“the impossible, it pleases me always.”

 

 - Hercules Poirot



“It is impossible as I state it, and therefore I must in some respect have stated it wrong.”


"Remarkable, but you must not confuse the unlikely with the impossible."

 

- Sherlock Holmes


 

“The detective’s aim in investigating a crime scene, is not to explain something but rather to discover clues that indirectly enable him to explain something- namely who committed the crime. His investigation uncovers and clarifies the relations among the elements found in the crime scene environment.”

 

- Adrian Piper “What, exactly, is the Idea of Artistic Research?”
