Sherlock Holmes Quotes About Mystery

I am not going to lie: I believe in Sherlock. I am Sherlocked. I know the game is afoot. Now that I have that out of the way, I thought I would share with you some quotes by one of my favorite all time characters, as they are so true and so blunt in nature.

Part of Sherlock’s lack of human connection, genius, and lack of concern for feelings and relationships, is that he gets to the heart of the matter, and speaks the truth in ways that others would not dare.

Let me share with you some of my favorite thoughts from the man of mystery over the years.
