Arthur Conan Doyle
“I had no keener pleasure than in following Holmes in his professional investigations, and in admiring the rapid deductions, as swift as intuitions, and yet always founded on a logical basis with which he unraveled the problems which were submitted to him.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Complete Sherlock Holmes
