That one word, my dear Watson, should have told me the whole story had I been the ideal reasoner which you are so fond of depicting. It was evidently a term of reproach."

-Sherlock Holmes- ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
On glancing over my notes of the seventy odd cases in which I have during the last eight years studied the methods of my friend Sherlock Holmes, I find many tragic, some comic, a large number merely strange, but none commonplace; for, working as he did rather for the love of his art than for the acquirement of wealth, he refused to associate himself with any investigation which did not tend towards the unusual, and even the fantastic. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Mr. Sherlock Holmes ... was usually very late in the mornings, save upon those not infrequent occasions when he was up all night. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Men of character always differentiate their long letters, however illegibly they may write. - Sherlock Holmes ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
It is of the first importance not to allow your judgment to be biased by personal qualities. A client is to me a mere unit,
a factor in a problem. - Sherlock Holmes ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I have taken to living by my wits. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Perhaps when a man has special knowledge and special powers like my own, it rather encourages him to seek a complex explanation when a simpler one is at hand. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I could not rest, Watson, I could not sit quiet in my chair, if I thought that such a man as Professor Moriarty were walking the streets of London unchallenged. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
From the first day I met her, she was the only woman to me. Every day of that voyage I loved her more, and many a time since have I kneeled down in the darkness of the night watch and kissed the deck of that ship because I knew her dear feet had trod it. She was never engaged to me. She treated me as fairly as ever a woman treated a man. I have no complaint to make. It was all love on my side, and all good comradeship and friendship on hers. When we parted she was a free woman, but I could never again be a free man. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
In the darkest corner of a darkened room, all Sherlock Homes stories begin. In the pregnant dim of gaslight and smoke, Holmes would sit, digesting the day's papers, puffing on his long pipe, injecting himself with cocaine. He would pop smoke rings into the gloom, waiting for something, anything, to pierce into the belly of his study and release the promise of adventure; of clues to interpret; of, at last he would plead, a puzzle he could not solve. And after each story he would return here, into the dark room, and die day by day of boredom. The darkness of his study was his cage, but also the womb of his genius. ~ Graham Moore
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Graham Moore
The more outré and grotesque an incident is the more carefully it deserves to be examined. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Do you remember what Darwin says about music? He claims that the power of producing and appreciating it existed among the human race long before the power of speech was arrived at. Perhaps that is why we are so subtly influenced by it. There are vague memories in our souls of those misty centuries when the world was in its childhood.'
That's a rather broad idea,' I remarked.
One's ideas must be as broad as Nature if they are to interpret Nature,' he answered. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Yes, the setting (Dartmoor) is a worthy one. If the devil did desire to have a hand in the affairs of men.
Sherlock Holmes ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
It's quite exciting, said Sherlock Holmes, with a yawn. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
My horror at his crimes was lost in my admiration at his skill. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
But you, Holmes-you have changed very little-save for that horrible goatee."
"These are the sacrifices one makes for one's country, Watson," said Holmes, pulling at his little tuft. "To-morrow it will be but a dreadful memory. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
That hurts my pride, Watson. It is a petty feeling, no doubt, but it hurts my pride. It becomes a personal matter with me now..."

-Sherlock Holmes-
-The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Five Orange Pips- ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Sherlock Holmes took his bottle from the corner of the mantelpiece, and his hypodermic syringe from its neat morocco case. With his long, white, nervous fingers he adjusted the delicate needle and rolled back his left shirtcuff. For some little time his eyes rested thoughtfully upon the sinewy forearm and wrist, all dotted and scarred with innumerable puncture-marks. Finally, he thrust the sharp point home, pressed down the tiny piston, and sank back into the velvet-lined armchair with a long sigh of satisfaction. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
It's a very cheery thing to come into London by any of these lines which run high and allow you to look down upon the houses like this."
I thought he was joking, for the view was sordid enough, but he soon explained himself.
"Look at those big, isolated clumps of buildings rising up above the slates, like brick islands in a lead-coloured sea."
"The board-schools."
"Light-houses, my boy! Beacons of the future! Capsules with hundreds of bright little seeds in each, out of which will spring the wiser, better England of the future. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Speaking of my old friend and biographer, I would take this opportunity to remark that if I burden myself with a companion in my various little inquiries it is not done out of sentiment or caprice, but it is that Watson has some remarkable characteristics of his own to which in his modesty he has given small attention amid his exaggerated estimates of my own performances. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
The world is big enough for us. No ghosts need apply. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
What you do in this world is a matter of no consequence. The question is what can you make people believe you have done. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
No man burdens his mind with small matters unless he has some very good reason for doing so. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
That head of yours should be for use as well as
ornament. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Holmes, who loathed every form of society with his whole Bohemian soul, remained in our lodgings in Baker Street, buried among his old books, and alternating from week to week between cocaine and ambition, the drowsiness of the drug, and the fierce energy of his own keen nature. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Moriarty: ... everything I have to say has already crossed your mind. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
You have a grand gift for silence, Watson. It makes you quite invaluable as a companion. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I love Sherlock Holmes. There's still an awful lot to steal from Conan Doyle. But within a tradition you can work in many different ways. ~ Henning Mankell
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Henning Mankell
On westminster Bridge, Arthur was struck by the brightness of the streetlamps running across like a formation of stars. They shone white against the black coats of the marching gentlefold and fuller than the moon against the fractal spires of Westminster. They were, Arthur quickly realized, the new electric lights, which the city government was installing, avenue by avenue, square by square, in place of the dirty gas lamps that had lit London's public spaces for a century. These new electric ones were brighter. They were cheaper. They required less maintenance. And they shone farther into the dime evening, exposing every crack in the pavement, every plump turtle sheel of stone underfoot. So long to the faint chiaroscuro of London, to the ladies and gentlemen in black-on-black relief. So long to the era of mist and carbonized Newcastle coal, to the stench of the Blackfriars foundry. Welcome to the cleasing glare of the twentieth century. ~ Graham Moore
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Graham Moore
I should be very much obliged if you would slip your revolver into your pocket. An Eley's No. 2 is an excellent argument with gentlemen who can twist steel pokers into knots. That and a tooth-brush are, I think, all that we need. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Speaking professionally, it was admirably done."
-John H. Watson-
-The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes- ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
There is nothing more to be said or to be done tonight, so hand me over my violin and let us try to forget for half an hour the miserable weather and the still more miserable ways of our fellowmen. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Come, Watson, come!" he cried. The game is afoot. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
My sympathies and my love went out to her, even as my hand had in the garden. I felt that years of the conventionalities of life could not teach me to know her sweet, brave nature as had this one day of strange experiences. Yet there were two thoughts which sealed the words of affection upon my lips. She was weak and helpless, shaken in mind and nerve. It was to take her at a disadvantage to obtrude love upon her at such a time. Worst still, she was rich. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Eliminate the impossible, and what ever remains, however improbable, must be the truth" - Sherlock Holmes ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Sherlock Holmes closed his eyes and placed his elbows upon the arms of his chair, with his finger-tips together. "The ideal reasoner," he remarked, "would, when he had once been shown a single fact in all its bearings, deduce from it not only all the chain of events which led up to it but also all the results which would follow from it. As Cuvier could correctly describe a whole animal by the contemplation of a single bone, so the observer who has thoroughly understood one link in a series of incidents should be able to accurately state all the other ones, both before and after. We have not yet grasped the results which the reason alone can attain to. Problems may be solved in the study which have baffled all those who have sought a solution by the aid of their senses. To carry the art, however, to its highest pitch, it is necessary that the reasoner should be able to utilise all the facts which have come to his knowledge; and this in itself implies, as you will readily see, a possession of all knowledge, which, even in these days of free education and encyclopaedias, is a somewhat rare accomplishment. It is not so impossible, however, that a man should possess all knowledge which is likely to be useful to him in his work, and this I have endeavoured in my case to do. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
The affair seems absurdly trifling, and yet I dare call nothing trivial when I reflect that some of my most classic cases have had the least promising commencement. You will remember, Watson, how the dreadful business of the Abernetty family was first brought to my notice by the depth which the parsley had sunk into the butter upon a hot day. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I am inclined to think
" said I. "I should do so," Sherlock Holmes remarked impatiently. I believe that I am one of the most long-suffering of mortals; but I'll admit that I was annoyed at the sardonic interruption. "Really, Holmes," said I severely, "you are a little trying at times. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I am not the law, but I represent justice so far as my feeble powers go. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Excellent!" I cried. "Elementary," said he. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
Detective Conan Sherlock Holmes quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
The game is afoot. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
