Some thoughts from Lewis Carroll

I was too young when I first read the most famous book by Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.  And then I discovered his work as an adult and I was moved. And moved…

“One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.”
“IN THE END… We only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have,and the decisions we waited too long to make.”
“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.
“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 way you go,’ said the Cat”
“Why is it that the people with the narrowest minds seem to have the widest mouths?”
“If you limit your actions in life to things that nobody can possibly find fault with, you will not do much!”

And finally, the quote that I must remember this Lent:

“The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.”
