You cannot live your life to please others. The choice must be yours.— Anne Hathaway
Promising Alice In Wonderland Tea quotations
It takes all the running you can do just to keep in the same place.
The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.
Yes, that's it! Said the Hatter with a sigh, it's always tea time.
I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then
Then you should say what you mean," the March Hare went on.
"I do," Alice hastily replied; "at least--at least I mean what I say--that's the same thing, you know." "Not the same thing a bit!" said the Hatter. "You might just as well say that "I see what I eat" is the same thing as "I eat what I see"!
Alice: This is impossible. The Mad Hatter: Only if you believe it is.
"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."
Why is a raven like a writing desk?
Mad Hatter: Would you like a little more tea? Alice: Well, I haven't had any yet, so I can't very well take more. March Hare: Ah, you mean you can't very well take less. Mad Hatter: Yes. You can always take more than nothing.
One can't believe impossible things.

Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.
I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, sir,' said Alice, 'Because I'm not myself you see.

'Have some wine,' the March Hare said in an encouraging tone.
Alice looked around the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. 'I don't see any wine,' she remarked. 'There isn't any,' said the March Hare.
Who ARE You?" This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation.
Alice replied, rather shyly, I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.
I think I should understand that better, if I had it written down: but I can't quite follow it as you say it.
Mad Hatter: “Why is a raven like a writing-desk?” “Have you guessed the riddle yet?” the Hatter said, turning to Alice again. “No, I give it up,” Alice replied: “What’s the answer?” “I haven’t the slightest idea,” said the Hatter
Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin,' thought Alice 'but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing i ever saw in my life!
We haven't any and you're too young.
I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
I've learned a few things from the tea party, both the political one and the one in Alice in Wonderland.

From the second, I learned that England has some sort of substance called treacle.
I have read various articles on the fourth dimension, the relativity theory of Einstein, and other psychological speculation on the constitution of the universe; and after reading them I feel as Senator Brandegee felt after a celebrated dinner in Washington.
