Holmes' felt it was a waste of time to spend so much energy on a profitless task.

"...and I do not think it is a fair game to allow you for one unnecessary moment to waste your energies upon a profitless task. Therefore I am here to advise you this morning, and my advice to you is summed up in three words—abandon the case.”
