“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."

"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

“She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it).”
Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
