You Only Live Twice

I am reading You Only Live Twice by Ian Fleming this week. Good fun.

Every dog needs a few fleas otherwise it will forget it is a dog.

You only live twice, once when you are born and once when you look death in the face.—James Bond (a.k.a. Bondo-San and Agent 777 in the book)

Really enjoying the book. A lot about Japan and Japanese culture. It worries me that Ian Fleming did a good job of describing it because if he understood it as well as I think I do then I must not get it at all. Shimata(sp), I make a mistake.

Everything is new tomorrow.

The story deals with Bond's depression/mid-life_crises following the death of his wife and a couple of failed missions. With James ready to resign and run a chicken farm M sends him on a mission in the hope that Bond will discover his second chance at life.
