Alice in Wonderland has been a timeless classic for many years now. Alice and her friends have captured the hearts of many readers, viewers, and audiences. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most timeless quotes from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland that, even years later, drive us crazy and mad.
