Alice's Adventures In Wonderland

By Lewis Carroll

QUOTATION: “When I used to read fairy tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one! There ought to be a book written about me, that there ought! And when I grow up, I’ll write one—but I’m grown up now,” she added in a sorrowful tone: “At least there’s no room to grow up any more here.”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. IV, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where—” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“Mas long as I get somewhere,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice and the Cheshire Cat, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. VI, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “You are old, father William,” the young man said,
“And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head
Do you think, at your age, it is right?”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician. Alice, in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, “Advice from a Caterpillar,” (1865).

QUOTATION: “Write that down,” the King said to the jury, and the jury eagerly wrote down all three dates on their slates, and then added them up, and reduced the answer to shillings and pence.
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, “Who Stole the Tarts?” (1865).

QUOTATION: “A likely story indeed!” said the Pigeon, in a tone of the deepest contempt. “I’ve seen a good many little girls in my time, but never one with such a neck as that! No, no! You’re a serpent; and there’s no use denying it. I suppose you’ll be telling me next that you never tasted an egg!”
“I have tasted eggs, certainly,” said Alice, who was a very truthful child; “but little girls eat eggs quite as much as serpents do, you know.”
“I don’t believe it,” said the Pigeon; “but if they do, then they’re a kind of serpent: that’s all I can say.”
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. V, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: All in the golden afternoon
Full leisurely we glide;
For both our oars, with little skill,
By little arms are plied,
While little hands make vain pretense
Our wanderings to guide.
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, epigraph, Macmillan (1865).

QUOTATION: “I couldn’t afford to learn it,” said the Mock Turtle with a sigh. “I only took the regular course.”
“What was that?” inquired Alice.
“Reeling and Writhing, of course, to begin with,” the Mock Turtle replied; “and then the different branches of Arithmetic—Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision.”
“I never heard of ‘Uglification,’” Alice ventured to say.
ATTRIBUTION: Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, ch. IX, Macmillan (1865).

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.
