The rest of me is a mere appendix. Therefore, it is the brain I must consider.”
“Life is full of whimsical happenings, Watson.”

“You will agree that exceptions are invidious.”

“We all have neglected opportunities to deplore.”

“When the other fellow has all the trumps, it saves time to throw down your hand.”

“These anticipations of the future are morbid. Why not give ourselves up to the unrestrained enjoyment of the present?”
