    “Suppose they had saved up all my punishments?” she went on, talking more to herself than to the kitten. “What would they do at the end of a year? I should be sent to prison, I suppose, when the day came. Or—let me see—suppose each punishment was to be going without a dinner: then, when the miserable day came, I should have to go without fifty dinners at once! Well, I shouldn’t mind that much! I’d far rather go without them than eat them!”

    They pursued it with forks and hope;
    They threatened its life with a railway-share
    They charmed it with smiles and soap.
    —Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
