10 Quotes
It is a great thing to start life with a small number of really good books which are your very own.
Anything is better than stagnation.
When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.
It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.
I have frequently gained my first real insight into the character of parents by studying their children.
Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius.
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.
Where there is no imagination there is no horror.
The love of books is among the choicest gifts of the gods.
Arthur Conan Doyle was a Scottish physician and author who is best known for his Sherlock Holmes novels. He was a prolific writer who wrote fantasy and science fiction stories, plays, romances, poetry, non-fiction, and historical novels.
