“These little grey cells. It is up to them.”
—Agatha Christie (18901976)
“[My father] was a lazy man. It was the days of independent incomes, and if you had an independent income you didnt work. You werent 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 (18911976)
