Chapter 6: Humpty Dumpty 

This was rather sudden, Alice thought: but, after such a very strong hint that she ought to be going, she felt that it would hardly be civil to stay. So she got up, and held out her hand. `Good-bye, till we meet again!' she said as cheerfully as she could. 

 `I shouldn't know you again if we did meet,' Humpty Dumpty replied in a discontented tone, giving her one of his fingers to shake: `you're so exactly like other people.'`

The face is what one goes by, generally,' Alice remarked in a thoughtful tone.

`That's just what I complain of,' said Humpty Dumpty. `Your face is the same as everybody has -- the two eyes, so --' (marking their places in the air with his thumb) `nose in the middle, mouth under. It's always the same. Now if you had the two eyes on the same side of the nose, for instance -- or the mouth at the top -- that would be some help.'"
