Alice's Adventures In Wonderland

By Lewis Carroll

QUOTATION: “If everybody minded their own business,” the Duchess said in a hoarse growl, “the world would go round a deal faster than it does.”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, “Pig and Pepper,” (1865).

QUOTATION: The Queen turned crimson with fury, and, after glaring at her for a moment like a wild beast, began screaming “Off with her head! Off with—”
“Nonsense!” said Alice loudly and decidedly, and the Queen was silent.
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. VIII, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “Curiouser and curiouser!” cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English).
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. II, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “Then you should say what you mean,” the March Hare went on.
“I do,” Alice hastily replied; “at least—at least I mean what I say—that’s the same thing, you know.” “Not the same thing a bit!” said the Hatter. “Why you might just as well say that ‘I see what I eat’ is the same thing as ‘I eat what I see’!”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British logician, author, humorist. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, chapter 6 (1865).

On the fact that propositions in A-form do not simply convert.

QUOTATION: Don’t let him know she liked them best,
For this must ever be
A secret kept from all the rest,
Between yourself and me.
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British poet. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

QUOTATION: “And how many hours a day did you do lessons?” said Alice, in a hurry to change the subject.
“Ten hours the first day,” said the Mock Turtle: “nine the next, and so on.”
“What a curious plan!” exclaimed Alice.
“That’s the reason they’re called lessons,” the Gryphon remarked: “because they lessen from day to day.”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. IX, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “Let the jury consider their verdict,” the King said, for about the twentieth time that day.
“No, no!” said the Queen. “Sentence first—verdict afterwards.”
“Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “The idea of having the sentence first!”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. XII, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: Alice opened the door and found that it led into a small passage, not much larger than a rat hole: she knelt down and looked along the passage into the lovliest garden you ever saw. How she longed to get out of that dark hall, and wander about among those beds of bright flowers and those cool fountains, but she could not even get her head through the doorway.
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. I, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “Well, I should like to be a little larger, Sir, if you wouldn’t mind,” said Alice: “three inches is such a wretched height to be.”
“It is a very good height indeed!” said the Caterpillar angrily, rearing itself upright as it spoke (it was exactly three inches high).
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. V, Macmillan (1865).
