King of Hearts Quote from Alice in Wonderland

This week's Alice in Wonderland quote is a conversation between Alice and King of Hearts.

Alice is called up as a witness in the trial where the judge - King of Hearts-  is trying to find out who stole the Queen's tarts. But Alice is so very tall and big at this moment that she accidentally tips over the jury box with all the jurymen. This makes King of Hearts very annoyed and he decides to ask Alice to leave since she knows nothing about the stolen tarts anyway. But it doesn't go so well for King of Hearts:

King of Hearts: "Rule 42: All persons more than a mile high to leave the court."

Alice: "I am not a mile high. I shan't go at any rate. Besides, that's not a regular rule: you invented it just now."

King of Hearts: "It's the oldest rule in the book."

Alice: "Then it ought to be Number One!"

Alice wins this round and stays in court!

The White Queen's Cheeky Quote To Alice in Wonderland

The White Queen has a cheeky offer for Alice and this is her quote:

"The rule is, jam tomorrow and jam yesterday - but never jam today."

-the White Queen

The White Queen promises Alice to pay her two pence a week and jam every other day if she was to become the Queen's maid. Of course this means that Alice would never get any jam, since today is always the 'No jam' day!

Alice in Wonderland Quote by the Caterpillar

This week's Alice in Wonderland quote comes from Alice herself.

Alice  is tiny again, coming from the White Rabbit's house where she has eaten a little pebble sized cake to change into a small girl and has come out of the house without breaking it. She walks in what looks like a thick forest to her and is looking for something to eat that would make her a normal size Alice again.

Alice  finds a huge mushroom and only reaches to see on top of it on tiptoe. There she sees a large caterpillar sitting and smoking a long hookah. After a while of staring at each other the Caterpillar asks Alice: "Who are you?" And when Alice mumbles something about changing so many times since the morning, the Caterpillar tells her to explain herself. But Alice has a problem with that:

"I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself, you see."

Alice in Wonderland Quote by the Gryphon

Alice in Wonderland quote by the Gryphon is one of my favorite quotes:

"The adventures first...explanations take such a dreadful time."

- Gryphon

Alice is having a conversation with the Gryphon and the Mock Turtle by the beach. Alice has been mostly listening to the other two telling their stories and songs but then the Gryphon asks Alice to tell about her adventures as well. When Alice begins her tale a little hesitantly, the Mock Turtle wants her to explain it all. But the Gryphon is impatient and wants to hear only the exiting parts.

Alice in Wonderland Quote by the Duchess

This week's Alice in Wonderland quote comes from the Duchess.
Alice is walking with the Duchess who is for once in a pleasant temper. She tucks her arm into Alice's and rests her chin on Alice's shoulder, which Alice doesn't like much because her chin is uncomfortably sharp.

The Duchess talks and gives morals to everything from love to thinking without speaking. This is a moral to something that only the Duchess can understand:

"Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of themselves."
-the Duchess

Alice in Wonderland Quote by the Red Queen

This Alice in Wonderland quote comes from the Red Queen:

"Now here it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

- Red Queen

Alice meets the Red Queen after talking to the flowers in the Queen's garden. They go for a walk and the Red Queen explains to Alice how the area is a giant chess game and how they move from a square to another. She even promises Alice that in the eight square Alice will become a Queen herself!

While doing this they begin running and the Red Queen just makes them run faster and faster. But the strange thing is that the surroundings don't change at all.  And Alice feels that they are in the same place all the time, even though they run and run  for a long time. The Queen doesn't think anything of it but instead says that Alice's country must be then a very slow sort of a country.
