Famous quotes containing the word arthur:

    The lowest and vilest alleys of London do not present a more dreadful record of sin than does the smiling and beautiful countryside.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    Detection is, or ought to be, an exact science, and should be treated in the same cold and unemotional manner. You have attempted to tinge it with romanticism, which produces much the same effect as if you worked a love-story or an elopement into the fifth proposition of Euclid.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    O unbelievers,
    I serve not what you serve
    and you are not serving what I serve,
    nor am I serving what you have served,
    neither are you serving what I serve.
    To you your religion, and to me my religion!
    Qur’An. The Unbelievers, 109:1-5, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
