A Quote by Lewis Carroll on children, christmas, happiness, peace, play, wishes, new year, fairies, and good will

Christmas-Greetings [From a Fairy to a Child]

Lady, dear, if Fairies may
  For a moment lay aside
Cunning tricks and elfish play,
  'Tis at happy Christmas-tide.

We have heard the children say -
  Gentle children' whom we love -
Long ago on Christmas Day,
  Came a message from above.

Still, as Christmas-tide comes round,
  They remember it again -
Echo still the joyful sound
  "Peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Yet the hearts must childlike be
  Where such heavenly guests abide;
Unto children, in their glee,
  All the year is Christmas-tide.

Thus, forgetting tricks and play
  For a moment, Lady dear,
We would wish you, if we may,
  Merry Christmas, glad New Year!

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on day, good, and understanding

"It's very good jam," said the Queen. "Well, I don't want any to-day, at any rate." "You couldn't have it if you did want it," the Queen said. "The rule is jam tomorrow and jam yesterday but never jam to-day." "It must come sometimes to "jam to-day,""Alice objected. "No it can't," said the Queen. "It's jam every other day; to-day isn't any other day, you know." "I don't understand you," said Alice. "It's dreadfully confusing."

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on commitment, crime, and punishment

"There's the King's Messenger. He's in prison now, being punished: and the trial doesn't begin until next Wednesday: and of course the crime comes last of all."
"Suppose he never commits the crime?" said Alice.
"That would be all the better, wouldn't it?" the Queen said.

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on argument, fatherhood, laws, lawyers, talking, and speech

"In my youth," said his father, "I look to the law,
  And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw
  Has lasted the rest of my life."

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on belief, day, impossibility, laughter, practice, trying, breakfast, discipline, and effort

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.
