10 Agatha Christie Quotes to Enlighten You

“To every problem, there is a most simple solution.” 

The Queen of Mystery, Agatha Christie, is one of the most significant authors in literary history and by far one of my favorite writers. With best-selling novels like And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express, Christie has managed to enchant millions of readers through her shocking plots and memorable characters.

 

 

Through her incredible writing, Christie has delivered some very important life lessons, such as walking through life with an air of questioning and not taking things (or people) at face value. Perhaps, however, the most important lessons learned through Christie's writing are the small yet powerful pieces of advice. Here are 10 Agatha Christie quotes to enlighten you:
