It was worth a wound — it was worth many wounds — to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain. All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment of revelation.
- "The Adventure of the Three Garridebs," Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The reader may set me down as a hopeless busybody, when I confess how much this
man stimulated my curiosity, and how often I endeavoured to break through the
reticence which he showed on all that concerned himself. Before pronouncing
judgment, however, be it remembered, how objectless was my life, and how little
there was to engage my attention. My health forbade me from venturing out unless
the weather was exceptionally genial, and I had no friends who would call upon
me and break the monotony of my daily existence. Under these circumstances, I
eagerly hailed the little mystery which hung around my companion, and spent
much of my time in endeavouring to unravel it.
- "A Study in Scarlet," Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

My companion flushed up with pleasure at my words, and the earnest way in which I uttered them. I had already observed that he was as sensitive to flattery on the score of his art as any girl could be of her beauty.

My friend Dave made a book of addictive math puzzles. Go buy one now!

Say out loud: I have tried and struggled and have not found a way, but I am open to help, and I intend to keep working to create change for myself.
