say what I mean

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"!'

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)
