Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes
“Am dining at Goldini's Restaurant, Gloucester Road, Kensington. Please come at once and join me there. Bring with you a jemmy, a dark lantern, a chisel, and a revolver. S. H." It was a nice equipment for a respectable citizen to carry through the dim, fog-draped streets.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes

Ese expediente suyo de irrumpir en los pensamientos de un amigo con una frase oportuna, tras un cuarto de hora de silencio, tiene mucho de histriónico y superficial. No le niego, desde luego, talento analítico, pero dista infinitamente de ser el fenómeno que Poe parece haber supuesto.”
