Surround yourself with human beings, my dear James. They are easier to fight for than principles.

In Casino Royale, the first of Fleming's 007 adventures, a game of cards is James Bond's only chance to bring down the desperate SMERSH agent Le Chiffre.

But Bond soon discovers that there is far more at stake than money.
