My Sherlock Holmes Mug

One of many fun, interesting, unique artifacts I have collected along the way.

Quotations on the mug:

-When you have eliminated the impossible,whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

-Be aware: All great criminals have a complex mind.

-Singularity is almost invariably a clue. The more featureless and commonplace a crime is, the more difficult it is to bring it home.

-One should always look for a possible alternative, and provide against it.

-Never make exceptions. An exception proves the rule.

-There is nothing so unnatural as the commonplace.

-Nothing clears up a case so much as stating it to another person.

-There is nothing so important as trifles.

-It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence.

-Don’t just see: observe.

-The little things are infinitely the most important.

-Any truth is better than indefinite doubt.

-It is of the highest importance in the art of detection to be able to recognize, out of a number of facts, which are incidental and which vital.

-When a fact appears to be opposed to a long train of deduction, it invariably proves to be capable of bearing some other interpretation.

-Never guess. It is a shocking habit–destructive to the logical faculty.

-It is easier to know than to explain why I know.

-Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius.

-There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.

-There is no branch of deductive science which is so important and so much neglected as the art of tracing footsteps.

-There can be no question of the value of exercise before breakfast.
