It may not have a special meaning to others, but it seems to have a deeper connection with me than any of the other passages. I had choosen this passage because it had sparked a type of memory in myself. Not a memory of an action but more a recurrence thing. The riddle the Hatter had given, "Why is a raven like a writing desk?", It had no answer, for there is no way a raven is like a writing desk. Though I had been reminded of two occurences with this phrase. One of which had reminded me that not everything in life would become explanatory or have a single purposeful answer. Somethings were merely meant to be undiscovered or unknown. It also reminds me that sometimes life is a confusing thing, something that isn't always black and white or up and down. Life has colours and purpose, reasons but not explanations. Showing that while life may be confusing it's interesting and fun. Just like the riddle the Hatter had given the confused but intruged Alice.
Some life lessons that had been reinforced for myself while reading this book was probably the life lesson of curiosity kills the cat. Not literally, of course. Alice could have very possibly gotten hurt with her curiosity. Following something like the White Rabbit without someone else could have very possibly gone terribly wrong. What if the Rabbit was truly someone out to hurt Alice or to lure her into a trap. It just reminded me to be cautious with curious things, or simply enough not

    She can barely show enough her composure to keep herself dispassionate and self-possessed when the battle against the Queen. My favorite part was Chapter Twelve when Alice knocks over the Queen’s army of cards by growing herself into a bigger size, as this part is an intense climax of the story for me that the Queen should learn a lesson from her bad temper. Nevertheless, I also disliked a character, the Caterpillar was representing drug use with magic mushrooms and hookah in Chapter Five. This behavior displayed by the Caterpillar can mislead readers attempt to imitate. The book’s language is very complex and nonsense which will leave some children confused.…

    “Curiouser and curiouser!” is the exclamation Alice cries out as she witnesses the absurdities of Wonderland, a magical and frightening, dream world (Carroll 8). It is a statement all readers can certainly agree with as Alice makes her way through a plethora of different, but equally disturbing settings. Her journey begins simply enough at the bank of a river with her sister, when out of the blue, a white, clothed, talking* rabbit hops past her. Alice hastily follows it right into an unreasonably deep rabbit hole, where she plummets for such an extensive period of time, she begins to doze off. “.…

    “Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle!” Alice asks herself this shortly after entering Wonderland, although this line would not be at all out of place in any adolescent’s head (Carroll 15). Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is a novel that deals heavily with many aspects of identity, including finding and growing an identity as a child. Alice goes through many trials in the novel, and readers watch her change and adapt to get through all of these. Disney’s 1951 adaptation Alice in Wonderland has Alice go through many of these same challenges.…
