Happy Birthday, Martha Grimes, born 2 May 1931
- Before you hate something you should try to understand it.
- I enjoy these characters a lot. I really like thinking about them, watching them, seeing what they’re going to do. I write about these people, and I get really connected to them and I just cannot let them go.
- An idyllic childhood is probably illusion.
- I do not believe that people are indifferent to the welfare of animals, possibly, the exact opposite is true – people are so affected by stories, pictures, accounts of animal abuse that they simply do not want to know.
- We don't know who we are until we see what we can do.
- You’re not really a writer unless you’re actually writing. So that’s why I continue to do it: because I want to continue to think of myself as a writer.
