More than a century ago, Lewis Carroll (also known as Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, mathematic, writer and poet) has invented the girl Alice and her incredible dream about adventures in Wonderland. And the girl Alice has invented her own wonderful way of living and thinking. It has so much sincerity and paradoxicality which create together a deep worldly wisdom.
Alice’s quotes – it’s a special, sophisticated pleasure for your mind. Here we decided to collect all our favorite quotes, but of course you can find much more quotes in the book - the book which became important for many generations and determinative for all the conscience of European civilization. Let’s read Alice together.

Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality
