This week's Alice in Wonderland quote comes from the ever fearsome Queen of Hearts.
Alice is talking with the Duchess who is released from the prison in the middle of the Queen's croquet game. But when the Queen of Hearts sees the Duchess she stomps on the ground and shouts:
"Now, I give you fair warning, either you or your head must be off, and that in about half no time! Take your choice!"
-the Queen of Hearts
The Duchess doesn't think for a moment but vanishes in a second. She is too scared of the Queen and does not want to be taken back to the prison. The Queen then leads speechless Alice back to the croquet-ground.
