"As a rule, when I have heard some slight indication of the course of events, I am able to guide myself by the thousands of other similar cases which occur to my memory. In the present instance I am forced to admit that the facts are, to the best of my belief, unique." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "I know, my dear Watson, that you share my love of all that is bizarre and outside the conventions and humdrum routine of everyday life. You have shown your relish for it by the enthusiasm which has prompted you to chronicle, and, if you will excuse my saying so, somewhat to embellish so many of my own little adventures." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Beyond the obvious facts that he has at some time done manual labour, that he takes snuff, that he is a Freemason, that he has been in China, and that he has done a considerable amount of writing lately, I can deduce nothing else." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "And now, Doctor, we've done our work, so it's time we had some play. A sandwich and a cup of coffee, and then off to violin-land, where all is sweetness and delicacy and harmony, and there are no red-headed clients to vex us with their conundrums." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "You may place considerable confidence in Mr. Holmes, sir," said the police agent loftily. "He has his own little methods, which are, if he won't mind my saying so, just a little too theoretical and fantastic, but he has the makings of a detective in him. It is not too much to say that once or twice, as in that business of the Sholto murder and the Agra treasure, he has been more nearly correct than the official force." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "As a rule," said Holmes, "the more bizarre a thing is the less mysterious it proves to be. It is your commonplace, featureless crimes which are really puzzling, just as a commonplace face is the most difficult to identify." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "My life is spent in one long effort to escape from the commonplaces of existence. These little problems help me to do so." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "I hardly looked at his face. His knees were what I wished to see." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "It is quite a three pipe problem." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
