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 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!

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on direction, journey, cats, misdirection, questions, place, and walking

'Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
'That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
'I don't much care where - ' said Alice.
'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
' - so long as I get somewhere,' Alice added as an explanation.
'Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, 'if you only walk long enough.'

A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on bitterness, choice, focus, path, point of view, questions, and reality

A cucumber is bitter. - Throw it away. -
There briars in the road? - Turn aside from them.
This is enough.  Do not add, And why were such things made in the world?

A Quote by Madeleine L'Engle on schooling, education, and questions

Schooling, instead of encouraging the asking of questions, too often discourages it.
