‘Who are you?’ said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, ‘I — I hardly know, sir, just at present — at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.’
Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
I want to chase the daylight
Like it’s the last day of my life
I want to run
Hide myself in the sun and feel all these fears
And I will never look back no I will never look back
I’m gonna live this life
Chasing the daylight
Philip LaRue, “Chasing the Daylight”
I am a selfish and sinful man, but God put his hands on me, that is all.
Alan Paton, Cry, the Beloved Country
