"I think that you know me well enough, Watson, to understand that I am by no means a nervous man. At the same time, it is stupidity rather than courage to refuse to recognize danger when it is close upon you." ~ The Final Problem by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle How wise and how merciful is that provision of nature by which his earthly anchor is usually loosened by many little imperceptible tugs, until his consciousness has drifted out of its untenable earthly harbor into the great sea beyond! ~ The Poison Belt by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Great sorrow or great joy should bring intense hunger--not abstinence from food, as our novelists will have it." ~ The Poison Belt by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "The true scientific mind is not to be tied down by its own conditions of time and space. It builds itself an observatory erected upon the border line of present, which separates the infinite past from the infinite future. From this sure post it makes its sallies even to the beginning and to the end of all things." ~ The Poison Belt by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle The future was with Fate. The present was our own. ~ The Poison Belt by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle He spoke wistfully of a sudden leaving, a breaking of old ties, a flight into a strange world, ending in this dreary valley, and Ettie listened, her dark eyes gleaming with pity and with sympathy - those two qualities which may turn so rapidly and so naturally to love. ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Strange indeed is human nature. Here were these men, to whom murder was familiar, who again and again had struck down the father of the family, some man against whom they had no personal feeling, without one thought of compunction or of compassion for his weeping wife or helpless children, and yet the tender or pathetic in music could move them to tears. ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Unwelcome truths are not popular. ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "I was helping Uncle Sam to make dollars. Maybe mine were not as good gold as his, but they looked as well and were cheaper to make." ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Too much! Wait till you have lived here longer. Look down the valley! See the cloud of a hundred chimneys that overshadows it! I tell you that the cloud of murder hangs thicker and lower than that over the heads of the people. It is the Valley of Fear, the Valley of Death. The terror is in the hearts of the people from the dusk to the dawn. Wait, young man, and you will learn for yourself." ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
