The above quote comes from the 1920 book The Mysterious Affair at Styles. It was the first book that introduced the character of Hercule Poirot.


"This affair must all be unravelled from within." He tapped his forehead. "These little grey cells. It is 'up to them' — as you say over here."
Hercule Poirot

Sometimes, however, they're not up to it.

I think mine are considerably darker.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (Anon)
