A Quote by Lewis Carroll on children, speaking, meaning, truth, honesty, cya, and jokes

'Always speak the truth - think before you speak - and write it down afterwards.'
'I'm sure I didn't mean - ' Alice was beginning, but the Red Queen interrupted her impatiently.
'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.

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)
