Quote for the Day.

"Detective authors, by the way, are nearly all as good as gold, because it is part of their job to believe and to maintain that Your Sin Will Find You Out. That is why Detective Fiction is, or should be, such a good influence to a degenerate world, and that, no doubt, is why so many bishops, school masters, eminent statesmen, and others with reputations to support, read detective stories, to improve their morals and to keep them out of mischief."
Dorothy L. Sayers, introduction to the Third Omnibus of Crime (1935; 2)
