memory and logic

"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Arthur Rackham

It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards.

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.

(Through the Looking Glass)

  1. Gosh, if I could just remember what I was going to say here…lol…

    I do love the picture, and the quotes. And Alice in Wonderland. Did you like the latest Alice movie? My daughter and I saw it in Florida, first, a couple of years ago–and once on Netflix.

    1. Isn’t exciting to remember something three days later when we spent so much time trying fruitlessly to remember it the day we wanted to? *smiling*

      I remember you blogged about the movie and we agreed that Johnny Depp was perfectly endearing as the Mad Hatter. Which reminds me now to add the movie to my Netflix queue…

  2. I loved watching Alice in Wonderland when I was a child, on our black n white screen television. I miss those days 🙁 Though I never liked reading the tale as much as watching the movie. We also had a Hindi version of it 🙂

    1. It would be interesting to see “Alice in Wonderland” in other languages and cultures. Sometimes the real world makes as little sense as Alice’s dream. 🙂

  3. I never read Alice in Wonderland. Thank you for sharing this wonderful Arthur Rackham illustrations. and contariwise quote!

    This is the first time I saw the past three days of blogs from you. I went to look because I had not seen a new blog from you! Glad I did!

    1. Oh my, Jeff, you should try to get a copy and read “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland!”

      Things are still pretty disorganized here on my blog – I keep finding comments buried under other notifications and still seem to be getting duplicate and triplicate notifications for other comments. I hope things settle down soon! I’m glad you found some of my posts, too! 🙂

Comments welcome...
