Famous quotes containing the word christie:

    There is nothing so dangerous for anyone who has something to hide as conversation!... A human being, Hastings, cannot resist the opportunity to reveal himself and express his personality which conversation gives him. Every time he will give himself away.
    —Agatha Christie (1891–1976)

    [My father] was a lazy man. It was the days of independent incomes, and if you had an independent income you didn’t work. You weren’t expected to. I strongly suspect that my father would not have been particularly good at working anyway. He left our house in Torquay every morning and went to his club. He returned, in a cab, for lunch, and in the afternoon went back to the club, played whist all afternoon, and returned to the house in time to dress for dinner.
    —Agatha Christie (1891–1976)

    One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood.
    —Agatha Christie (1890–1976)
