30. "[On writing more Sherlock Holmes stories.] ‘I don't care whether you do or not,' said Bram. ‘But you will, eventually. He's yours, till death do you part. Did you really think he was dead and gone when you wrote "The Final Problem"? I don't think you did. I think you always knew he'd be back. But whenever you take up your pen and continue, heed my advice. Don't bring him here. Don't bring Sherlock Holmes into the electric light. Leave him in the mysterious and romantic flicker of the gas lamp. He won't stand next to this, do you see? The glare would melt him away. He was more the man of our time than Oscar was. Or than we were. Leave him where he belongs, in the last days of our bygone century. Because in a hundred years, no one will care about me. Or you. Or Oscar. We stopped caring about Oscar years ago, and we were his bloody *friends.* No, what they'll remember are the stories. They'll remember Holmes. And Watson. And Dorian Gray."

Min kone utleverte ham på forlangende mine skytevåpen. Jeg måtte da skrive til politimesteren efterpå at jeg også hadde to store pistoler fra siste olympiaden i Paris, han kunne hente dem når han syntes. Samtidig skrev jeg at husarresten vel ikke var bokstavelig å forstå, jeg hadde jo jordbruk vidt omkring fra gården, og det trengte tilsyn. Efter noen tid kom lensmannsbetjenten i Eide og hentet de to pistoler."

Both of them, come to that--Damian's art is infused with mystic symbols and traditions."Holmes' voice answered two inches away from my ear, making me jerk and spray a handful of maps across the floor. "Religion can be a dangerous thing, it is true," he remarked darkly, and went out again."

39. "Sì, è possibile trapiantare l'ipofisi di uno Spinoza o di qualche altro povero diavolo e fabbricare da un cane un essere intelligentissimo. Ma perché farlo? Me lo dica lei, per favore: perché fabbricare artificialmente gli Spinoza quando una qualunque donnetta è capace di sfornarne uno quando vuole. Madame Lomonosov ha messo al mondo a Cholmogory quel suo celeberrimo figlio. Dottore, è la stessa umanità che ci pensa e, grazie all'evoluzione, genera ostinatamente, ogni anno, dalla gentaglia più triviale, decine di geni eminenti, abbellendo il globo terrestre."
