The wisdom of the White Queen

"It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards."

in Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There
by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson “Lewis Carroll” (1832-1898)
English writer, mathematician

I love the queens in Through the Looking Glass, they are exuberantly exotic and they invite multi-dimensional thoughts, for Alice’s education and that of the reader….

The White Queen’s insight about memory provokes me to suggest that it can be motivational, from time to time, to imagine what you would like to remember later.

Especially if grandchildren are involved….
