Life and Death are but an illusion.
Happy and Sad are just a state of mind.
Love and Compassion alleviates the suffering
Of All sentient Beings — those who have been
our Mothers and our Fathers.
To recognize the interconnectedness of all beings
Is to know peace.

"I've had one great romance in my life. One would be hard-pressed to call her a girlfriend, and even harder pressed to call that relationship a success. I never felt the need beyond that. Part of the reason is that relationships are hard for me. You sensed that I was making an extra effort to make things work with you. In that you were correct. But you presumed that that was because you are different. It is not. It's because I am different. And because you are the rare woman I have come across to whom I believe the extra effort is worthwhile."

"The day Phil got arrested you walked me home. We talked. I liked it....talking to you...Can we do it again?"

" I am very happy to see you."

"I've been thinking about you. Spending time with you that day....I enjoyed it. That doesn't happen very often. Also you are very handsome. And you smell nice. A lot of people don't."

"You are a remarkable woman. I assumed I wasn't the first one to notice that."

"Would you like to get some coffee with me?" - "I'd be delighted."

One of Sherlock's statements especially stuck out to me. I got the feeling as if it was more addressed to the audience than to Fiona:

"Personally I abhor the typical."

Congratulations, UP, and DOST!

  1. A good butler should not need to be told.
  2. You are the only woman I know who likes to think herself cold and selfish and grand. Most of us spend our lives trying to hide it.
  3. Brilliant careers, rich lives are seldom led without just an element of love.
  4. Makes peace with your sister and then make peace with yourself.
  5. I believe in love.
