Wednesday Quote: Holmes

It’s Valentine’s Day, and what better time to feature a quote from the lovable Sherlock Holmes?  A self-described scientist who belittles sentiment, Holmes nonetheless often plays the role of knight-in-shining-armor, as in “The Speckled Band.”  I love this clip from the TV episode starring Jeremy Brett as Holmes and David Burke as Watson.  The dialogue is almost word-for-word from the book! 

Also, if you’re interested in more costume dramas from books, I talked about some of my favorites in this week’s Classics Considered episode.  Always on the lookout for recommendations, too.  🙂

As far as novels go, I’ve found an interesting read in Embers, by Hungarian author Sandor Marai.  “Interesting” may be an understatement; I can hardly put it down.  Look for that review in the upcoming week…
