Waiting for Alice

Yes, that’s it!” said the Hatter with a sigh, “it’s always tea time.
Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
Who’s been painting my roses red? WHO’S BEEN PAINTING MY ROSES RED?
Who dares to taint
With vulgar paint
The Royal flower bed?

My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that.
Every adventure requires a first step.
Curiouser and curiouser!
No wonder you’re late. Why this watch is exactly two days slow.
Alice: How long is forever?
Rabbit: Sometimes, just one second.

"Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop."

The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright
—And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.
The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
After the day was done
—“It’s very rude of him,” she said,
”To come and spoil the fun!”

The sea was wet as wet could be,
The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead
—There were no birds to fly.
In a Wonderland they lie
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die.
Well that was the silliest tea party I ever went to! I am never going back there again!
