Yip Man: Kung fu is more than a system of fighting. It's a system of thought. You must outthink your opponent, whatever form he takes... because some of them will be more than just men.
Voice of Young Bruce: What else could it be Si Fu?
Yip Man: We all have inner demons to fight. We call these demons 'fear', and 'hatred', and 'anger'. If you don't conquer them, then a life of a hundred years... is a tragedy. But if you do, a life of a single day can be a triumph.

When I was a kid I had all these crazy ideas. I wanted to show the world the beauty of our culture, I wanted to give them a hero, but a Chinese hero. But I want something else now - I want to stop breaking my wife's heart. I want to play with my children without having to look at the clock. They're American... I need to go back to America or I lose them. If I lose them, nothing means anything.

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're not looking. People want oblivion, and a few of us are born to build it for them. So here I am - their invisible god sneaking under their skin.

WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!

MI6 spy chief M (Ralph Fiennes) gathers Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and others in the London to pay tribute to a fallen comrade, opening a book and reading a quote that calls back to the history of Ian Fleming’s James Bond series.

According to Yahoo Entertainment, the lines that M reads come from Jack London, an American novelist known for adventure books like The Call of the Wild and The Sea Wolf. The passage was first published in the San Francisco Bulletin in 1916, which said that the author "is known to have said these words, just two months before his death, to a group of friends with whom he was discussing life and living."

The words have another connection to the James Bond lexicon. The very same passage appeared in Ian Fleming's 1964 novel You Only Live Twice.

In the novel, the words are used to eulogize Bond after a newspaper obituary appears and the world mistakenly thinks that the famed British agent has been killed. MI6 agent and 007 love interest Mary Goodnight suggests “these simple words for his epitaph. Many of the junior staff here feel they represent his philosophy: ‘I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.'” The book connection suggests that we shouldn't write off 007 for good.

No Time to Die offers other clues, including what M says just after reading the quote, "Let's get back to work." Additionally, at the very end of the credits, the franchise's trademark statement "James Bond will return" appears.

I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure.
