All this disquisition upon superstition leads me up to the fact that Mr. Manson, our second mate, saw a ghost last night--or, at least, says that he did, which of course is the same thing. ~ The Captain of the Polestar by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Picnics are very dear to those who are in the first stage of the tender passion. ~ Our Derby Sweepstakes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Brothers are a blessing for one thing. There is no possibility of any young lady getting unreasonably conceited if she be endowed with them. ~ Our Derby Sweepstakes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle A thick, black cloud swirled before my eyes, and my mind told me that in this cloud, unseen as yet, but about to spring out upon my appalled senses, lurked all that was vaguely horrible, all that was monstrous and inconceivably wicked in the universe. Vague shapes swirled and swam amid the dark cloud-bank, each a menace and a warning of something coming, the advent of some unspeakable dweller upon the threshold, whose very shadow would blast my soul. ~ The Adventure of the Devil's Foot by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "To let the brain work without sufficient material is like racing an engine. It racks itself to pieces." ~ The Adventure of the Devil's Foot by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle To see their sons and daughters so flushed and healthy and happy, gave them also a reflected glow, and it was hard to say who had most pleasure from the game, those who played or those who watched. ~ Beyond the City by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle The sky was of the deepest blue, with a few white, fleecy clouds drifting lazily across it, and the air was filled with the low drone of insects or with a sudden sharper note as bee or bluefly shot past with its quivering, long-drawn hum, like an insect tuning-fork. ~ Beyond the City by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "God bless you for saying that!" cried Miss Harrison.

All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are all really necessary for our existence in the first instance. But this rose is an extra. Its smell and its color are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it. It is only goodness which gives extras, and so I say again that we have much to hope from the flowers." ~ The Naval Treaty by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
