LEWIS CARROLL
(PSEUDONYM OF CHARLES L. DODGSON)
English author
(1832 - 1898)
  CHECK READING LIST (2)  

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, `and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice `without pictures or conversation?'
  So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.
      - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
        [Books (First Lines)]

Lastly, she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her childhood: and how she would gather about her other little children, and make their eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even with the dream of Wonderland of long ago: and how she would feel with all their simple sorrows, and find a pleasure in all their simple joys, remembering her own child-life, and the happy summer days.
      - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
        [Books (Last Lines)]

The different branches of Arithmetic--Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision.

"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!
    See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance:

      - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, a song
        [Fish]

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
  How neatly spreads his claws,
    And welcomes little fishes in
      With gently smiling jaws!
      - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (ch. 2)
        [Crocodiles : Fish]

Take care of the sense and the sounds will take care of themselves.
      - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (ch. IX)

"Tut, tut, child," said the Duchess. "Everything's got a moral if only you can find it."

"Reeling and Writhing, of course, to begin with," the Mock Turtle replied, "and the different branches of Arithmetic--Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision."
      - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (ch. X)

They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care;
  They pursued it with forks and hope;
    The threatened its life with a railway-share;

          We can begin to feed!
      - Through the Looking Glass,
        The Walrus and the Carpenter [Eating]

"Can you do addition?" the White Queen asked. "What's one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one?" "I don't know," said Alice. "I lost count."
      - Through the Looking Glass [Arithmetic]

"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, Kitty? You were his wife, my dear, so you ought to know--oh, Kitty, do help to settle it! I'm sure your paw can wait!" But the provoking kitten only began on on the other paw, and pretended it hadn't heard the question.
    Which do you think it was?
      - Through the Looking Glass
        [Books (Last Lines)]

Oh, frabjous day! Callooh. Callay!

One thing was certain, that the white kitten had had nothing to do with it--it was the black kitten's fault entirely. For the white kitten had been having its face washed by the old cat, for the last quarter of an hour (and bearing it pretty well, considering); so you see that it couldn't have had any hand in the mischief.
