Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

Short witty Holmes at his best

The Adventure of the Dying Detective by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

If this is your first read of Sherlock Holmes, you will be disappointed.  This tale occurs quite late in the series and only serves as a very short story showcasing Holmes's taste for the dramatic.  A surprise at the end makes for a hearty chuckle at Holmes's wit.
