The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez Quote by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Outside the wind howled down Baker Street, while the rain beat fiercely against the windows. It was strange there in the very depths of the town, with ten miles of man's handiwork on every side of us, to feel the iron grip of Nature, and to be conscious that to the huge elemental forces all London was no more than the molehills that dot the fields. ~ The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez
