Author Unknown Quote


"[Poirot is sick with the cold. He goes out to post a letter, and is surprised by Hastings arriving in his car, honking the horn]
Captain Hastings: How is the cold, old boy?
Hercule Poirot: And now you try to give me the heart attack? If would not be surprised if riding in that... car... was responsible for my present maladie.
Captain Hastings: She's much too much of a lady to give anyone a cold. She's running like a bird since I fitted those new gaskets.
Hercule Poirot: Birds do not run, Hastings. When you were little you should've paid more attention to your lessons in biology.
Captain Hastings: You're really in a bad way, aren't you?
Hercule Poirot: Well, my friend... As one approaches the end, one begins to see life as it truly is."
