Dr. James Mortimer Quotes

Three of the best book quotes from Dr. James Mortimer
  1. #1
    “When Dr. Mortimer had finished reading this singular narrative he pushed his spectacles up on his forehead and stared across at Mr. Sherlock Holmes. The latter yawned and tossed the end of his cigarette into the fire.
    “Well?” said he.
    “Do you not find it interesting?”
    “To a collector of fairy-tales.”
  2. #2
    “I must thank you,” said Sherlock Holmes, “for calling my attention to a case which certainly presents some features of interest. I had observed some newspaper comment at the time, but I was exceedingly preoccupied by that little affair of the Vatican cameos, and in my anxiety to oblige the Pope I lost touch with several interesting English cases.”
  3. #3
    “It is not my intention to be fulsome, but I confess that I covet your skull.”
