Layout Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - 1865 Layout
"Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin, but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever say in my life!" 
   - Alice

"If it had grown up it would have made a dreadfully ugly child: but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think." 
   - Alice

"I know SOMETHING interesting is sure to happen whenever I eat or drink anything; so I'll just see what this bottle does."

   - Alice

"'Come, there's no use in crying like that!' said Alice to herself, rather sharply; 'I advise you to leave off this minute!' She generally gave herself very good advice (though she very seldom followed it)." 
   - Alice

"It would be so nice if something made sense for a change." 
   - 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

"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!" 
   - Alice

"'Curiouser and curiouser!' cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English)." 
   - Alice

"In my youth I feared it might injure the brain; But, now that I'm perfectly sure I have none, Why, I do it again and again." 
   - Father William

   - King of Hearts

"It was all very well to say 'Drink me,' but the wise little Alice was not going to do that in a hurry. 'No, I'll look first,' she said, 'and see whether it's marked "poison" or not'; for she had read several nice little histories about children who had got burnt, and eaten up by wild beasts and other unpleasant things, 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; and she had never forgotten that, if you drink much from a bottle marked 'poison,' it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later.

However, this bottle was NOT marked 'poison,' so Alice ventured to taste it, and finding it very nice, (it had, in fact, a sort of mixed flavour of cherry- tart, custard, pine-apple, roast turkey, toffee, and hot buttered toast,) she very soon finished it off."
 
   - Narration

"If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does." 
   - The Duchess

"Speak English! I don't know the meaning of half those long words, and, what's more, I don't believe you do either!" 
   - The Eaglet

"Well, I never heard it before, but it sounds uncommon nonsense." 
   - The Mock Turtle

"Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop." 
   - The Red King

"Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." 
   - The Red 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!" 
   - The Red Queen

"That's just what I complain of! You should have meant! What do you suppose is the use of child without any meaning? Even a joke should have some meaning -- and a child's more important than a joke, I hope. You couldn't deny that, even if you tried with both hands." 
   - The Red Queen

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."
 
   - The Walrus
