On Believing Impossible Things

From the July 4, 1942 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Most readers whose attention is arrested by the above caption will recall that strangely stimulating story, "Through the Looking Glass," written by Lewis Carroll half a century or more ago. They will recollect the dialogue therein between Alice and the White Queen, in which Alice argues that one cannot believe impossible things; whereupon the Queen boasts that sometimes she has believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
