Irresistible Sherlock Holmes quote

Despite the naming of this blog, I'm not a particular fan of Conan Doyle. But I loved this reflection (before it's time) on 'thinking outside the box':

"I think we'll shut that window again, if you don't mind. It is a singular thing, but I find that a concentrated atmosphere helps a concentration of thought. I have not pushed it to the length of getting into a box to think, but that is the logical outcome of my conviction." (The Hound of the Baskervilles, 1901)
