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
