Like all other arts, the Science of Deduction and Analysis is one which can only be acquired by long and patient study, nor is life long enough to allow any mortal to attain the highest possible perfection in it. Before turning to those moral and mental aspects of the matter which present the greatest difficulties, let the inquirer begin by mastering more elementary problems. Let him, on meeting a fellow-mortal, learn at a glance to distinguish the history of the man, and the trade or profession to which he belongs. Puerile as such an exercise may seem, it sharpens the faculties of observation, and teaches one where to look and what to look for. By a man’s finger-nails, by his coat-sleeve, by his boots, by his trouser-knees, by the callosities of his forefinger and thumb, by his expression, by his shirt-cuffs–by each of these things a man’s calling is plainly revealed. That all united should fail to enlighten the competent inquirer in any case is almost inconceivable- A Study in Scarlet
“He’s (Christopher Tietjens) just sort of unfathomably generous and patient and yet really quietly courageous. He doesn’t suffer hypocrisy or fools gladly. He doesn’t betray himself or his ideals for any quick fixes. He’s just a good human being. I’ve got a very big affection for that man. If I can live a life half as good as his, I will know I have done alright.” - Benedict Cumberbatch.
Colours meme: Celadon for Inexperience
(Celadon is a pale shade of green. A glaze of this color is commonly used in Chinese and Korean pottery. It can be associated with a pale sea-green pigment though the style originally was made with much darker pigments. Being similar to the color of new growth on plants, it can indicate immaturity, youthfulness and inexperience. It allows us to see things from a new perspective, to make a fresh start.)
