福尔摩斯探案全集--巴斯克维尔的猎犬 - 兔灰灰 - 兔灰灰的小窝
  

It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but you are a conductor of light. Some people without possessing genius have a remarkable power of stimulating it. 

In a modest way I have combated evil, but to take on the Father of Evil himself would, perhaps, be too ambitious a task. 

I knew that seclusion and solitude were very necessary for my friend in those hours of intense mental concentration during which he weighed every particle of evidence, constructed alternative theories, balanced one against the other, and made up his mind as to which points were essential and which immaterial. 

Say, rather, into the region where we balance probabilities and choose the most likely. It is the scientific use of the imagination, but we have always some material basis on which to start our speculation. 

Beyond, two copses of trees moaned and swung in a rising wind. A half moon broke through the rifts of racing clouds. In its cold light I saw beyond the trees a broken fringe of rocks, and the long, low curve of the melancholy moor. 

I can still remember your complete indifference as to whether the sun moved round the earth or the earth round the sun. 

It was all dim and vague, but always there is the dark shadow of crime behind it. 

Luck had been against us again and again in this inquiry, but now at last it came to my aid. 

The last red streaks had faded away in the west and night had settled upon the moor. A few faint stars were gleaming in a violet sky. 

One cannot always have the success for which one hopes. An investigator needs facts and not legends or rumours. It has not been a satisfactory case. 

That’s lucky for him–in fact, it’s lucky for all of you, since you are all on the wrong side of the law in this matter. 

I know what is good when I see it, and I see it now. 

I think we might employ it in getting some dinner, and then, Lestrade, we will take the London fog out of your throat by giving you a breath of the pure night air of Dartmoor. 

As long as I have my trousers I have a hip-pocket, and as long as I have my hip-pocket I have something in it. 

It is a formidable difficulty, and I fear that you ask too much when you expect me to solve it. The past and the present are within the field of my inquiry, but what a man may do in the future is a hard question to answer.
