“My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems; give me work. Give me the most abstruse cryptogram, the most intricate analysis, and I’m in my proper atmosphere. Then I can dispense with artificial stimulants. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave mental exultation. That is why I have chosen my own profession, or rather, created it, for I am the only one in the world.” – Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett), The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes (“A Scandal In Bohemia”) on Mystery!
