To All (from on the road):
I always carry a copy of the Canon with me while on a trip. I am researching statements about our beloved Doctor for a future purpose. I have a few now, however, that I would like to share with you:
“I know, my dear Watson, that you share my love of all that is bizarre and outside the convention and humdrum routine of everyday life. You have shown your relish for it by the enthusiasm with which you have chronicled it, and if you excuse me saying so, somewhat to embellish my own little adventures.” (REDH)
Coming from a less than perfect situation, words like the ones above and so many other words and tales gave me fuel to keep going.
“I am bound to say in all the accounts you have been so good as to give of my own small achievements, you have habitually underrated you own abilities. It may be that you yourself are not luminous, but you are a conductor of light. Some people without possessing genius have a remarkable power of stimulating it.” (HOUN)
Oh! To be able to fit the above description of our Doctor.
