Famous quotes containing the words lewis carroll and/or carroll:

    And would you be a poet
    Before you’ve been to school?
    Ah, well! I hardly thought you
    So absolute a fool.
    First learn to be spasmodic—
    A very simple rule.
    For first you write a sentence,
    And then you chop it small;
    Then mix the bits, and sort them out
    Just as they chance to fall:
    The order of the phrases makes
    No difference at all.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

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