Mother-wit

Clouds of Witness ( Annotated): (Lord Peter Wimsey #2) - Dorothy Leigh Sayers

“My dear child, you can give it a long name if you like, but I’m an old-fashioned woman and I call it mother-wit, and it’s so rare for a man to have it that if he does you write a book about him and call him Sherlock Holmes.”
