“ I see nobody on the road,” said Alice.
“ I only wish I had such eyes,” the King remarked in a fretful tone.
“ To be able to see Nobody! And at that distance too!
Why, it’s as much as I can do to see real people, by this light!”

“ Who did you pass on the road? ” the King went on,
   holding out his hand to the Messenger for some more hay.
“ Nobody,” said the Messenger.
“ Quite right,” said the King: “ this young lady saw him too. So of course Nobody walks slower than you.”
“ I do my best,” the Messenger said in a sullen tone.
“ I’m sure nobody walks much faster than I do !”
“ He can’t do that,” said the King “or else he’d have been here first…”


Through The Lookin-Glass, L. Carroll
…All because they would not remember
the simple rules their friends had taught them:
Such as, that a red-hot poker will burn you
if you hold it too long;
and that, if you cut your finger very deeply
with a knife it usually bleeds…


“Take some more tea ,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone: “so I can’t take more.”
“You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter:
“it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”…


“Contrariwise,” continued Tweedledee,
“if it were so, it might be; and it were so, it would be;
but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.”


“But there’s no use going back to yesterday
‘cause I was a different person then.”
