Classic Story Teller: Lewis Carroll Quotes

By

Lewis Carroll is a master story teller. He uses expressive language to make fiction sound like reality. And in each episode, Lewis Carroll leaves a philosophical message to his readers. These profound philosophies truly make his story a source of great inspiration.

Through the Looking Glass:
The Queen: It's a poor sort of memory that only works backward.

Through the Looking Glass:
The Queen: Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Alice: It was much pleasanter at home, when one wasn't always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Alice had learnt several things of this sort in her lessons in the schoolroom, and though this was not a VERY good opportunity for showing off her knowledge, as there was no one to listen to her, still it was good practice to say it over.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
The Gryphon: The adventures first… explanations take such a dreadful time.

Through the Looking Glass:
Alice: 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!

Through the Looking Glass:
Alice: 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 the other paw, and pretended it hadn't heard the question.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Alice: Let me see: four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven is - oh dear! I shall never get to twenty at that rate! However, the Multiplication Table doesn't signify: let's try Geography. London is the capital of Paris, and Paris is the capital of Rome, and Rome - no, that's all wrong, I'm certain! I must have been changed for Mabel!

Through the Looking Glass:
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.

Lewis Carroll Quotes
If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there.

Through the Looking Glass:
The Queen: Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Alice: But it's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
And she tried to fancy what the flame of a candle is like after the candle is blown out, for she could not remember ever having seen such a thing.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
'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?

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
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!
They are waiting on the shingle -- will you come and join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance?

Through the Looking Glass:
A loaf of bread, the Walrus said,
Is what we chiefly need:
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are very good indeed --
Now if you're ready, Oysters, dear,
We can begin to feed!
