Chance is a woman, my friends, and she has her eye always upon a gallant Hussar. ~ The Crime of The Brigadier by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle A fine horse or a beautiful woman, I cannot look at them unmoved, even now when seventy winters have chilled my blood. ~ The Crime of The Brigadier by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle As the body rolled to the ground Tarzan of the Apes placed his foot upon the neck of his lifelong enemy and, raising his eyes to the full moon, threw back his fierce young head and voiced the wild and terrible cry of his people. ~ Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs There is left in every man something of the primeval love of stalking. ~ Fraternity by John Galsworthy "To die will be an awfully big adventure." ~ Peter Pan by James M. Barrie It was indeed like old times when, at that hour, I found myself seated beside him in a hansom, my revolver in my pocket, and the thrill of adventure in my heart. Holmes was cold and stern and silent. As the gleam of the street-lamps flashed upon his austere features, I saw that his brows were drawn down in thought and his thin lips compressed. I knew not what wild beast we were about to hunt down in the dark jungle of criminal London, but I was well assured, from the bearing of this master huntsman, that the adventure was a most grave one. ~ The Adventure of the Empty House by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle A good soldier in an enemy's country should everywhere and at all times be on the alert. It has been one of the rules of my life, and if I have lived to wear grey hairs it is because I have observed it. And yet upon that night I was as careless as a foolish young recruit who fears lest he should be thought to be afraid. ~ The Adventures of Gerard by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Do you know anything on earth which has not a dangerous side if it is mishandled and exaggerated? " ~ The Land of Mist 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 "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
