Top 10 Quotes From Alice in Wonderland With the Explanations

Top 10 Quotes From Alice in Wonderland With the Explanations

Alice in Wonderland is a tale from Lewis Carroll who wrote it in 1864. The story has been such a huge success ever since and many movies and plays have been made based on it. This fairytale continues to have a great fan base. Its popularity is only increasing with big Hollywood directors and stars making yet another adaptation of the story. This time it will be directed by Tim Burton and Johnny Depp will be the outrageous character called the Mad Hatter.

The conversations between the incredible characters, which include people, animals and playing cards, are eccentric and funny. Some of their phrases have become extremely famous, some of them are considered absurd and some are clearly making fun of the Victorian era.

Here are the top 10 quotes with explanations where in the story they appear. They are in descending order beginning from number 10 and going to number one, the most famous quote of all.

Number 10 spot is given to Eaglet:

Alice and many animals and birds along with a Duck, Dodo, Lory and Eaglet swam from a lake that was actually a pool of Alice’s tears. While at the shore they were discussing how to get dry. Dodo was talking in business terms about adjourning the meeting and adopting more energetic remedies. To this Eaglet called out this quoted sentence:

“Speak English! I don’t know the meaning of half those long words, and I don’t believe you do either!” -Eaglet

Number 9 is a quote from Alice herself.

This takes place during the court scene. Alice argues with the Queen of Hearts about the order of a verdict and a sentence, and then Alice realizes that she is her normal size again and does not need to care what the Queen says. This is why she yells out:

“You’re nothing but a pack of cards!” -Alice

 Number 8 is from the Duchess during the game of croquet after she is released from prison to take part in the game. Alice is quietly thinking about how pepper and other spices affect people.

The Duchess is trying to remember what kind of a moral there is in thinking and not speaking. Alice thinks that there is no moral in it. Therefore the Duchess teaches Alice that:

“Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.” -The Duchess

Number 7 is a quote from the Mock Turtle. He, the Gryphon and Alice are at the sea shore. Alice tells them about her adventures of the day and how she was repeating a poem to the Caterpillar and how the words came out all wrong. The Gryphon is very interested and asks Alice to repeat a poem called “‘TIS THE VOICE OF THE SLUGGARD”‘. Of course the words come out all different again. This is what the Mock Turtle calls it:

“Well, I never heard it before, but it sounds uncommon nonsense.” -The Mock Turtle

At number 6 is a quote from the White Rabbit. Alice follows the White Rabbit into the rabbit hole and finds herself in a long corridor. She sees the White Rabbit hurrying down the passage. Alice sprints after him just in time to hear the White Rabbit say:

“Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it’s getting!” -White Rabbit

This quote is actually made very famous by Disney Films. They adapted the quote into a song by White Rabbit: “I’m late, I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!”

Number 5 place is given to a famous quote from the Queen of Hearts. She uses this expression quite often in the story. One time is when Alice meets the Queen for the first time. After Alice has introduced herself, the Queen asks her about the three playing card gardeners lying on the ground. But because Alice does not know them and expresses that to the Queen quite casually, the Queen of Hearts gets furious and screams to Alice:

“Off with her head!” -Queen of Hearts 

At number 4 is a quote from the King of Hearts. This happens at the hearing in court while the King asks the White Rabbit to read a set of verses in a letter, written by the prisoner to somebody. The White Rabbit does not know where to begin.

“Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.” -The King

On the third spot is quite an odd question by the Mad Hatter.

Alice is at the March Hare’s house and the Mad Hatter is there with Dormouse as well. They are having a tea party. The March Hare and Alice get into an argument about Alice’s right to join the tea party. Then the Mad Hatter makes Alice even more furious by telling her she needs a haircut. Of course Alice declares that to be rude, but the Mad Hatter answers her with a riddle:

“Why is a raven like a writing desk?” -The Mad Hatter

Here we are, getting closer to the best quotes of them all. At number 2 position is a short and famous exclamation from Alice.

Alice eats a cake and expects something peculiar to happen to her. And finally her neck grows and grows so much that in the end she does not even see her own feet. Alice is so surprised that for a moment she forgets to speak good English and cries out:

“Curiouser and curiouser.” -Alice

Finally, number one, the most famous Alice in Wonderland quote.

This quote comes from a conversation between Cheshire Cat and Alice. The grinning Cheshire Cat is giving directions to Alice and tells what sort of people live in each direction in the woods.

Then he discloses as a matter of fact that:

“We’re all mad here.” -Cheshire Cat

Ways to Get Auto Insurance Quotes – Take Your Pick

Ways to Get Auto Insurance Quotes – Take Your Pick

There are a variety of methods when it comes to getting auto insurance quotes, and many of them are good options. To decide which is best for you, you need to get an idea of what’s out there. You could do all this work on your own, but it can be overwhelming, and there are other options available.

Some people want to take care of things face to face, or at least over the phone. In this case, you can contact insurance agencies yourself to get quotes from them. Keep in mind, though, that it will take a while for you to get even one quote while you could be getting several in the same amount of time.

One way to save time in that way is to take advantage of the internet. Online, you can find several websites that will get you several different quotes at once. All you need to do is provide your details, and the agent you work with will get your results from others like them to provide rates on what you need.

In doing this, you’re giving work to others that would normally have taken you a lot of time. Also, in having to go through companies one at a time, you might find that you forgot one – that happened to have the best deals available. This way, you can compare and know you’ll find the lowest price.

That’s not to say there isn’t anything wrong with this choice. If you’re especially concerned about your privacy, it might not be worth it for you. The company will have to look at various aspects of your vehicle and personal history. The process is very safe, but still makes some people uncomfortable.

If neither calling a major company nor working online appeals to you, there’s one last option in working with an independent agent. These people do much the same work as those online, but they’ll also try to negotiate good rates. It’s the best of both world – speed and multiple quotes, but also the ability to speak to real people.

Family Quotes – What More Could a Family Be About?

Family Quotes – What More Could a Family Be About?

Ask anybody out there, what his priorities are in life – Fame, Fortune and Money, and there is a chance that he is going to say, money, because with that, fame and fortune comes quite easily. On the other hand, if you add “family” to these 3 options given above, there is a chance that 99% of the people out there are going to put their family first, especially if they happen to be ladies!

The main reason is because nature has fashioned a woman to be the cherisher and the nurturer of the family, while the man is the Hunter and the preserver and protector of his little family. That is the natural rule which has come down through thousands of years, and even if a person happens to be a comparatively modern sophisticate scoffing at the idea of taking on the responsibility of a family, one knows that in his subconscious, he has a picture of a tight little compact little loving unit, which belongs to him and to which he belongs. That is what a family is all about.

They tell a story about a multimillionaire businessman who died and the whole city came to pay its respects. One of his business competitors, met the son and said, “We are really going to miss your father. You see, I knew your father well.” And the son replied, “You happen to be really lucky there, because I never did.”

So, you might be an extremely successful person in your own right upon Wall Street, but if your little child does not come running out to welcome his daddy at the end of the day to be swung up in his father’s arms and held there lovingly and protectively, you come in the “nothing” category in the business of life.

Many people are under the impression that taking on the responsibility of the family is quite tiresome, but they do not know that it takes a real responsible person to be a father or a mother. It is very easy to be a biological father or a biological mother, but the real mother and the real father is that person who stays awake all night when the baby is teething or colicky, teaches him right from wrong, is there to hold him when he takes his first steps, and in every way shows that he is there to cherish and protect the little one from harm.

One of the most memorable family quotes is said by a man who did not believe in family, because of an unhappy childhood. But he found a good, loyal and faithful woman to love him unconditionally. The moment he picked up his little baby, he took him to the window and said, “Well son, welcome to the world! Look out onto your land out there and see that it is good. I am here to teach you what your mama has taught me, and we shall both protect you, when you need our help. I will teach you to be a good, just and fair man, my son. Amen.”

What more could a family be about?

11 Robert Kennedy Quotes to Commemorate the Birthday of an American Legend

11 Robert Kennedy Quotes to Commemorate the Birthday of an American Legend

November 20th marks the birth date of Robert F. Kennedy and I thought it would be a fitting tribute to celebrate with 11 Robert Kennedy quotes. No matter which side of the political fence you reside on, you have to admit the Kennedy family is an intriguing bunch. Robert F. was no exception to that kind of fascination. Here are 11 quotes to help commemorate the day of his birth.

1. “Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on.”

2. “I was the seventh of nine children. When you come from that far down you have to struggle to survive.”

3. “Ultimately, America’s answer to the intolerant man is diversity, the very diversity which our heritage of religious freedom has inspired.”

4. “All of us, from the wealthiest and most powerful of men, to the weakest and hungriest of children, share one precious possession: the name American.”

5. “On this generation of Americans falls the burden of proving to the world that we really mean it when we say all men are created free and are equal before the law. All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don’t. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.”

6. “One-fifth of the people are against everything all the time.”

7. “Moral courage is a more rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.”

8. “The greatest truth must be recognition that in every man, in every child is the potential for greatness.”

9. “It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.”

10. “I believe that, as long as there is plenty, poverty is evil.”

11. “It is not enough to understand, or to see clearly. The future will be shaped in the arena of human activity, by those willing to commit their minds and their bodies to the task.”

Robert F. Kennedy was quite the revolutionary thinker. Sure, there were some who opposed his views, but many more embraced them. Let’s commemorate his birthday this year with the above 11 Robert Kennedy quotes.

Eight Motivational Quotes From Nadia Comaneci and Carl Lewis

Eight Motivational Quotes From Nadia Comaneci and Carl Lewis

Two of the greats, Carl Lewis and Nadia Comaneci, changed the face of the summer Olympic games forever. Carl Lewis is noted as the sole athlete that helped track and field move from its original amateur status in the Olympic games to the professional status, as we know it today. As for Nadia Comaneci, being the first gymnast to score a perfect 10 ever in the history of the Olympic games has raised the bar for all gymnasts after her. Now retired from the Olympics both Carl Lewis and Nadia Comaneci are still very outspoken about their sport and help to promote it. Being Olympic stars and motivation speakers they have become very quotable. Here are eight of my most favourite quotes from each athlete:

Carl Lewis Carl Lewis was a dominant sprinter and long jumper who won 10 Olympic medals including 9 golds. In his career, which spanned from 1976 to 1996, Carl Lewis has 65 consecutive victories in the long jump, and this is one of the sport’s longest undefeated streaks. His lifetime accomplishments have led to numerous accolades, including being voted “Sportsman of the Century” by the International Olympic Committee and being named “Olympian of the Century” by the American sports magazine Sports Illustrated.

“By carrying the torch, you will be bridging cultural and social barriers, and all the boundaries that separate nation from nation,”

“I’m not going to wait for anything else for you all to do, not one thing more,”

“Life is about timing.”

“Scientists have proven that it’s impossible to long-jump 30 feet, but I don’t listen to that kind of talk. Thoughts like that have a way of sinking into your feet.”

“The trials on the road to world harmony are no greater than the courage of those who accept the challenge.”

“Unless you can consider some other measures to assure her cooperation, you’re going to be up against a wall,”

“When you’re a part of something that people want you in … that’s what makes it special.”

“My thoughts before a big race are usually pretty simple. I tell myself: “Get out of the blocks, run your race, stay relaxed. If you run your race, you’ll win… channel your energy. Focus.”

Nadia Comaneci Nadia Comaneci won a total of nine Olympic medals, five of them gold during her Olympic career in gymnastics. At 14 years of age Nadia Comaneci was the first gymnast ever to score a Perfect 10. By the time the 1976 Olympics in Montreal ended, Nadia Comaneci had earned seven perfect tens, three gold medals, one bronze, one silver and countless fans. She appeared on the covers of Time, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated, all in the same week, and then returned home to Romania. Four years later, at the 1980 Moscow Olympics, Comaneci earned two more gold medals and two silver. In 1996, Comaneci was inducted into the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame.

“Hard work has made it easy. That is my secret. That is why I win.”

“I believe that you should gravitate to people who are doing productive and positive things with their lives.”

“I don’t run away from a challenge because I am afraid. Instead, I run toward it because the only way to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet.”

“I have had a few turning points, the first day I entered a gymnastics school at age 6.”

“I like to tell young people to work hard for your goals and live in the moment.”

“I worked hard in gymnastics since the time I was six years old until I retired at 23 years of age.”

“One of the most difficult times in my life was when I escaped from Romania in November of 1989.”

“You should also appreciate the goodness around you, and surround yourself with positive people.”

10 Gloria Steinem Quotes That Helped Shape the Future

10 Gloria Steinem Quotes That Helped Shape the Future

There’s no doubt about it — women’s rights have changed quite a bit over the past 50 or 60 years, and these Gloria Steinem quotes have quite a bit to do with it. It takes courage, dedication, tenacity and intelligence to change the world for the better — attributes that were once thought to belong mostly to men. Thanks to women like Gloria Steinem, that’s all changed. Let these 10 quotes remind us why…

1. “Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That’s their natural and first weapon. She will need her sisterhood.”

2. “Childbirth is more admirable than conquest, more amazing than self-defense, and as courageous as either one.”

3. “Happy or unhappy, families are all mysterious. We have only to imagine how differently we would be described – and will be, after our deaths – by each of the family members who believe they know us.”

4. “The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.”

5. “Power can be taken, but not given. The process of the taking is empowerment in itself.”

6. “For women… bras, panties, bathing suits, and other stereotypical gear are visual reminders of a commercial, idealized feminine image that our real and diverse female bodies can’t possibly fit. Without these visual references, each individual woman’s body demands to be accepted on its own terms. We stop being comparatives. We begin to be unique.”

7. “If women are supposed to be less rational and more emotional at the beginning of our menstrual cycle when the female hormone is at its lowest level, then why isn’t it logical to say that, in those few days, women behave the most like the way men behave all month long?”

8. “If you say, “I’m for equal pay,” that’s a reform. But if you say. “I’m a feminist,” that’s … a transformation of society.”

9. “If young women have a problem, it’s only that they think there’s no problem.”

10. “For much of the female half of the world, food is the first signal of our inferiority. It lets us know that our own families may consider female bodies to be less deserving, less needy, less valuable.”

Gloria Steinem’s views may have been controversial at one time, but you don’t have to agree with everything she’s ever said to agree with the fact that she changed the world for the better. As her birthday rolls in, let’s help her celebrate by looking at and admiring these 10 Gloria Steinem quotes.

Packed with your bags … Ready to make a move?

Whom are you going to call for moving you. Some good movers, may be proclaiming to provide a good moving service. There are a lot of Movers in Miami and Fort Lauderdale these days, which is both good and bad. Good because this gives you good number of options for making a move from places to places, both locally and nationally, and Bad because it obviously increases the quandary and confusion regarding which one to choose. Plus there are also conditions regarding the transport service offered by them, the extent of their moment, permissions man power etc.

Moving services these days can now be compared through finding out the online solutions via some website offering a quotation of rates and services of various moving service providers. Other than this they’ll also offer you assistance regarding the packing material. People often think that while moving a ordinary or little packing material used would not make a big difference but as a matter of fact, it does. Using a degraded quality of packing material would always put your valuable luggage at a risk of being damaged very easily. Those plain old moving boxes that are used for moving are not all made with the same quality and materials, and they are not just the common standard boxes you see moved by retailers the world over.

Even if it’s tempting to just use the cheapest boxes and packing supplies you can get your hands on, try avoiding it because the quality of your moving boxes and supplies has a huge effect on whether your items arrive safely and securely at your new home. It is therefore always advisable to use only boxes specially designed for moving when you’re packing your goods. You can also avail the help of some moving service and quotes providers to determine how many boxes and the type of boxes that will be needed to complete your move.

Moving boxes are made out of single or double wall corrugated cardboard. Thicker the wall of the box, higher is the strength, lower are the chances of your luggage being crushed. A term ECT is often used to define the strength of these boxes used for moving. ECT here stands for edge Crush Test rating the box will have. Professional moving companies generally use moving boxes with at least a 32 ECT rating or 300 pounds so that it can provide you with comfort that the box with your household belongings is strong enough to survive the move.

Planning your move is the most crucial step, so draw up an inventory of what you need to pack so that you have an idea of the type and quantity of items you need moved be considered before you are shopping for moving boxes and other packaging and cushioning stuff. Rearranging them, use them wisely to pack your stuff. Care for your luggage and never bear loss!! Though most of the things can be mended but following the old saying “Prevention is better than cure” – will always be delightful!
