Popular Quotes

“a politician’s capacity to ignore contradictory evidence”
― Reginald Hill, Good Morning, Midnight

 “Buses and trains both set you thinking, but not in the same way. Trains give you a rhythm, sent you into dreams, cut you off from reality. Buses were always stopping and starting; traffic, road-junctions, lights; and of course, bus-stops. The world you passed through was observable. And real. So was the world inside your head. Buses were good places to worry on.”
― Reginald Hill, A Clubbable Woman

“So what to do? . . . She shook her head impatiently. Choice is a largely delusional concept, her tutor used to say. Whether in politics, morals or shopping, we have far less than we imagine. In the end what we have to do often doesn’t even figure on our list of pseudo-options.”
― Reginald Hill

“Sorry?” said Dalziel turning. “What’s that you said?”

― Reginald Hill, An Advancement of Learning

 “Or an amicable pair,” said Sam. “Sorry?” “In math, that’s what we call two numbers each of which is equal to the sum of the divisors of the other. The smallest ones, 220 and 284, were regarded by the Pythagoreans as symbols of true friendship.”
― Reginald Hill, The Stranger House

 “His attitude to physical clues was rather like that of the modern Christian to miracles. They could happen, but probably not just at the moment.”
― Reginald Hill, An April Shroud

One Final Bonus – Reginald Hill Quote 

“Twelve strangers,” he interrupted, “twelve citizens picked off the street. In this world we’re unfortunate to live in, and especially in this septic isle we live on, where squalid politicians conspire with the squalid press to feed a half-educated and wholly complacent public on a diet of meretricious trivia, I’m sure it would be possible to concoct enough evidence to persuade twelve strangers that Nelson Mandela was a cannibal.”― Reginald Hill, The Woodcutter
