Those were the words constantly spoken by the world's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes (and his friend and sometimes roommate, Dr. Watson) were created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887. Here are a collection of leadership wisdom from the master sleuth himself:
- "Work is the best antidote for sorrow."
- "It is stupidity rather than courage to refuse to recognize danger when it is close upon you."
- "Nothing clears up a case so much as stating it to another person."
- "There is nothing so unnatural as the commonplace."
- "To let the brain work without sufficient material is like racing an engine. It racks itself to pieces."
- "Life is infinitely stranger than anything the mind of a man could invent."
- "You do occasionally find a carrion crow among the eagles."
- "Everything comes in circles. The old wheel turns, and the same spokes come up. It's all been done before."
- "There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact."
- "It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts."
- "Let us see in the future how high you can rise."
