Back on July 7 I asked for help researching a quotation attributed to
Agatha Christie. The Quote Investigator website now has an entry on
the topic. Here is the acknowledgment which lists many helpful people.
Special thanks to Ben Zimmer and Michael Quinion who accessed the 1966
article by Wyndham in “The Sunday Times”. Additional thanks to Quinion
for accessing the 1976 article and sharing this thoughts. Many thanks
to Dana Dalrymple for accessing the 1952 issue of “The Reader’s
Digest”. Thanks to Professor Donna L. Halper who decoded the NANA
initialism and provided information about Alec de Montmorency. Thanks
to quotation expert Nigel Rees whose reference “Brewer’s Famous
Quotations” pointed to the 1967 citation. Also, thanks to John Baker
and Amy West. All errors are the responsibility of QI.
