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 exercise, mathematics, men, questions, thinking, and work

"I think you're begging the question," said Haydock, "and I can see looming ahead one of those terrible exercises in probability where six men have white hats and six men have black hats and you have to work it out by mathematics how likely it is that the hats will get mixed up and in what proportion. If you start thinking about things like that, you would go round the bend. Let me assure you of that!"
