The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes quotes

Mrs. Toller: Mr. Fowler, being a persevering gentleman, as a good sailor should be, blockaded the house.
Sherlock Holmes: And having met you, succeeded by certain arguments, metallic and otherwise, in convincing you that your interests were the same as his?
Mrs. Toller: Mr. Fowler was a very kind-spoken, free-handed gentleman.

Sherlock Holmes: My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems; give me work. Give me the most abstruse cryptogram, the most intricate analysis, and I'm in my proper atmosphere. Then I can dispense with artificial stimulants. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave mental exultation. That is why I have chosen my own profession, or rather, created it, for I am the only one in the world.
Dr. John Watson: The only unofficial detective?
Sherlock Holmes: The only unofficial consulting detective.

Sherlock Holmes: You will find me a very dangerous companion now.

Dr Watson: What'll become of her?
Sherlock Holmes: After questioning, nothing. It's not a crime to have a cold heart and not a single shred of compassion.

Sherlock Holmes: When a doctor goes wrong, he is the first of criminals. He has nerve. He has knowledge. Palmer and Pritchard were among the heads of their profession; this man strikes even deeper.

Sherlock Holmes: (voiceover as his last letter to Watson) Goodbye, and good luck, and believe me to be, my dear fellow, very sincerely yours, Sherlock Holmes.

Dr. John Watson: Won't you stay the night?
Sherlock Holmes: No, it's too dangerous for you if I stay here.
