Charlie Chan's Witticisms

This website collects all of Charlie Chan's aphorisms and witticisms.

Some of them are quite clever:

Bad alibi like dead fish - cannot stand test of time. (Charlie Chan in Panama)

Boy Scout knife, like ladies' hairpin, have many uses. (Charlie Chan's Secret)

I have it on good authority that none of Chan's aphorisms attributed to Confucius are correct.
