A Quote by Agatha Christie on life

in

I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of the emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly you 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.

A Quote by Agatha Christie on fatherhood and water

I continued to do arithmetic with my father, passing proudly through fractions to decimals. I eventually arrived at the point where so many cows ate so much grass, and tanks filled with water in so many hours I found it quite enthralling.
