Cleverness

Today´s Quotation comes from Elly Griffiths: The Woman in Blue.

And she is intelligent and a good officer, it’s just that a suspect or any person of interest is not going to give you marks for cleverness; most of the time you just need to listen. The time for cleverness comes later.

Alive and well on Facebook

Today´s Quotation comes from Elly Griffiths: The Woman in Blue.

Michelle looks surprised. ‘She put a picture on Facebook. She was in a club with Andre.’

Nelson breathes a sigh of relief. That was the way of the world now. You rely on Facebook to tell you that your daughter’s alive and well, even if she’s in the company of Andre, a public schoolboy who thinks he’s an American gangster DJ.

What do the well frog know of the ocean

Todays quotation is from Behind the Curtain by Earl Derr Biggers. Another word of wisdom from Charlie Chan:

”Can you speak of the ocean to a well frog, or of ice to a summer insect?”
