Quote: Lewis Carroll

 

"I'm just one hundred and one, five months and a day."

"I can't believe that!" said Alice.


"Can't you?" the Queen said in a pitying tone. "Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes."


Alice laughed. "There's not use trying," she said: "one can't believe impossible things."

"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
