When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead,
and the white knight is talking backwards,
and the red queen’s off with her head,
Remember what the dormouse said:

Feed your head!  Feed your head!

D'you reckon Prof. Brian Cox talks like that all the time? Friend:   Cup of tea, Brian?
Brian Cox:   What's AMAZING is how just...FOUR ingredients can MASH and MIX...to create something...so BEAUTIFUL...so CALMING...something that AFFECTS our LIVES so greatly but we don't even REALISE how much we rely...on that...one first cup...in the morning...
Friend:   ...right. Biscuit?
Brian Cox:   Isn't it INCREDIBLE how something...invented HUNDREDS of years AGO...can be so PERFECTLY matched...to a HOT LIQUID...created COMPLETELY INDEPENDENTLY...surely, THAT is a mystery...of our MYSTERIOUS...and BEAUTIFUL...universe.
Friend:   ...for fuck's sake.

Excerpt of letter from Geoffrey Smith to friend JRR Tolkien, written just before his death in the first World War:

My chief consolation is that if I am scuppered tonight — I am off on duty in a few minutes — there will still be left a member of the great T.C.B.S. [Tea Club and Barrovian Society] to voice what I dreamed and what we all agreed upon. For the death of one of its members cannot, I am determined, dissolve the T.C.B.S. Death can make us loathsome and helpless as individuals, but it cannot put an end to the immortal four! A discovery I am going to communicate to Rob before I go off tonight. And do you write it also to Christopher. May God bless you my dear John Ronald and may you say things I have tried to say long after I am not there to say them if such be my lot.Yours ever,G. B. S.

Remember, one who enjoys more is bound to suffer more because he becomes very sensitive. But suffering is not bad. If you understand it rightly, suffering is a cleansing. If you understand it rightly, sadness has a depth to it which no happiness can ever have. A person who is simply happy is always superficial. A person who has not known sorrow and has not known sadness, has not known the depths. He has not touched the bottom of his being; he has remained just on the periphery. One has to move within these two banks. Within these two banks flows the river.

You are a wonderful creation. You know more than you think you know, just as you know less than you want to know.
