Impossible

6J8A4629

“Let’s consider your age to begin with — how old are you?’

‘I’m seven and a half exactly.’

‘You needn’t say “exactly,”’ the Queen remarked: ‘I can believe it without that. Now I’ll give you something to believe. I’m just one hundred and one, five months and a day.’

‘I can’t believe that!’ said Alice.

‘Can’t you?’ the Queen said in a pitying tone. ‘Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.’

Alice laughed. ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said: ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’

‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

  1. I love the comment. I have always admired Lewis Carroll. Wonderful creativity but also a real humanity to the person. I believe my God is the God of the impossible. Sometimes in this world of trouble and strife it’s hard but I do believe in what is beautiful and what can be possible even in the most difficult of circumstances. Thank you for your post.
