I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. ~ A Scandal in Bohemia by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle We must leave the discovery of this mystery, like all others, to time, and accident, and Heaven's pleasure. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens To surround anything, however monstrous or ridiculous, with an air of mystery, is to invest it with a secret charm, and power of attraction which to the crowd is irresistible. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens Beyond the fence the forest stood up spectrally in the moonlight, and through that dim stir, through the faint sounds of that lamentable courtyard, the silence of the land went home to one's very heart—its mystery, its greatness, the amazing reality of its concealed life. ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad "The criminal is the creative artist; the detective only the critic." ~ The Innocence of Father Brown (The Blue Cross) by G. K. Chesterton
