Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll (chapter8)
The Duchess to Alice:
The Duchess: Be what you would seem to be -- or, if you'd like it put more simply -- Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise......
Time for a blogbreak...tomorrow is a busy day packing ,and Saturday morning early we travel to spain.Hope you will all be well...take care,and do visit the Hilltop if you can,I believe there are still fairies...hiding in kitchen drawers,under my bed,in the old oak tree,and in some abandoned birds nests.If you see them,please tell the little ones I will be back soon....
