Sherlock Holmes for Traders and Analysts

In Quotes on July 10, 2012 at 7:04 pm

Twenty five quotes from Sherlock Holmes for traders and financial analysts:

1) We balance probabilities and choose the most likely. It is the scientific use of the imagination. (The Hound of the Baskervilles, 1902)

2) “Data! Data! Data!” he cried impatiently. “I can’t make bricks without clay.” (The Adventure of the Copper Beeches, 1892)

3) There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact. (The Boscombe Valley Mystery, 1892)

4) It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment. (A Study in Scarlet, 1887)

5) It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (A Scandal in Bohemia, 1892)

6) It is an old maxim of mine that when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. (The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet, 1892)

7) One should always look for a possible alternative, and provide against it. It is the first rule of criminal investigation. (The Adventure of Black Peter, 1905)

8) I never guess. It is a shocking habit — destructive to the logical faculty. (The Sign of the Four, 1890)

9) It is of the highest importance in the art of detection to be able to recognize, out of a number of facts, which are incidental and which vital. Otherwise your energy and attention must be dissipated instead of being concentrated. (The Reigate Puzzle, 1893)

10) “It is of the first importance,” he cried, “not to allow your judgment to be biased by personal qualities. A client is to me a mere unit, a factor in a problem. The emotional qualities are antagonistic to clear reasoning.” (The Sign of the Four, 1890)

11) “They say that genius is an infinite capacity for taking pains,” he remarked with a smile. “It’s a very bad definition, but it does apply to detective work.” (A Study in Scarlet, 1887)
