A Quote by Lewis Carroll on certainty, children, friendship, niceness, rules, and simplicity

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 stories 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: 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 too much from a bottle marked 'Poison,' it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later.

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)
