According to Holmes

“I have a turn for both observation and deduction.”

“I can discover facts, Watson, but I cannot change them.”

“”There is nothing like first-hand evidence.”

“Any truth is better than indefinite doubt.”

“You see, but you do not observe.”

“The little things are infinitely the most important.”

“It is better to learn wisdom late than never to learn it at all.”

“Crime is common. Logic is rare.”

“Human nature is a strange mixture, Watson.”

“There is nothing more stimulating than a case where everything goes against you.”

“I see no more than you, but I have trained myself to notice what I see.”

“I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.”

“I cannot live without brain-work. What else is there to live for?”

“I never guess. It is a shocking habit–destructive to the logical faculty.”

“You know my method. It is founded upon the observation of trifles.”

“A man should keep his little brain-attic stocked with all the furniture that he is likely to use, and the rest he can put away in the lumber-room of his library, where he can get it if he wants it.”
