Carrol? Now you're talking. I reccomend the HUmpty Dumpty dialogue with
Alice from Through the Looking Glass.

`When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, `it
means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.'

Will Carroll quotes do?

* Well, I never heard it before,' said the Mock Turtle; 'but it sounds
uncommon nonsense.'

* See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
They are waiting on the shingle--will you come and join the dance?

* What IS the use of repeating all that stuff,' the Mock Turtle interrupted,
`if you don't explain it as you go on? It's by far the most confusing thing
I ever heard!
