The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

To all the world he was the man of violence, half animal and half demon; but to her he always remained the little wilful boy of her own girlhood, the child who had clung to her hand. Evil indeed is the man who has not one woman to mourn him. ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "The devil's agents may be of flesh and blood, may they not?" ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle To that Providence, my sons, I hereby commend you, and I counsel you by way of caution to forbear from crossing the moor in those dark hours when the powers of evil are exalted. ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle A hound it was, an enormous coal-black hound, but not such a hound as mortal eyes have ever seen. Fire burst from its open mouth, its eyes glowed with a smouldering glare, its muzzle and hackles and dewlap were outlined in flickering flame. Never in the delirious dream of a disordered brain could anything more savage, more appalling, more hellish be conceived than that dark form and savage face which broke upon us out of the wall of fog. ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Look at Sir Charles's death! That was bad enough, for all that the coroner said. Look at the noises on the moor at night. There's not a man would cross it after sundown if he was paid for it. Look at this stranger hiding out yonder, and watching and waiting! What's he waiting for? What does it mean? It means no good to anyone of the name of Baskerville." ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle There is nothing so deceptive as the distance of a light upon a pitch-dark night, and sometimes the glimmer seemed to be far away upon the horizon and sometimes it might have been within a few yards of us. ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "As you value your life or your reason keep away from the moor." ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "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." ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Now is the dramatic moment of fate, Watson, when you hear a step upon the stair which is walking into your life, and you know not whether for good or ill." ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
