Believing in Impossible Things


“There is no use trying,” said Alice; “one can’t believe impossible things.” 

“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

~ Lewis Carroll

My third and final quote today is from the inimitable Lewis Carroll. These are much loved and much repeated lines from Alice in Wonderland – a story packed full of wise and curious truth.

Believing in impossible things takes practise. It is easier to start small. I started by believing that I could give up smoking. I know it is a small thing, but it was something I thought was impossible for me after years of trying, but I finally managed it 9 years ago and will never go back. This was the start of many life changes for me. I chose another impossible thing to make happen, one small thing leads to another… until you have a habit of making seemingly impossible things happen.

So, what impossible things will you believe in today?

    1. Well done to you also! I am so thankful that I managed it in the end… wish I’d never been so stupid as to take it up. Ah well, you live and learn. x


  1. That is one of my favourite quotes too … and you’re so right, if you don’t believe you can do the impossible you’ll likely never discover how to do the impossible.


    1. If you do get a chance to read them, you won’t regret it, I’m sure. So many unusual characters and situations wrapped up perfectly in a book for children. Yet, also very metaphorical for adults too. One of my favourites 🙂
