First mistake. James Moriarty isn’t a man at all. He’s a spider. A spider at the centre of a web, a criminal web with a thousand threads and he knows precisely how each and every single one of them dances.” 


The_Valley_of_FearMoriarty description in The Valley of Fear chapter one: The Warning

But in calling Moriarty a criminal you are uttering libel in the eyes of the law, and there lies the glory and the wonder of it. The greatest schemer of all time, the organizer of every devilry, the controlling brain of the underworld – a brain which might have might have made or marred the destiny of nations. That’s the man. But so aloof is he from general suspicion – so immune from criticism – so admirable in his management and self-effacement, that for those very words that you have uttered he could hale you to a court and emerge with you year’s  pension as a solatium for his wounded character.


Here are Sherlock Holmes describing one of the best villains of all time (in my opinion)!
