Hello learnergal-ga!

I went and checked my own copy of ?Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland?
for the passage and found it; however, my copy is so old and also part
of a bigger set that it does not contain a copyright date or ISBN
number. So in order to actually get you a page number from a book that
can be properly documented, I conducted a search on Google Book
Search. Just to clarify, Alice is actually talking to the Cheshire-Cat
in this passage. Here is the quote:

?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 much 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 you only walk long enough!?

(?Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland,? by Lewis Carroll, published by
Signet Classic Printing, 2000, pp. 64-65.)
