- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
"After 45 years this is all I Have done. I hold a beast, an angel and a madman in me, and my inquiry is as to their working and my problem is their subjugation and victory, down-throw and upheavel, and my effort is their self-expression."
- Dylan Thomas
"Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue.
Realize the strength, move on."
"Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable."
- Arthur Conan Doyle,
The Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
