A Quote by Lewis Carroll on words, language, linguistics, verbs, and adjectives

They've a temper, some of them - particularly verbs, they're the proudest - adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs...

It's no use now to pretend to be two people!  Why, there's hardly enough of me left to make one respectable person!

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on happiness, choice, and gladness

I wish I could manage to be glad!  Only I never can remember the rule.  You must be very happy, living in this wood, and being glad whenever you like!

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on words, language, mastery, and meaning

'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less.'
'The question is,' said Alice, 'whether you can make words mean so many different things.'
'The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, 'which is to be master - that's all.'

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on meaning, speech, linguistics, syntax, mean what i say, say what i mean, and manifestation

'Then you should say what you mean,' the March Hare went on.
'I do,' Alice hastily replied; 'at least - at least I mean what I say - that's the same thing, you know.'
'Not the same thing a bit!' said the Hatter.  'You might just as well say that "I see what I eat" is the same thing as "I eat what I see"!'
'You might just as well say,' added the March Hare, 'that "I like what I get" is the same thing as "I get what I like"!'

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on questions, wonder, change, mystery, self-perception, and identity

Dear, dear!  How queer everything is to-day!  And yesterday things went on just as usual.  I wonder if I've been changed in the night?  Let me think:  was I the same when I got up this morning?  I almost think I can remember feeling a little different.  But if I'm not the same, the next question is, Who in the world am I?  Ah, that's the great puzzle!
