But the snail replied, "Too far, too far!" and gave a look
Said he thanked the whiting kindly, but he would not join the dance.

an unfortunate mishap; especially one causing damage or injury
"Oh, I beg your pardon!" she exclaimed in a tone of great dismay, and began picking them up again as quickly as she could, for the
accident of the goldfish kept running in her head, and she had a vague sort of idea that they must be collected at once and put back into the jury-box, or they would die.

"Back to land again, and -- that's all the first
figure," said the Mock Turtle, suddenly dropping his voice, and the two creatures, who had been jumping about like mad dogs, sat down again very sadly and quietly, and looked at Alice.
Lastly, she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the
