Sherlock Holmes is one of my favorite characters. He was created by the famous writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He has been portrayed by famous actors like Jeremy Brett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey, Jr., and several others. He has several amazing stories that have inspired several other mystery writers.
Because of his fame, several people act as if Sherlock Holmes is a real person. His colleague Dr. John Watson records his detective cases. He has written down several quotes that Mr. Holmes has said through the ages.
Here are my favorite top 10 Sherlock Holmes quotes:
- “There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.” – The Boscombe Valley Mystery
- “Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last.” -His Last Bow
- “The game is afoot.” -Adventure of the Abbey Grange
- “No man burdens his mind with small matters unless he has some very good reason for doing so.” -A Study In Scarlet
- “Crime is common. Logic is rare. Therefore it is upon the logic rather than upon the crime that you should dwell.” -The Adventure of the Copper Beeches
- “To his eyes all seemed beautiful, but to me a tinge of melancholy lay upon the countryside, which bore so clearly the mark of the waning year, Yellow leaves carpeted the lanes and fluttered down upon us as we passed, The rattle of our wheels died away as we drove through drifts of rotting vegetation–sad gifts, as it seemed to me, for Nature to throw before the carriage of the returning heir of the Baskervilles.” -The Hound of the Baskervilles
- “To-morrow it will be but a dreadful memory.” -His Last Bow
- “How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?” -The Sign of Four
- “You see, but you do not observe. The distinction is clear.” -A Scandal In Bohemia
- “Let us hear the suspicions. I will look after the proofs.” -The Adventure Of The Three Students
