Our Trip Through Wonderland Has Come To An End

Favorite Line Of All Time

  My favorite line in Alice’s adventure has got to be the exchange between Alice and the Mad Hatter. Alice: “I don’t think…” Mad Hatter: “Then you shouldn’t talk.” A truer line has never been uttered.  How many people would you like to say this to in a day?  Most people do not think before …
