    In autumn, when the leaves are brown,
    Take pen and ink, and write it down.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    Your sins have found you out, and now you must pay the price of all women like you. You have brought a child into this world against the commandment. Prayer is wasted on your sort. You should be cast out into the utter darkness ‘til you have learned your lesson. Michael Lewis do you admit your sin?... Then prepare to suffer your punishment.
    Philip Dunne (1908–1992)

    Well, “slithy” means “lithe and slimy.” “Lithe” is the same as “active.” You see, it’s like a portmanteau—there are two meanings packed up into one word.
    —Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
