In Wonderland

“Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality.” 
-Lewis Carroll

Today, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland 2 is released in theaters and I am so excited to see it. I absolutely love the story, Alice in Wonderland, the message and the quotes within this beloved classic. My original post was going to be an accumulation of favorite quotes from Lewis Carroll's original novel, but as I started researching this classic, I found a ton of history about it that I didn't know and thought you may be interested in learning about it too.

1865, The original novel of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was written by Lewis Carroll
*The original story fell under the "literary nonsense" genre. 
1903, The first movie adaptation of Lewis Carroll's book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. was directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow
1951, Walt Disney Pictures produced their thirteenth animated feature film, Alice in Wonderland
2010, Tim Burton created his take on the classic, Alice in Wonderland
2016, Tim Burton creates his sequel to Alice in Wonderland, Alice looking through the Looking Glass

At this time, there have been 18 adaptations of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and this is sure to not be its last.

Now, let's get back to some of the best quotes from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. To the dreamers like me who will be inspired by these quotes:
“If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does.” 
“Alice: How long is forever? White Rabbit: Sometimes, just one second.” 
“My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that.” 
“If you don't know where you are going any road can take you there.” 
"I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then."
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” 
"Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."
"Oh, how I long to run away from normal days and run away with my imagination."
"Actually, the best gift you ever could have given her was a lifetime of adventures."
