Alice’s adventures in Wonderland 1972

Alice came to a fork in the road. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.
'Where do you want to go?’ responded the Cheshire Cat.
'I don’t know,’ Alice answered.
'Then,’ said the Cat, 'it doesn’t matter.
—  Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

“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.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Happy Birthday to one of our favorite writers: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.  Dodgson was born on January 27, 1832 in the little parsonage of Daresbury in Cheshire near the towns of Warrington and Runcorn.  His novels Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass are those rare books that you can read dozens of times and discover something new each time.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898) is a well-known author under the  pen-name of Lewis Carroll. Dodgson studied at the University of Oxford and became a mathematician. He met the Liddell sisters (Lorina, Alice, and Edith) and found Alice as the muse for a story. Dodgson is most famous for writing Alice in Wonderland. He has also written many other works. 

I find him quite interesting, and there’s plenty of interesting things about him.
