A bit of Lewis Carroll

We’re heading towards the time of year for family games. Here’s one.

All the quotes below are wisdom (or nonsense, depending on how you look at it) from Lewis Carroll, except one. Can you spot the odd one out?

Always speak the truth, think before you speak, and write it down afterwards.

Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end; then stop.

‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ said Alice. ‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the cat. ‘We’re all mad here.’

Contrariwise, if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.

You start in the world you can deliver in. The illegal market is the illegal market. It is very difficult to regulate. But you start by worrying how to regulate the legitimate market.

Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.

If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.

It’s in the article headlined “sports bodies call for right to restrict betting” which was in the FT the other day, in case you missed it.
