BC: "I quite agree with you," said the Duchess; "and the moral of that is--'Be what you would seem to be'--or if you'd like it put more simply--'Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.'" ....and that Geoffrey is some wonderful advise! Love, your Aunt Carrie Lee
FC: An Alice in Wonderland Play | A night with Geoffrey Oliver
1: "Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop."
2: "We're all mad here."
3: "Well, if it isn't my favorite lunatics."
6: "Oh, how I wish I could shut up like a telescope! I think I could, if I only knew how to begin."
7: "It would be so nice if something made sense for a change."
10: "I don't believe there's an atom of meaning in it."
11: "Curiouser and curiouser"
12: "In my world, the books would be nothing but pictures."
13: "When I get home I shall write a book about this place...if I ever do get home"
14: "If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does."
15: "Why don't you start at the beginning? Yes, and when you reach the end...stop."
17: "To put it bluntly, a weed."
18: "If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" | "You used to be much more..."muchier." You've lost your muchness." | Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said: "one can't believe impossible things." "I daresay 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 breakfast."
19: "Twinkle, twinlkle, little bat! How I wonder what you're at." | "Take care of the sense, and the sounds w ill take care of themselves." | "Tut, tut, child! Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it." | "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 things." "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master - - that's all."
20: "You have a regrettably large head! I would very much like to hat it!"
21: "Well, Ive often seen a cat without a grin; but a grin without a cat! Its the most curious thing I ever say in my life!"
22: "Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction." "This is impossible...Only if you believe it is." "What an idea. What a mad, crazy, wonderful idea."
24: "No wonder your late. Why, this watch is exactly two days slow."
27: "Gentlemen, the only way to achieve the impossible, is to believe it's possible."
