Sherlock Holmes’ Quotes

You see, but you do not observe.

Everything comes in circles… It’s all been done before, and will be again.

To let the brain work without sufficient material is like racing an engine. It racks itself to pieces.

The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.

What you do in this world is a matter of no consequence. The question is, what can you make people believe that you have done.

It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment.

I cannot live without brain-work. What else is there to live for?

Because it is my desire. Is that not enough?


* Vasili Livanov is a Russian actor.
The Russian version of Sherlock Holmes was filmed as the series “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson” between 1979 and 1986. Livanov’s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes is widely regarded as one of the best. In 2000 Livanov and his co-star Vitaly Solomin were voted the best impersonators of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson in a poll by the English press. Both Queen Elizabeth II and former PM Margaret Thatcher were reportedly fond of Livanov’s portrayal, and 20 February 2006 he was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) “for service to the theatre and performing arts”.
