walked over and examined the screws which secured the panel to.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “He provides a vision. He often reminds countries of their responsibilities in a way that makes it seem not only like a legal obligation but a moral responsibility.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “She kept on patching up the edifice of her deceit until Bond wanted to spank her and tell her to relax and tell the truth. Instead he just gave her a reassuring pat on the back outside her room and told her to hurry up and have her bathe. Then he went on to his room.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Bond’s mind was clear again. By a miracle he had survived a devastating wound. He could feel his armpits still wet with the fear of it. But the success of his gambit with the chair had wiped out all memories of the dreadful valley of defeat through which he had just passed.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Where am I?’ he asked and was surprised that his voice sounded firm and clear.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Vesper smiled at him. ‘I like it,’ she said. ‘I like doing everything fully, getting the most out of everything one does. I think that’s the way to live. But it sounds rather schoolgirlish when one says it,’ she added apologetically.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Stupefied, but unharmed, he allowed Mathis to lead him off towards the Splendide from which guests and servants were pouring in chattering fright. As the distant clang of bells heralded the arrival of ambulances and fire-engines, they managed to push through the throng and up the short stairs and along the corridor to Bond’s room.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “Bond found this irksome. He disliked being cosseted. It gave him claustrophobia.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “It was one of those Septembers when it seemed that the summer would never end.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “How soon Mathis had been proved right and how soon his own little sophistries had been exploded in his face!”
Ian Fleming Quote: “He wore a heavy black moustache and the backs of his hands on the rail were matted with black hair. Bond guessed that hair covered most of his squat body. Naked, Bond supposed, he would be an obscene object.”
Ian Fleming Quote: “You’re a bloody anarchist.’ He threw his arms in the air and let them fall helplessly to his sides. Bond laughed. ‘All right,’ he said. ‘Take our friend Le Chiffre. It’s simple enough to say he was an evil man, at least it’s simple enough for me because he did evil things to me. If he was here now, I wouldn’t hesitate to kill him, but out of personal revenge and not, I’m afraid, for some high moral reason or for the sake of my country.”
