Lewis Carroll Quotes
- Everything has got a moral if you can only find it.
- For I do not believe God means us thus to divide life into two halves - to wear a grave face on Sunday, and to think it out-of-place to even so much as mention Him on a week-day. Do you think He cares to see only kneeling figures and to hear only tones of prayer - and that He does not also love to see the lambs leaping in the sunlight, and to hear the merry voices of the children, as they roll amoung the hay? Surely their innocent laughter is as sweet in His ears as the grandest anthem that ever rolled up from the "dim religious light" of some solemn cathedral?
- It is one of the great secrets of life that those things which are most worth doing, we do for others.
- Surely your gladness need not be the less for the thought that you will one day see a brighter dawn than this - when lovelier sights will meet your eyes than any waving trees or rippling waters - when angel-hands shall undraw your curtains, and sweeter tones than ever loving Mother breathed shall wake you to a new and glorious day - and when all the sadness, and the sin, that darkened life on this little earth, shall be forgotten like the dreams of a night that is past!
- Take care of the sense and the sounds will take care of themselves.

- Veesally: stumbled across jabberwocky and realized lewis carroll created a highly alliterative alt-vocabulary that works for our present alt-reality. i mean, c’mon. if carroll didn’t have the likes of margetg in mind when he made up “gallumphing” “burbled” & “uffish” . . .
