"My mind rebels at stagnation - give me problems, give me work, give me the most obtuse cryptogram or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. I can dispense with artificial stimulants, but I abhor the dull routine of existence. That is why I have chosen my own particular world - I claim no credit in such cases, my name figures in no newspaper. The work itself, the pleasure of finding a field for my own peculiar powers, is my highest reward".
Sherlock Holmes
