4 Quotes for the New Pagan

I taught students and apprentices for many years and I’ve had the same questions many many times and thus for your amusment and consideration I offer you my 4 favourites answers from Lewis Caroll and Alice in Wonderland.

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to walk from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t care where””” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you walk,” 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 only you walk long enough.”

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” 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 have come here.”

“Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?” He asked.
“Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely, “and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”

“Have you guessed the riddle yet?” the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.
“No, I give it up,” Alice replied: “what’s the answer?”
“I haven’t the slightest idea,” said the Hatter.

Maybe they’ll help as you learn your own path as only you can decide the road you’ll walk and though your teacher can be a sign post we can’t do it for you and often we can’t even travel with you. Sometimes the most you can reasonably expect is a friendly voice in what might otherwise be a scarey and lonely place.
