Agatha Christie quotes (34)

An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets the more interested he is in her.
Agatha Christie   Category: Age

Any woman can fool a man if she wants to and if he's in love with her.
Agatha Christie   Category:

But surely for everything you have to love you have to pay some price.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Crime is terribly revealing. Try and vary your methods as you will, your tastes, your habits, your attitude of mind, and your soul is revealed by your actions.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Curious things, habits. People themselves never knew they had them.
Agatha Christie   Category:

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   Category:

Every murderer is probably somebody's old friend.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Everything that has existed, lingers in the Eternity.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Evil is not something superhuman, it's something less than human.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that's no reason not to give it.
Agatha Christie   Category:

I don't think necessity is the mother of invention. Invention, in my opinion, arises directly from idleness, possibly also from laziness - to save oneself trouble.
Agatha Christie   Category:

I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
Agatha Christie   Category:

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
Agatha Christie   Category:

I live now on borrowed time, waiting in the anteroom for the summons that will inevitably come. And then - I go on to the next thing, whatever it is. One doesn't, luckily, have to bother about that.
Agatha Christie   Category:

I married an archaeologist because the older I grow, the more he appreciates me.
Agatha Christie   Category:

I specialize in murders of quiet, domestic interest.
Agatha Christie   Category:

I've always believed in writing without a collaborator, because where two people are writing the same book, each believes he gets all the worry and only half the royalties.
Agatha Christie   Category:

If one sticks too rigidly to one's principles, one would hardly see anybody.
Agatha Christie   Category:

It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.
Agatha Christie   Category:

It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Most successes are unhappy. That's why they are successes - they have to reassure themselves about themselves by achieving something that the world will notice.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Never do anything yourself that others can do for you.
Agatha Christie   Category:

One doesn't recognize the really important moments in one's life until it's too late.
Agatha Christie   Category:

One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood.
Agatha Christie   Category:

The best time to plan a book is while you're doing the dishes.
Agatha Christie   Category:

The happy people are failures because they are on such good terms with themselves they don't give a damn.
Agatha Christie   Category:

The popular idea that a child forgets easily is not an accurate one. Many people go right through life in the grip of an idea which has been impressed on them in very tender years.
Agatha Christie   Category:

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Agatha Christie   Category:

There is nothing more thrilling in this world, I think, than having a child that is yours, and yet is mysteriously a stranger.
Agatha Christie   Category:

There's too much tendency to attribute to God the evils that man does of his own free will.
Agatha Christie   Category:

These little grey cells. It is up to them.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Too much mercy... often resulted in further crimes which were fatal to innocent victims who need not have been victims if justice had been put first and mercy second.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Very few of us are what we seem.
Agatha Christie   Category:

Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody.
