Yesterday was the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (the pen name of mathematician Charles Dodgson). Alice is a bizarre and quirky children's story that has been loved for a century and a half. What better reason than that to celebrate with a couple of quotations?
There are so many famously odd lines in the book, but I've chosen two I think apply to writers in particular...
"'Begin at the beginning,' the king said, very gravely, 'and go on till you come to the end: then stop.'"
"Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
