“And don't get hurt,' [Dexter] added. 'There's no one to help you up there. And don't go stirring up a lot of trouble for us. This case isn't ripe yet. Until it is, our policy with Mr Big is 'live and let live'.'

Ian Fleming
“Women are often meticulous and safe drivers, but they are very seldom first-class. In general, Bond regarded them as a mild hazard and he always gave them plenty of road and was ready for the unpredictable. Four women in a car he regarded as the highest potential danger, and two women nearly as lethal. Women together cannot keep silent in a car, and when women talk they have to look into each other’s faces. An exchange of words is not enough. They have to see the other person’s expression, perhaps to read behind the others’ words or analyze the reaction to their own. So two women in the front seat of a car constantly distract each other’s attention from the road ahead and four women are more than doubly dangerous for the driver not only has to hear and see, what her companion is saying but also, for women are like that, what the two behind are talking about.”
Ian Fleming, Thunderball

Paul Kyriazi, How to Live the James Bond Lifestyle: The Complete Seminar

Mark Simpson
“Bond is now the Bond Girl of the opening credits. It’s his silhouette we see – and nary a dancing naked babe in sight. Perhaps to compensate for this, in the actual film he gets his tits out a lot. He emerges from the sea glistening, showing off his pumped boobs, like Ursula Andress in ‘Dr No’ — save his nipples are more prominent. Bond has finally become his own Bond Girl.”
Mark Simpson, Metrosexy

Ian Fleming
“Hm,' said Bond. 'Bogeyman stuff.”

Enock Maregesi
“Ukiua mtu bila kumwambia kwa nini unamuua anaweza kujua umemuua kwa kumwonea. Akijua umemuua kwa kumwonea roho yake inaweza kukusumbua wewe na familia yako maisha yenu yote. Makachero wa EAC wana leseni ya kuua. Lakini si kuua ovyo kama James Bond. Kila wanayemuua lazima waandike ripoti kwa nini wamemuua. Kachero wa EAC akiua mtu, kwa makosa, kwa bahati mbaya, atalindwa na Mwenyezi Mungu. Atalindwa na Tambiko la Tume ya Dunia.”
Enock Maregesi

Anne Rice
“Alas, my being the James Bond of vampires isn't the whole issue. Vanity must wait.”
Anne Rice, The Queen of the Damned

Ian Fleming
“Now that little problem of yours, this business of not knowing good men from bad men and villains from heroes and so forth...There's still plenty for you to do. And you'll do it. And when you fall in love and have a mistress or a wife and children to look after, it will all seem easier." He opened the door but stopped on the threshold. "Surround yourself with human beings, my dear. They are easier to fight for than principles." He laughed. "But don't let me down and become human yourself. We would lose such a wonderful machine." With a wave of his hand he shut the door.”
Ian Fleming, Casino Royale

Henry Chancellor
“To Fleming, and to his readers, James Bond was a real person living in the modern world. The details of his life appear only sporadically in the books, but they proved vitally important in grounding him in his time, which made his extraordinary and often implausible adventures seem possible.”
Henry Chancellor, James Bond: The Man And His World: The Official Companion To Ian Fleming's Creation

Ian Fleming
“it's all right", he said in a clear voice as if explaining something to a child. "It's quite all right. She's having a rest. We'll be going soon. There's no hurry. You see -"
Bond's head sank down against hers and he whispered into her hair - "you see, we've got all the time in the world".”
Ian Fleming
