Sherlock: “I’ve lived most of my life with the firm conviction that romantic love is an illusion.  It is a futile hedge against the existential terror that is our own singularity… …I feel liberated.  I am now and forever post-love, and, as such, I am free to pursue a life of meaning.”

Holmes: “I think it’s sad you’ve given up.  I think you have a lot to share if you cared to.  You shouldn’t be the only one who knows you.”
