Alice in Wonderland
The cat only grinned when it saw Alice. It looked good-natured, she thought; still it had very long claws and a great many teeth so she felt that it ought to be treated with respect.
"Would you tell me, please," she began timidly, "which way ought I to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the cat.
"I don't much care where - "said Alice. "The it doesn't matter which way you go," said the cat.
" - So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh you're sure to do that," said the cat, "If you only walk long enough."
Alice felt that this could not be denied, so she tried another question. "What sort of oeople live about here?"
"Oh," said the cat, "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the cat, "or you wouldn't be here."
"Bye-the-bye," said the cat, "What became of the baby?"
"It turned into a pig," replied Alice, "And I wish you wouldn't keep appearing and vanishing so suddenly: you make one giddy." "all right," said the cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone
