    "If you were in a burning house and there was a cat and a Rembrandt, what would you save? The cat...you would save the cat, because the cat is alive. The art is dead. It's just paint on a canvas, ink on a page. To live for art is to deny life. It's just to destroy life."

    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
