Famous quotes by conan doyle:

    What a lovely thing a rose is!... Our highest assurance of the goodness of Providence seems to me to rest in the flowers. All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are all really necessary for our existence in the first instance. But the rose is an extra. Its smell and its colour are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it. It is only goodness which gives extras.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    From a drop of water a logician could infer the possibility of an Atlantic or a Niagara without having seen or heard of one or the other.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    ‘Excellent!’ I cried.
    ‘Elementary,’ said he.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    As Cuvier could correctly describe a whole animal by the contemplation of a single bone, so the observer who has thoroughly understood one link in a series of incidents should be able to accurately state all the other ones, both before and after.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    The most difficult crime to track is the one which is purposeless.
