Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to
Alice: I don't much care where.
The Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go.
Alice: ůso long as I get somewhere.
The Cat: Oh, you're sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.
