“I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

“Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.

Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
