Alice in wonderland

is an excellent book by Lewis Carroll. As usual I'm going to quote from a few pages:
It was labelled ORANGE MARMALADE, but to her great disappointment it was empty.
Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end?
She generally gave herself very good advice (though she very seldom followed it).
Alice felt so desparate that she was ready to ask help of anyone.
Why, said the Dodo, the best way to explain it is to do it.
It sounded like an excellent plan, no doubt, and very neatly and simply arranged; the only difficulty was, that she had not the smallest idea how to set about it.
Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
That depends a good deal on where you want to get to, said the Cat.
I don't much care where - said Alice.
Then it doesn't matter which you go, said the Cat.
Have some wine, the March Hare said in an encouraging tone.
Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea.
I don't see any wine, she remarked.
There isn't any, said the March Hare.
The chief difficulty Alice found at first was in managing her flamingo.
Alice soon came to the conclusion that it was a very difficult game indeed.
Take off your hat, the King said to the Hatter.
It isn't mine, said the Hatter.
Stolen, the King exclaimed, to the jury, who instantly made a memorandum of the fact.
I keep them to sell, the Hatter added as an explanation: I've none of my own. I'm a hatter.
Begin at the beginning, the King said gravely, and go on till you come to the end: then stop.
