    "But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown."

    Quotes by Agatha Christie

    • A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world.
    • Curious things, habits. People themselves never knew they had them.
    • I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming... suddenly you find - at the age of 50, say - that a whole new life has opened before you.
      Age
    • 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.
    • I've always believed in writing without a collaborator, because where two people are writing the same book, each believes he gets all the worries and only half the royalties.
    • If one sticks too rigidly to one's principles, one would hardly see anybody.
    • The best time to plan a book is while you're doing the dishes.
    • 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.
      An Autobiography, 1977
    • I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of the emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly find - at the age of fifty, say - that a whole new life has opened before you, filled with things you can think about, study, or read about...It is as if a fresh sap of ideas and thoughts was rising in you.
      An Autobiography, 1977
    • 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.
      An Autobiography, 1977
    • One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.
      Autobiography (1977)
      War
