Cunning of women
The author ridicules women saying that women are cunning and artful creatures, who can make a mess of a job. “Women are never to be entirely trusted – not the best of them.” And men shouldn’t trust them at all.
“But love is an emotional thing, and whatever is emotional is opposed to that true cold reason which I place above all things. I should never marry myself, lest I bias my judgment.”
The author ridicules love. Sherlock confirms that love is a mental disease. And that’s why he wants to beware of this illness.
“Stand at the window here. Was ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world?”
Sherlock Holmes is heavy-hearted, because he doesn’t have the brain work now. And the world is awful to him. He wants to go to a better world, but certainly it is a spiteful joke.
