- The amount of comfort. All love and friendship is based in the end on that. When the quantum of solace stands at zero, you've got to get away to save yourself. From Ian Fleming's short story of the same name in the Bond collection For Your Eyes Only.
The Governor paused and looked reflectively over at Bond. He said: "You're not married, but I think it's the same with all 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. That particular insult to the ego - worse, to the instinct of self-preservation - can never be forgiven. I've noticed this in hundreds of marriages. I've seen flagrant infidelitiespatched up, I've seen crimes and even murder forgiven by the other party, let alone bankruptcy and every other form of social crime. Incurable disease, blindness, disaster - all these can be overcome. But never the death of common humanity in one of the partners. I've thought about this and I've invented a rather high-sounding title for this basic factor in human relations. I have called it the Law of the Quantum of Solace."

Get the Quantum of Solace mug.
22nd bond movie. It's mostly Judi Dench bitching at Daniel Craig in between horribly shot and edited action scenes that have no point.
No one knows what quantum of solace even means.

One of the poorest Bond movies ever made. It’s directed like the fence scene from Taken 2 and is like a cheap Bourne knockoff featuring a stupid plot about a little French man hijacking Bolivia’s water supply to then ransom it back to them for discount S.P.E.C.T.R.E and features very flat performances all around. One of the biggest boils on the James Bond franchise’s ass along with SPECTRE, Die Another Day, A View To A Kill, Licence To Kill and Tomorrow Never Dies. Only good thing this load of rubbish gave us was Skyfall 4 years later.
Quantum Of Solace? More like Load Of Baloney. You don’t follow Casino Royale with THIS!!
