Agatha Christie Quotations

There are several sites where you can "get" Agatha Christie quotations.
I'm not quite sure where the originals come from, but here are some of them:

Brainy Quotes has 34.
 Here are a few

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

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

But surely for everything you have to love you have to pay some price.

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.

Curious things, habits. People themselves never knew they had them.

Good Reads has 134. 
Again here are just a few to whet your appetite.

"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."

"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path."

"Never do anything yourself that others can do for you."
"It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them. " 

If you are looking still more try Quote Lucy, Famous Quotes & Authors, The Quotations Page, or a Google search.

Kerrie - Thanks! I like these very much :-). One of my favourites is this: "The best time to plan a novel is while you're washing the dishes." I like that reminder...
