Master Of Witty Thoughts - Agatha Christie

“You gave too much rein to your imagination. Imagination is a good servant, and a bad master. The simplest explanation is always the most likely.” 
Agatha Christie, The Mysterious Affair at Styles

“But surely for everything you love you have to pay some price.” 
Agatha Christie, An Autobiography

“If you are to be Hercule Poirot, you must think of everything.” 
Agatha Christie

“Words, madmoiselle, are only the outer clothing of ideas.” 
Agatha Christie, The ABC Murders

“The truth, however ugly in itself, is always curious and beautiful to seekers after it.” 
Agatha Christie, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

“Every murderer is probably somebody's old friend.” 
Agatha Christie, The Mysterious Affair at Styles

“There was a moment when I changed from an amateur to a professional. I assumed the burden of a profession, which is to write even when you don't want to, don't much like what you're writing, and aren't writing particularly well” 
Agatha Christie

“Dogs are wise. They crawl away into a quiet corner and lick their wounds and do not rejoin the world until they are whole once more.” 
Agatha Christie, The Moving Finger

“It often seems to me that's all detective work is, wiping out your false starts and beginning again."
Yes, it is very true, that. And it is just what some people will not do. They conceive a certain theory, and everything has to fit into that theory. If one little fact will not fit it, they throw it aside. But it is always the facts that will not fit in that are significant.” 
Agatha Christie, Death on the Nile

“Intuition is like reading a word without having to spell it out. A child can't do that because it has had so little experience. A grown-up person knows the word because they've seen it often before.” 
Agatha Christie, Murder at the Vicarage

“People should be interested in books, not their authors.” 
Agatha Christie
