A Quote by Lewis Carroll on language, french, english, queens, bargains, negotiation, questions, interrogation, nonsense, and logic

'Do you know Languages?  What's the French for fiddle-de-dee?'
'Fiddle-de-dee's not English,' Alice replied gravely.
'Who ever said it was?' said the Red Queen.
Alice thought she saw a way out of the difficulty this time.  'If you'll tell me what language "fiddle-de-dee" is, I'll tell you the French for it!' she exclaimed triumphantly.
But the Red Queen drew herself up rather stiffly, and said 'Queens never make bargains.'
'I wish Queens never asked questions,' Alice thought to herself.

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on chess, pawns, queens, advancement, queening, and promotion

'It's a great huge game of chess that's being played - all over the world - if this is the world at all, you know.  Oh, what fun it is!  How I wish I was one of them!  I wouldn't mind being a Pawn, if only I might join -- though of course I should like to be a Queen, best.'

She glanced rather shyly at the real Queen as she said this, but her companion only smiled pleasantly, and said, 'That's easily managed.  You can be the White Queen's Pawn, if you like, as Lily's too young to play; and you're in the Second Square to began with:  when you get to the Eighth Square you'll be a Queen - '
