A place where I can share the quotes that I have collected (and keep collecting) over the years. I have gathered them from all sorts of sources. The "Quote of the Day" posts will always be a quote from a book and may be on any topic.

Quote It! Saturday

Of course, this blog is devoted to quotes...but there is an awesome meme over at Freda's Voice called Quote It! and I can't resist linking up every Saturday. Here's the scoop from Freda:

Welcome to Quote It! Please feel free to grab the button and create your post. Add as many quotes as you wish, from whomever you wish. It can even be lyrics to a song, just tell us who it is. Anonymous is welcome too.

Here's today's quote with a link-up to Freda's Voice:

It's been a very complicated business. Even now I can't explain every feature of it. I don't expect to. Hercule Poroit always says that when trying to solve a mystery, any theory you evolve must explain each isolated fact and happening: they've al got to fit into a harmonious pattern with no loose ends. Of course, I'm not in the same class as him--though they do say I look a bit like him. But as long as I can explain the main outline of the crime and provide proof of guilt, I'm happy. I'm not an ambitions man.

  1. I've read a few of these quotes from the book this week, and it looks pretty good. Based on the cover I would have not thought I'd enjoy it, but after the teasers, I think I would.
    Thank you for participating!
