Photo credit: Edwardx

Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, Lady Mallowan, was an English crime novelist, short-story writer, and playwright.

She was born on September 15, 1890 in England and died on January 12, 1976 at age 85.

Christie is best known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections, notably those revolving around the investigative work of her fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.

Now, here are ten of Christies’ quotable quotes:

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

2. It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them

3. 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

4. Never do anything yourself that others can do for you

5. There’s too much tendency to attribute to God the evils that man does of his own free will

6. Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody

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

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

9. It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story

10. Very few of us are what we seem
