    ā€œI consider that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it.

A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skillful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.ā€ Page 17 What do you put in the your minds attic?

    I finished A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of the Four, but gave up a few pages into the The Hound of the Baskervilles. These books are fine, but not amazing. I appreciate their place in literary history, but I don't think they've aged particularly well. Their depictions of women and people of color were problematic enough to ruin the stories a bit for me. Also I found the pacing strange. In the first two stories I read, the mystery was solved at about the half way point and then explanation and I finished A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of the Four, but gave up a few pages into the The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Their depictions of women and people of color were problematic enough to ruin the stories a bit for me. Also I found the pacing strange. In the first two stories I read, the mystery was solved at about the half way point and then explanation and background took up the second half of the story. I think I might like the Sherlock short stories more than the longer novel-length ones, which hopefully wouldn't have the problems with pacing.
