I am looking for a quote- I think its from Sherlock Holmes- something along the lines of;
When everything else has been exhausted, what ever is left must be the truth-

Not quite it- but that's the gist of it- anyone know what I'm talking about?

Thanks!

Occam's Razor. Holmes used and paraphrased it often.

(entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity)
All things being equal, the simplest solution tends to be the best one.

When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. (The Sign of the Four)
