James Bond Daily: Short People Got No Reason

James Bond, whose height I can't call to mind at the moment, ponders the problem of those whom you have to pick up just to say hello, on p.029 of Goldfinger:
What else could he guess? Bond always distrusted short men, They grew up from childhood with an inferiority complex. All their lives they would strive to be big -- bigger than the others who had teased them as a child., Napoleon had been short, and Hitler. It was the short men that caused all the trouble in the world. And what about a misshapen short man with a red hair and a bizarre face? That might add up to a really formidable misfit. One could certainly feel the repressions. There was a powerhouse of vitality humming in the man that suggested if one stuck an electric bulb into Goldfinger's mouth it would light up. Bond smiled at the thought.
