“Never say 'no' to adventures. Always say 'yes,' otherwise you'll lead a very dull life.”
Ian Fleming

“You only live twice:
Once when you're born
And once when you look death in the face.”
Ian Fleming, You Only Live Twice

“People are islands,' she said. 'They don't really touch. However close they are, they're really quite separate. Even if they've been married for fifty years.”
Ian Fleming, Casino Royale
