"Is it not? Is it not? Breadth of view, my dear Mr. Mac, is one of the essentials of our profession. The interplay of ideas and the oblique uses of knowledge are often of extraordinary interest." ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Exactly. She does not shine as a wife even in her own account of what occurred. I am not a whole-souled admirer of womankind, as you are aware, Watson, but my experience of life has taught me that there are few wives having any regard for their husbands who would let any man's spoken word stand between them and that husband's dead body. Should I ever marry, Watson, I should hope to inspire my wife with some feeling which would prevent her from being walked off by a housekeeper when my corpse was lying within a few yards of her." ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "One dumb-bell, Watson! Consider an athlete with one dumb-bell. Picture to yourself the unilateral development - the imminent danger of a spinal curvature. Shocking, Watson, shocking!" ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Dear me, Watson, is it possible that you have not penetrated the fact that the case hangs upon the missing dumb-bell?" ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "When you have one of the first brains of Europe up against you, and all the powers of darkness at his back, there are infinite possibilities." ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Can a husband ever carry about a secret all his life and a woman who loves him have no suspicion of it? I knew it by his refusal to talk about some episodes in his American life. I knew it by certain precautions he took. I knew it by certain words he let fall. I knew it by the way he looked at unexpected strangers." ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Then, with your permission, we will leave it at that, Mr. Mac. The temptation to form premature theories upon insufficient data is the bane of our profession." ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle A long series of sterile weeks lay behind us, and here at last there was a fitting object for those remarkable powers which, like all special gifts, become irksome to their owner when they are not in use. ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself; but talent instantly recognizes genius. ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Yes, I have a turn both for observation and for deduction. The theories which I have expressed there, and which appear to you to be so chimerical are really extremely practical -- so practical that I depend upon them for my bread and cheese." ~ A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
