Intriguing Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Quotes

sir arthur conan doyle

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is arguably one of my favourite authors. He is responsible for what is now the Sherlock Holmes franchise, as well as many other literary works. Throughout his books and his characters, he has written numerous quotes, here are a few I find particularly interesting:

-“There are always some lunatics about. It would be a dull world without them.”-

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

-“His ignorance was as remarkable as his knowledge.”-

-“Any truth is better than indefinite doubt.”-

-“For strange effects and extraordinary combinations we must go to life itself, which is always far more daring than any effort of the imagination.”-

-“There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.”-

-“It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.”-

  1. I have only recently read Sherlock Holmes (I know disgraceful!) and I have to say it is one of the best books I have read. The quotes are definitely interesting especially ‘the obvious fact’ one 🙂
