    It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    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. I can dispense then with artificial stimulants. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    ‘No, no; the real name,’ said Holmes sweetly. ‘It is always awkward doing business with an alias.’
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    ‘Excellent!’ I cried.
    ‘Elementary,’ said he.
