Zitate von Agatha Christie
15. September 1890 Torquay, Grafschaft Devon – 12. Januar 1976 Wallingford, Oxfordshire – Marple Agatha Christie
Rechtsanwalt Petherick: "Imagination is a very dangerous thing, as we lawyers know only too well. To be able to sift evidence impartially, to take the facts and look at them as facts – that seems to me the only logical method of arriving at the truth".
 “The Tuesday Night Club”, dt. Der Dienstagabend-Club, S. 306
[Sir Henry Clithering, Ex-Commissioner of Scotland Yard] »If you have knowledge of the kind you claim, you must go to the police.«
»I don't think I can do that,« said Miss Marple.
»But why not?«
»Because you see, I haven't got any—what you call knowledge
»You mean it's only a guess on your part?«
»You can call it that, if you like, but it's not really that at all. I know. I'm in a position to know; but if I gave my reasons for knowing to Inspector Drewitt—well, he'd simply laugh. And really, I don't know that I'd blame him. It's very difficult to understand what you might call specialized knowledge.«
