Alice in Wonderland Quote by Queen of Hearts

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.

Alice in Wonderland Quote by The White Queen - Best Quote

This Alice in Wonderland Quote comes from the White Queen. Alice is still in the woods and she has met the White Queen. They talk about many things; happiness, loneliness and beliefs. When the White Queen tells Alice that she is one hundred and one years, and five months and a day old, Alice cannot believe her. When the White Queen suggests Alice to try and believe, Alice says that one can't believe impossible things. The White Queen disagrees and says:

"Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
-White Queen

Alice In Wonderland Quote by Tweedledee

This week's Alice in Wonderland quote is from Tweedledee, the twin brother of Tweedledum
Alice is  wondering in the woods and trying to get to the 8th square before dark. She meets two fat boys who look like identical school boys. They have their names embroidered on their collars: TWEEDLEDUM and TWEEDLEDEE. Only DUM and DEE are showing in front .  Alice is in a hurry, since she doesn't want to be in the woods after dark. But the funny little boys don't want to let her go so quickly:

"Contrariwise, if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic."
- Tweedledee


The boys talk in a funny way saying 'contrariwise' time and again. They say they know what Alice is thinking and this quote is Tweedledee's answer to her thoughts. But instead Alice says she was only thinking what is the best way out of the forest. Tweedledum and Tweedledee don't take any notice and begin repeating an extremely long piece of poetry for Alice.

Here are Tweedledum and Tweedledee in different productions. See how they have evolved through time from 1865 to 2010.

Alice in Wonderland Talks to the Daisies - Best Quote

This Alice in Wonderland quote comes from a scene where Alice talks to the Daisies:

"If you don't hold your tongues, I'll pick you!"
- Alice


Alice comes to a garden with a large flower bed bordered by daisies and a willow-tree growing in the middle. Alice wishes that the flowers could talk and becomes speechless for a while when the Tiger-Lily answers her. The Lily explains that all flowers can talk but because most garden beds are so soft the flowers in them are always sleeping. This garden has a very hard ground and so the flowers are awake and can talk when they are addressed first. Suddenly all the daisies start talking and shouting at the same time and Alice shuts them up by whispering these scary words!
