Sir Arthur Conan Doyle by Google

Thanks to Google.. seems like May 22 was the birthday of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930), the author of Sherlock Holmes sequels.

Well it happens that I was a great fan of Sherlock Holmes, I read most of his detective stories in Chinese translated version when I was in primary school.

I spent quite some time in high school to find his complete series in original English but not much luck. And those days internet usage was not as convenient as nowadays, so I missed a great part of the Sherlock Holmes stories.

Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan DoyleIt’s until my uni days that I finally found the complete 56 illustrated short stories of Sherlock Holmes in a hard cover book, I can still recall the excitement when I got that book in my hands.. that’s kinda coool.

Frankly I can’t remember much of Sherlock Holmes stories nowadays.. but it reminded me something that I was passionate about when I was younger, and that I will do my best to achive what I really wanted.

I hope that I could keep that kind of passionate and determination in my everyday life up till the end, life is useless without passion.. must live our life to the fulliest.

Happy birthday, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    Jee, Jees, Jeff or Jesus? Whatever.. so people do use Jee as an exclamation for Jesus? I don’t know.
