Furthermore, they’re so much fun to eat. You have to nibble your way through their sweet yet tangy pulpy center to get to their glossy, almost mahogany colored seeds. As you can see from the picture above, I’ve used them to decorate my tiny glass pitcher.
If I’m going to be addicted to something, it might as well be high in vitamin C, with ample cancer fighting antioxidants.
It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.
What is the use of a book, without pictures or conversations?
I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!
Speak English! I don't know the meaning of half those long words, and I don't believe you do either!
I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see.
If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does.
If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
Why is a raven like a writing desk?
Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you're at.
Off with her head!
Tut, tut, child! Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it.
Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of themselves.
We called him Tortoise because he taught us.
The Mock Turtle
Reeling and Writhing, of course, to begin with, and then the different branches of arithmetic -- Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision.
The Mock Turtle
Well, I never heard it before, but it sounds uncommon nonsense.
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.
I don't believe there's an atom of meaning in it.
Sentence first -- verdict afterwards.
You're nothing but a pack of cards!
But then, shall I never get any older than I am now? That'll be a comfort, one way -- never to be an old woman -- but then -- always to have lessons to learn!
A cat may look at a king. I've read that in some book, but I don't remember where.
I think I should understand that better, if I had it written down: but I can't quite follow it as you say it.
That's nothing to what I could say if I chose.
Now, I give you fair warning, either you or your head must be off, and that in about half no time! Take your choice!
No wonder you're late. Why, this watch is exactly two days slow.
Let me see: four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven is -- oh dear! I shall never get to twenty at that rate!
It was much pleasanter at home, when one wasn't always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits.
Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin; but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever say in my life!
There's a large mustard-mine near here. And the moral of that is -- The more there is of mine, the less there is of yours.
The Mock Turtle
What is the use of repeating all that stuff, if you don't explain it as you go on? It's by far the most confusing thing I ever heard!
The Mock Turtle
Ah! Then yours wasn't a really good school. Now at ours they had at the end of the bill. French, music, and washing -- extra.
Oh, how I wish I could shut up like a telescope! I think I could, if I only knew how to begin.
Now, Kitty, let's consider who it was that dreamed it all. This is a serious question, my dear, and you should not go on licking your paw like that -- as if Dinah hadn't washed you this morning!

He has made such an indelible impression on me so I’ve dubbed him Mr. charming and judging by that face, isn’t that just fitting?

To some extent, my mother is very similar to my father on the manners front. But, it’s a different story for the rest of my family. Sometimes I laugh at their candor but mostly, there are certain words that are so hard on the ears, I would prefer not to hear them at all.
Thank goodness for muzzles.
When she sat down, she greeted me and actually apologized for crashing our dinner, I told her it was alright and was hopeful for a nice, calm and drama free evening.

her feet devour the distance.
while she heaves uncontrollably.
As the rain clears and the sun's rays caress her with its warmth
she wills her body to move
and was surprised when her brain and limbs became in-sync
she drags herself up the grand steps.
When the thought of everything that can go wrong roam around in your head, focus on the one sure thing, the ring. Tacori makes it possible to be present on the most important day of your life.
