Alice’s Adventures in WonderLand and Through the Looking Glass
“Alice took up the fan and gloves, and, as the hall was very hot, she kept fanning herself all the
time she went on talking: “Dear, dear! How queer everything is to-day! And yesterday things
went on just as usual. I wonder if I‟ve been changed in the night? Let me think: was I the same
when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I‟m
not the same, the next question is, Who in the world am I? Ah, that‟s the great puzzle!” And she
began thinking over all the children she knew that were of the same age as herself, to see if she
could have been changed for any of them.” (pg.13)
“„Edwin and Morcar, the earls of Mercia and Northumbria, declared for him: and even Stigand,
the patriotic archbishop of Canterbury, found it advisable – ‟”
“Found what?” said the Duck.
“Found it,” the Mouse replied rather crossly: “of course you know what „it‟ means.”
“I know what „it‟ means well enough, when I find a thing,” said the Duck: “it‟s generally a frog
or a worm. The question is, what did the archbishop find?”” (pg.20)
““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.
“ – so 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.”
Alice felt that this could not be denied, so she tried another question. “What sort of people live
“In that direction,” the Cat said, waving its right paw round, “lives a Hatter: and in that
direction,” waving the other paw, “lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they‟re both mad.”
“But I don‟t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can‟t help that,” said the Cat: “we‟re all mad here. I‟m mad. You‟re mad.”
“How do you know I‟m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn‟t have come here.”
Alice didn‟t think that proved it at all; however, she went on “And how do you know that you‟re
mad? “To begin with,” said the Cat, “a dog‟s not mad. You grant that?”
“I suppose so,” said Alice.
“Well, then,” the Cat went on, “you see, a dog growls when it‟s angry, and wags its tail when it‟s
pleased. Now I growl when I‟m pleased, and wag my tail when I‟m angry. Therefore I‟m mad.””
““Why is a raven like a writing-desk?”
“Come, we shall have some fun now!” thought Alice. “I‟m glad they‟ve begun asking riddles. – I
believe I can guess that,” she added aloud.
“Do you mean that you think you can find out the answer to it?” said the March Hare.
“Exactly so,” said Alice.
“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
“Not the same thing a bit!” said the Hatter. “You might just as well say that „I see what I eat‟ is
the same thing as „I eat what I see‟!”
“You might just as well say,” added the March Hare, “that „I like what I get‟ is the same thing as
„I get what I like‟!”
“You might just as well say,” added the Dormouse, who seemed to be talking in his sleep, “that
„I breathe when I sleep‟ is the same thing as „I sleep when I breathe‟!”” (pg.61)
““You‟re thinking about something, my dear, and that makes you forget to talk. I can‟t tell you
just now what the moral of that is, but I shall remember it in a bit.”
“Perhaps it hasn‟t one,” Alice ventured to remark.
“Tut, tut, child!” said the Duchess. “Everything‟s got a moral, if only you can find it.” And she
squeezed herself up closer to Alice‟s side as she spoke…the moral of that is – „Oh, ‟tis love, ‟tis
love, that makes the world go round!‟”
“Somebody said,” Alice whispered, “that it‟s done by everybody minding their own business!”
“Ah, well! It means much the same thing,” said the Duchess, digging her sharp little chin into
Alice‟s shoulder as she added, “and the moral of that is – „Take care of the sense, and the sounds
will take care of themselves.‟”
“How fond she is of finding morals in things!” Alice thought to herself.” (pg.80)
““That‟s the most important piece of evidence we‟ve heard yet,” said the King, rubbing his
hands; “so now let the jury – ”
“If any one of them can explain it,” said Alice, (she had grown so large in the last few minutes
that she wasn‟t a bit afraid of interrupting him,) “I‟ll give him sixpence. I don‟t believe there‟s an
atom of meaning in it.”
The jury all wrote down on their slates, “She doesn‟t believe there‟s an atom of meaning in it,”
but none of them attempted to explain the paper.
“If there‟s no meaning in it,” said the King, “that saves a world of trouble, you know, as we
needn‟t try to find any.” (pg.108)
““I know what you‟re thinking about,” said Tweedledum; “but it isn‟t so, nohow.”
“Contrariwise,” continued Tweedledee, “if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be;
but as it isn‟t, it aint. That‟s logic.”” (pg.159)
“”He‟s dreaming now,” said Tweedledee, “and what do you think he‟s dreaming about ?”
Alice said, “Nobody can guess that.”
“Why, about you!” Tweedledee exclaimed, clapping his hands triumphantly. “And if he left off
dreaming about you, where do you suppose you‟d be?”
“Where I am now, of course”, said Alice.
“Not you!” Tweedledee retorted contemptuously. “You‟d be nowhere. Why, you‟re only a sort
of thing in his dream!” “If that there King was to wake”, added Tweedledum, “you‟d go out -
bang! – just like a candle!”
“I shouldn‟t”, exclaimed Alice indignantly. “Besides, if I‟m only a sort of thing in his dream,
what are you, I should like to know.”
“Ditto,” said Tweedledum.
“Ditto, ditto” cried Tweedledee. He shouted this so loud that Alice couldn‟t help saying, “Hush!
You‟ll be waking him, I‟m afraid, if you make so much noise.”
“Well, it‟s no use your talking about waking him,” said Tweedledeum, “when your only one of
the things in his dream. You know very well you‟re not real.”
“I am real, said Alice, and began to cry.” (pp.166/7)
“Alice laughed. “There‟s no use trying,” she said, “one can‟t believe impossible things.”
“I dare say you haven‟t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did
it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I‟ve believed as many as six impossible things before
“”I don‟t know what you mean by „glory,‟” Alice said.
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don‟t – till I tell you. I meant „there‟s a
nice knock-down argument for you!‟”
“But „glory‟ doesn‟t mean „a nice knock-down argument,‟” Alice objected.
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I
choose it to mean – neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master, that‟s all.” (pg.190)
““I‟m sure I didn‟t mean ----” Alice was beginning, but the Red Queen interrupted her
“That‟s just what I complain of! You should have meant. What do you suppose is the use of a
child without any meaning? Even a joke should have some meaning - and a child‟s more
important than a joke, I hope.” (pg.226)
“”Now Kitty, let‟s consider who it was that dreamed it all. This is a serious question, my dear,
and you should not go on licking your paw like that – as if Dinah hadn‟t washed you this
morning! You see Kitty, it must have been either me or the Red King. He was part of my dream
of course – but then I was part of his dream too! Was it the red King?...Which do you think it
