"I always have a quotation for everything - it saves original thinking." -- Dorothy L. Sayers
Dorothy Leigh Sayers (usually pronounced , although Sayers herself preferred and encouraged the use of her middle initial to facilitate this pronunciation) (Oxford, 13 June 1893 — Witham, 17 December 1957) was a renowned English crime writer, poet, playwright, essayist, translator and Christian humanist. She was also a student of classical and modern languages. She is best known for her mysteries, a series of novels and short stories set between World War I and World War II that feature English aristocrat and amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey.
