Arthur Conan Doyle

“Do you know, Watson," said he, "that it is one of the curses of a mind with a turn like mine that I must look at everything with reference to my own special subject. You look at these scattered houses, and you are impressed by their beauty. I look at them, and the only thought which comes to me is a feeling of their isolation and of the impunity with which crime may be committed there.”


Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories, Volume I
