#1. I imagine John Watson thinks love's a mystery to me, but the chemistry is incredibly simple and very destructive. When we first met, you told me that a disguise is always a self portrait, how true of you, the combination to your safe – your measurements. But this is far more intimate. This is your heart, and you should never let it rule your head. You could have chosen any random number and walked out of here today with everything you worked for. But you just couldn't resist it, could you? I've always assumed that love is a dangerous disadvantage. Thank you for the final proof. - Author: Mark Gatiss
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Mark Gatiss
#2. 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. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#3. 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. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#4. He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position. He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a gibe and a sneer. They were admirable things for the observer- excellent for drawing the veil from men's motives and actions. But for the trained observer to admit such intrusions into his own delicate and finely adjusted temperament was to introduce a distracting factor which might throw a doubt upon all his mental results. Grit in a sensitive instrument, or a crack in one of his own high-power lenses, would not be more disturbing than a strong emotion in a nature such as his. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#5. It was quite elementary,' returned the detective with a languid gesture of one hand. - Author: Anthony Horowitz
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Anthony Horowitz
#6. Trying to be Sherlock Holmes is like trying to catch an arrow in mid-flight. - Author: Jeremy Brett
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Jeremy Brett
#7. Do you remember," he said, "one of Holmes's little scores over Watson about the number of steps up to the Baker Street lodging? Poor old Watson had been up and down them a thousand times, but he had never thought of counting them, whereas Holmes had counted them as a matter of course, and knew that there were seventeen. And that was supposed to be the difference between observation and non-observation. Watson was crushed again, and Holmes appeared to him more amazing than ever. Now, it always seemed to me that in that matter Holmes was the ass, and Watson the sensible person. What on earth is the point of keeping in your head an unnecessary fact like that? If you really want to know at any time the number of steps to your lodging, you can ring up your landlady and ask her. - Author: A.A. Milne
Rdj Sherlock quotes by A.A. Milne
#8. Religion
These three assholes can do just about whatever they like, and we're not supposed to say anything about it. - Author: Michael Sherlock
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Michael Sherlock
#9. A yellow fog swirls past the window-pane
As night descends upon this fabled street;
A lonely hansom splashes through the rain,
The ghostly gas lamps fail at twenty feet.
Here, though the world explode, these two survive,
And it is always eighteen ninety-five. - Author: Vincent Starrett
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Vincent Starrett
#10. we are two like-minded creatures too well-matched, both equal halves of a whole not altogether wholesome - Author: Beatriz Fitzgerald Fernandez
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Beatriz Fitzgerald Fernandez
#11. Sherlock said, 'He eats Cheerios for breakfast with our son, Sean,' and smiled. 'I eat a slice of wheat toast with crunchy peanut butter. - Author: Catherine Coulter
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Catherine Coulter
#12. I stood there, on the edge of the bloody bridge, because he was mine. Sherlock was mine and I wanted him. I loved him, and maybe it was wrong, or twisted, but I couldn't be swayed. Not again. - Author: Heather W. Petty
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Heather W. Petty
#13. Give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and i am in my own proper atmosphere. I crave for mental exaltation. That is why I have chosen my own particular profession, or rather created it. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#14. I'd always hated those films - they'd portrayed Dr. Watson as a bumbling idiot, and Sherlock Holmes as an automaton. - Author: Brittany Cavallaro
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Brittany Cavallaro
#15. Sherlock Holmes was a drug addict without a single amiable trait. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Rdj Sherlock quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#16. He got up. It was too early to go to bed; at least, he was not in the mood for it. He pined for a bit of amusement - something cheap and easy. A seat in the pictures, cigarettes, beer. Useless! No money to pay for any of them. He would read KING LEAR and forget this filthy century. Finally, however, it was THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES that he took from the mantelpiece. SHERLOCK HOLMES was his favorite of all books, because he knew it by heart. The oil in the lamp was giving out and it was getting beastly cold. Gordon dragged the quilt from his bed, wrapped it round his legs and sat down to read. His right elbow on the table, his hands under his coat to keep them warm, he read through "The Adventure of the Speckled Band." The little gas-mantle sighed above, the circular flame of the oil-lamp burned low, a thin bracket of fire, giving out no more heat than a candle. - Author: George Orwell
Rdj Sherlock quotes by George Orwell
#17. There are perennial stories like 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Sherlock Holmes' and those sorts of things, which have been around since almost as long as film, and 'Frankenstein' is another one. They're perennial favorites, which get remade every 20 years, and that's OK. - Author: Peter Jackson
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Peter Jackson
#18. For the first time in a very many years, he felt the old vexation, the mingled impatience and pleasure at the world's beautiful refusal to yield up its mysteries without a fight. - Author: Michael Chabon
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Michael Chabon
#19. So I need to lay down some ground rules."
"Rules for the use of the ground?" He's gazing out the window. "Am I still allowed to step on it? - Author: Eva Morgan
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Eva Morgan
#20. Pray interrupt me if there is any inference which is not perfectly clear to you. It is of the highest importance in the art of detection to be able to recognise, out of a number of facts, which are incidental and which vital. Your energy and attention must be dissipated instead of being concentrated."

Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#21. I would not bring one shadow on his life, and this I know would break his noble heart. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#22. Is that true? Are you really him?"
"I am afraid I still hold that distinction."
"You are Sherlock Holmes? No, I don't believe it."
"That is quite all right. I scarcely believe it myself. - Author: Mitch Cullin
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Mitch Cullin
#23. The truth is you've already heard this. That this is what it's like. That it's what makes room for the universes inside you, all the endless inbent fractals of connection and symphonies of different voices, the infinities you can never show another soul. And you think it makes you a fraud, the tiny fraction anyone else ever sees? Of course you're a fraud, of course what people see is never you. And of course you know this, and of course you try to manage what part they see if you know it's only a part. Who wouldn't? It's called free will, Sherlock. But at the same time it's why it feels so good to break down and cry in front of others, or to laugh, or speak in tongues, or chant in Bengali--it's not English anymore, it's not getting squeezed through any hole. - Author: David Foster Wallace
Rdj Sherlock quotes by David Foster Wallace
#24. No man burdens his mind with small matters unless he has some very good reason for doing so. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#25. Jen leaned around Sally and glared at her two best friends. "What are you two betting on?"
"Good grief. What, does she have eagle ears or something?"
"No you dork. Your whisper is just you talking in normal volume but making your voice raspy. Really, you sound more like a chick who's been smoking for thirty years." Jen shrugged. "I'm just throwing that out there. You can take it and apply it at your leisure."
Fane was chuckling at Jen's words when Jacque elbowed him, causing him to cough.
"You don't get to laugh, wolf-man." Jacque turned back to Jen. "Thank you for that observation, Sherlock. - Author: Quinn Loftis
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Quinn Loftis
#26. There's a lot of Sherlock love in here. In many ways, this book might as well be called 'Deduce THIS, Sexlock Holmes!' with a picture of me licking his meerschaum, cross-eyed and screaming. - Author: Caitlin Moran
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Caitlin Moran
#27. You interest me very much, Mr. Holmes. I had hardly expected so dolichocephalic a skull or such well-marked supra-orbital development. Would you have any objection to my running my finger along your parietal fissure? A cast of your skull, sir, until the original is available, would be an ornament to any anthropological museum. It is not my intention to be fulsome, but I confess that I covet your skull." Sherlock - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#28. To me, the Sherlock Holmes stories are about a great friendship. Without Watson, Holmes might well have burnt out on cocaine long ago. I hope the series shows how important friendship is. - Author: Jeremy Brett
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Jeremy Brett
#29. THAT'S THE POINT, SHERLOCK!', - Author: John Green
Rdj Sherlock quotes by John Green
#30. I bet it was also the triumphant Aha! and not the truth itself that had fueled all those famous literary detectives I knew not much about except their names - Philip Marlowe, Sherlock Holmes, Joe and Frank Hardy. I felt like yelling something celebratory on my way home, something like, Yeah! or Fuck, yeah! just like Marlowe would have yelled, just like the Hardys would have yelled, and maybe Holmes, too, although maybe that's why he kept Watson around; to tell Holmes to simmer down and not get too far ahead of himself. - Author: Brock Clarke
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Brock Clarke
#31. So do you think there's more to her than meets the eye!" he teased, and Alex cursed herself for being so easy to read.
"My guess is she's running from something.
"No shit Sherlock", she agreed silently. "Probably a guy. It's nearly always a guy. - Author: Melissa Hill
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Melissa Hill
#32. True deduction can only be obtained through a certain amount of self annihilation. - Author: Joe Riggs
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Joe Riggs
#33. Sherlock Holmes observed that once you have eliminated the impossible then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the answer. I, however, do not like to eliminate the impossible. - Author: Douglas Adams
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Douglas Adams
#34. Speaking professionally, it was admirably done."
-John H. Watson-
-The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes- - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#35. When I think of Sherlock Holmes, I think of a guy who can wander into the confusion of life and sort of pluck out answers at will. - Author: Graham Moore
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Graham Moore
#36. Sure there are times when one cries with acidity,
'Where are the limits of human stupidity?'
Here is a critic who says as a platitude
That I am guilty because 'in gratitude
Sherlock, the sleuth-hound, with motives ulterior,
Sneers at Poe's Dupin as "very inferior".'
Have you not learned, my esteemed communicator,
That the created is not the creator?
As the creator I've praised to satiety
Poe's Monsieur Dupin, his skill and variety,
And have admitted that in my detective work
I owe to my model a deal of selective work.
But is it not on the verge of inanity
To put down to me my creation's crude vanity?
He, the created, would scoff and would sneer,
Where I, the creator, would bow and revere.
So please grip this fact with your cerebral tentacle:
The doll and its maker are never identical. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rdj Sherlock quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
