Favorite Sherlock Holmes Personality Quotes

1. "Do you remember," he said, "one of Holmes's little scores over Watson about the number of steps up to the Baker Street lodging? Poor old Watson had been up and down them a thousand times, but he had never thought of counting them, whereas Holmes had counted them as a matter of course, and knew that there were seventeen. And that was supposed to be the difference between observation and non-observation. Watson was crushed again, and Holmes appeared to him more amazing than ever. Now, it always seemed to me that in that matter Holmes was the ass, and Watson the sensible person. What on earth is the point of keeping in your head an unnecessary fact like that? If you really want to know at any time the number of steps to your lodging, you can ring up your landlady and ask her."
Author: A.A. Milne
2. "One night--it was on the twentieth of March, 1888--I was returning from a journey to a patient(for I had now returned to civil practice), when my way led me through Baker Street. As I passed the well-remembered door...I was seized with a keen desire to see Holmes again, and to know how he was employing his extraordinary powers. His rooms were brilliantly lit, and, even as I looked up, I saw his tall, spare figure pass twice in a dark silhouette against the blind. He was pacing the room swiftly, eagerly, with his head sunk upon his chest and his hands clasped behind him. To me, who knew his every mood and habit, his attitude and manner told their own story. He was at work again. He had risen out of his drug-created dreams and was hot upon the scent of some new problems."
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
3. "It was a wild, tempestuous night, towards the close of November. Holmes and I sat together in silence all the evening, he engaged with a powerful lens deciphering the remains of the original inscription upon a palimpsest, I deep in a recent treatise upon surgery. Outside the wind howled down Baker Street, while the rain beat fiercely against the windows. It was strange there, in the very depths of the town, with ten miles of man's handiwork on every side of us, to feel the iron grip of Nature, and to be conscious that to the huge elemental forces all London was no more than the molehills that dot the fields. I walked to the window, and looked out on the deserted street. The occasional lamps gleamed on the expanse of muddy road and shining pavement. A single cab was splashing its way from the Oxford Street end."
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
4. "No man is fit to educate unless he feels each pupil an end in himself, with his own rights and his own personality, not merely a piece in a jigsaw puzzle, or a soldier in a regiment, or a citizen in a State. Reverence for human personality is the beginning of wisdom, in every social question but above all in education."
Author: Bertrand Russell
5. "To me, what makes an artist is a unique personality that they're not afraid to let show."
Author: Blake Shelton
6. "I realised that if you get yourself labeled as the funny one, people don't look any further. I've used that as I've got older. It's controlling: I decide what part of my personality you're seeing. I don't want you to look at me, I really don't. I don't want you to comment on my clothes, my hair or the way I look."
Author: Catherine Tate
7. "So bene che ciò non si confà all'immagine della mia persona che ho sempre descritto nei resoconti dei più brillanti casi del mio amico Sherlock Holmes. Ma la verità pura e semplice è che io ci sarei morto, su quelle labbra."
Author: Cristina Bruni
8. "Sorry," I said, realizing I was taking my frustrations out on her. "I'm still getting over Soph," I said, referring to my old prep school friend. Sophie Price was the most beautiful girl you'd ever met. Seriously. Take it from someone who's met Bar Refaeli in person. Soph was even more stunning. Especially since she'd had a personality makeover. I'd never regret anything as much as I would not making her fall in love with me. "You can't make anyone fall, Spence. Either they do or they don't." "I said that out loud?" "Duh and it's been two years, Spencer. You seriously need to get over her. She's with that Ian guy anyway, right?" "Right." "That hot South African guy named Ian," she concluded. "Thanks.""That hot saffy named Ian who gives his life to mutilated Ugandan orphans and worships the ground Sophie walks on."I stopped and glared at her. "That'll do, Bridge."

10. "To the Jacobins of this epoch [the French Revolution], as well as to those of our times, this popular entity constitutes a superior personality possessing attributes peculiar to the gods of never having to answer for their actions and never making a mistake. Their wishes must be humbly acceded to. The people may kill, burn, ravage, commit the most frightening cruelties, glorify their hero today and throw him into the gutter tomorrow, it is all the same; the politicians will not cease to vaunt the people's virtues and to bow to their every decision."
Author: Gustave Le Bon

"The final relationship that cannot be ignored is with disrupters:They are individuals who cause trouble for sport - inciting oppositionto management for a variety of reasons, most of them petty.Usually these people have good performance - that's their cover - and sothey are endured or appeased.A company that manages people well takes disrupters head-on.First they give them very tough evaluations, naming their bad behaviourand demanding it change.Usually it won't. Disrupters are a personality type.If that's the case, get them out of the way of people trying to do theirjobs.They're poison."
Author: Jack Welch
12. "In a nutshell, the process they [abusers in a ritual abuse group] use on survivors is designed to:break the will and personality of the person until they become as nothing... with no will of their own...no identity...then they... rebuild the person n& shape their will in order to...try and make the person one of them...thus gaining powerIf abusers hold all the power, becoming one of them can, for some, be the only means of survival. However, this doesn't always work, instead survivors often find ways of regaining their own power and fighting back."
Author: Laurie Matthew

Though barely able to speak, he ordered them to bring five different options for the mask and he would pick a design he liked."
Author: Walter Isaacson
