Quotation of the Week (32/2010)


“…`Be what you would seem to be' -- or if you'd like it put more simply -- Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.'"

   "I think I should understand that better," Alice said very politely, "if I had it written down: but I'm afraid I can't quite follow it as you say it."

   "That's nothing to what I could say if I chose," the Duchess replied, in a pleased tone.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 9


Since I spent so much time in Wonderland last week, I just had to pick my Quotation of the Week from it, too!

I’ve now watched the film as well (on DVD) but I think I’ll get back to that in a separate post.

I do really love the picture you chose, as well. So you saw the Johnny Depp alice? I can't wait to hear about that! I will watch if your recommendation is really good.

I gave up on that one. What I made of it the first time around I cannot recall.

Just 'cos I'm quoting it doesn't mean I understand a word of it... LOL...
