    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    They were in the jelly of youth.

You get here all my thoughts and opinions, always irresponsible and often contradictory or mutually exclusive, all my moods and vapours, all the varying reactions to environment of this jelly which is I.
    W.N.P. Barbellion (1889–1919)
