The thing that no one wants to admit is that most people want things to happen to them. We tell each other lies about the fight for free will and independence, but we don’t really want that. We want to be told how to live, and then die when we are not looking. People want oblivion, and a few of us are born to build it for them.
There are a thousand reasons why we need to find this man. You just gave me a reason to kill him.[to Madeleine, about Safin]
“The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”[quoting Jack London]
Watch now on:
Well, you live long enough…[Ernst Stavro Blofeld: You keep coming back to me. I thought I’d never see you again, but fate draws us back together. Now your enemy is my enemy. How did that happen?]
We used to be able to get into a room with the enemy, we could look him in the eye. And now the enemy is just floating in the ether. We don’t even know what they’re after.
