Best Quotes

  • I didn't want to work. It was as simple as that. I distrusted work, disliked it. I thought it was a very bad thing that the human race had unfortunately invented for itself.
  • I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainty that just to be alive is a grand thing.
  • 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.
  • I know nothing about pistols and revolvers, which is why I usually kill off my characters with a blunt instrument or better with poisons. Besides, poisons are neat and clean and really exciting... I do not think I could look a really ghastly mangled body in the face. It is the means that I am interested in. I do not usually describe the end, which is often a corpse.
  • I married an archaeologist because the older I grow, the more he appreciates me.
  • Your travel life has the aspect of a dream. It is something outside the normal, yet you are in it. It is peopled with characters you have never seen before and in all probability will never see again. It brings occasional homesickness, and loneliness, and pangs of longing... But you are like the Vikings who have gone into a world of adventure, and home is not home until you return.
  • I have learnt that I am me, that I can do the things that, as one might put it, me can do, but I cannot do the things that me would like to do.
  • Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody.
  • One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.
  • One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.
