CAIRO – 13 November 2017: “It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.” ― Agatha Christie, An Autobiography
Born in Torquay, Devon, England, the United Kingdom on September 15, 1890, Agatha Christie earned herself the title “the bestselling author of all time” after writing 80 novels, story collections, 14 plays and a number of other books, which resulted into around 4 billion sold copies and were translated into 45 languages from all over the world.
Through this quote Christie is arguing that seeing people in their most uncalculated, unorganized moment makes us realize how we truly feel about them.
An adaptation to the big screen of her novel A Murder on the Orient Express is currently playing in theatres all over the world. The huge production is directed by and starring the classically talented Kenneth Branagh alongside a cast of A-list stars such as Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz and Willem Dafoe.
● Christie wrote romance novels and published them under the name Mary Westmacott.
● She worked as a nurse during WWI and then took on a job at a pharmacy, which had an impact on her writing as many of the murders in her books are committed with poison.
Another quote for the road:
“Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that's no reason not to give it.”
