Quotation by Lewis Carroll

"Just the place for a Snark!" the Bellman cried,
As he landed his crew with care;
Supporting each man on the top of the tide
By a finger entwined in his hair.
"Just the place for a Snark! I have said it twice:
That alone should encourage the crew.
Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice:
What I tell you three times is true."
Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898), British author, mathematician, clergyman. The Hunting of the Snark, Fit the First, Macmillan (1876).
