Agatha Christie Quote: “I objected vigorously to this unsporting proposal. I recognized in it the disastrous effects of matrimony.

Suzanne, by reason of her married state, was yearning to lean upon some man or other.”
Agatha Christie Quote: “Inspector Hardcastle walked in manfully. Unfortunately for him he was one of those men who have cat allergy.

Agatha Christie Quote: “It was on the fourth day that the stewardess finally urged me up on deck. Under the impression that I should die quicker below, I had steadfastly refused to leave my bunk.

Agatha Christie Quote: “A murderer is always a gambler. And, like many gamblers, a murderer often does not know when to stop. With each crime his opinion of his own abilities is strengthened. His sense of proportion is warped. He does not say, ‘I have been clever and lucky!’ No, he says only, ‘l have been clever!’ And his opinion of his cleverness grows... and then, roes amis, the ball spins.”
Agatha Christie Quote: “One does see so much evil in a village,′ murmured Miss Marple in an explanatory voice.”

Agatha Christie Quote: “Exactly! It is absurd – improbable – it cannot be. So I myself have said. And yet, my friend, there it is! One cannot escape from the facts.”
Agatha Christie Quote: “Evil is not any superhuman, but it is HUMAN.”
Agatha Christie Quote: “I’ll break every bone in your damned body, you dirty little whippersnapper,” he said.”
Agatha Christie Quote: “I had the firm conviction that, if I went about looking for adventure, adventure would meet me halfway. It is a theory of mine that one always gets what one wants.”
Agatha Christie Quote: “It was very like a dream. Like all dreamers, however, I could not let my dream alone. We poor humans are so anxious not to miss anything.”

Agatha Christie Quote: “You have a tendency, Hastings, to prefer the least likely. That, no doubt, is from reading too many detective stories.”
Agatha Christie Quote: “Why do you decry the world we live in? There are good people in it. Isn’t muddle a better breeding ground for kindliness and individuality than a world order that’s imposed, a world order that may be right today and wrong tomorrow? I would rather have a world of kindly, faulty, human beings, than a world of superior robots who’ve said goodbye to pity and understanding and sympathy.”

Agatha Christie Quote: “Ah, but you must have a Christmas uncomplicated by murder.”
Agatha Christie Quote: “England was in a funny state, a different state from what it had been. Or was it really always in the same state?

There was something moving, something sluggish somewhere, something that had to be found, suppressed.”
