Yan Fleming

English writer, author of novels about the superspy James Bond
Above all, he liked it that everything was one's own fault. There was only oneself to praise or blame. Luck was a servant and not a master. Luck had to be accepted with a shrug or taken advantage of up to the hilt. But it had to be understood and recognized for what it was and not confused with a faulty appreciation of the odds, for, at gambling, the deadly sin is to mistake bad play for bad luck. And luck in all its moods had to be loved and not fearedMore Yan Fleming quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I think it's the same with all the relationships between a man and a woman. They can survive anything so long as some kind of basic humanity exists between the two people. When all kindness has gone, when one person obviously and sincerely doesn't care if the other is alive or dead, then it's just no good. -- from Quantum of SolaceMore Yan Fleming quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I always make it a rule never to look back. Otherwise, I'd ask myself how I could write such piffle and live with myself, day after day.More Yan Fleming quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
