Ultimate Brilliance in Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland #TheDailyPost

When I was reading my favorite book, Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, I remember being fascinated by many of its characters. Although all the characters were well-written, my favorite character was Mad Hatter — no surprise there! Lewis Carroll has given an eye-opening reality check to the readers without even sounding like a preacher. He redefined the concept of madness and made me, as a reader, rethink the very definition of being a mad person. There were so many brilliant, yet strange, dialogues that one might lose all the sense. Lewis Carroll’s writing would force you to speculate, laugh, and reconsider everything that you know oh so well. However, above all, his writing made me celebrate my uniqueness. In his own witty style, he convinced me that it’s okay to be different. The world’s definition of unique, brilliant, and mad might be different from that of mine, but that does not make me an alien or a freak; it only makes me what God intended me to be: unique and brilliant in my own way.

Anytime I get a chance to mention quotes of Mr. Lewis Carroll, I grab the opportunity with both my hands. My favorite quotes from his magnificent books are many, but I would like to share a few outstanding one:

“Alice asked the Cheshire Cat, who was sitting in a tree, “What road do I take?”

The cat asked, “Where do you want to go?”

“I don’t know,” Alice answered.

“Then,” said the cat, “it really doesn’t matter, does it?”

Do you see the depth in this simple dialogue exchange between Cheshire Cat and Alice? I hope you do because we all need this kind of thinking to remain our brilliant-self today. We don’t have a direction and yet we feel lost all the time. When we don’t know our destination, then why are we so lost? Why are we so eager to follow the footsteps of others and not explore our own destined goal?

“How long is forever?
Sometimes just one second”

Regardless of this known fact, we are worried about the long run. What should we do to leave our mark on the history forever? This is the question that haunts us forever, even though the forever may not even last one full second.

“you’re entirly bonkers but I’ll tell you a secret all the best people are”

The best people are bonkers, then why are we striving to become normal? Being normal is an easy way out. The more challenging part is to stand out and show your crazy, unique side that makes you brilliant in the eyes of the creator. At least, that’s what I think.

“If everybody minded their own business,’ the Duchess said in a hoarse growl, ‘the world would go round a deal faster than it does.”
