Alice's Adventures In Wonderland

By Lewis Carroll

QUOTATION: How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British poet. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

QUOTATION: ‘Tis the voice of the Lobster; I heard him declare,
‘You have baked me too brown, I must sugar my hair.’
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British poet. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

QUOTATION: “Come, there’s no use in crying like that!” said Alice to herself rather sharply. “I advise you to leave off this minute!” She generally gave herself good advice (though she very seldom followed it).
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. I, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “Well!” thought Alice to herself. “After such a fall as this, I shall think nothing of tumbling down-stairs! How brave they’ll all think me at home! Why, I wouldn’t say anything about it, even if I fell off the top of the house!” (Which was very likely true.)
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. I, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: The Queen had one way of settling all difficulties, great or small. “Off with his head!” she said without even looking around.
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. VIII, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “Will you walk a little faster?” said a whiting to a snail,
“There’s a porpoise close behind us, and he’s treading on my
tail.
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British poet. Add subject: danger? Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

QUOTATION: Alice felt dreadfully puzzled. The Hatter’s remark seemed to her to have no sort of meaning in it, and yet it was certainly English. “I don’t quite understand you,” she said, as politely as she could.
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. VII, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “Contrariwise,” continued Tweedledee, “if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British logician, author, humorist. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, chapter 4 (1865).

Logic is largely a matter of linguistic convention.

QUOTATION: “I have answered three questions, and that is enough,”
Said his father; “don’t give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I’ll kick you downstairs!”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British poet. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

QUOTATION: “In my youth,” said his father, “I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life.”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British poet. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
