“There are no things man was not meant to know. There are, perhaps, things man is too dumb to figure out, but that's a different problem.”
Michael Kurland

“Holmes had no sisters, and a man who grows up without sisters has few defences against those wiles, those innocent wiles of body, speech and motion, with which nature has provided young females in its blind desire to propagate the species.”
Michael Kurland, The Sherlock Holmes Megapack: 25 Modern Tales by Masters: 25 Modern Tales by Masters

“A man,” he gathered his ideas, “A man should strive to do something larger than himself. To cure disease, or eradicate hunger or poverty or crime.” “Ah!” I said. “Noble thoughts.” I fancied that I could hear the lovely voice of Miss Lucy earnestly saying that, or something similar, to Holmes within the week. When a man is suddenly struck by noble ambitions it is usually a woman who does the striking. But I thought it would be wiser not to mention this deduction,”
