How queer everything is to-day! And yesterday things went on just as usual. I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think: was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is, “Who in the world am I?” Ah, that's the great puzzle!

Applause Yes, after every night's sleep, we wake up being different (and yet the same soul dwells in our mutating material body) (hopefully refreshed) with new ideas born in our mind, and changed views brought by past experiences and present circumstances.

Ah, that's the nice quote! To tell a dream is the part of one not being dreamy and to confess our doubts and imperfections is a token of sanity.

This is not Lewis Carroll himself. This is what Alice says, she is in her dream and about to see some events and creatures of which one is curioser than another!

Yeah, the night is the most convenient time to steal someone identity and get away with it unnoticed... Where's my ID card, darling?

Its natural that when we determine to change ourselves unknowingly we change ourselves which is a great change to the world

The context from:

ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND

CHAPTER II - The Pool of Tears


After a time she heard a little pattering of feet in the distance, and she hastily dried her eyes to see what was coming. It was the White Rabbit returning, splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves in one hand and a large fan in the other: he came trotting along in a great hurry, muttering to himself as he came, 'Oh! the Duchess, the Duchess! Oh! won't she be savage if I've kept her waiting!' Alice felt so desperate that she was ready to ask help of any one; so, when the Rabbit came near her, she began, in a low, timid voice, 'If you please, sir—' The Rabbit started violently, dropped the white kid gloves and the fan, and skurried away into the darkness as hard as he could go.

Alice took up the fan and gloves, and, as the hall was very hot, she kept fanning herself all the time she went on talking: 'Dear, dear! How queer everything is to-day! And yesterday things went on just as usual. I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think: was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is, Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle!' And she began thinking over all the children she knew that were of the same age as herself, to see if she could have been changed for any of them.

I'm sure I'm not Ada,' she said, 'for her hair goes in such long ringlets, and mine doesn't go in ringlets at all; and I'm sure I can't be Mabel, for I know all sorts of things, and she, oh! she knows such a very little! Besides, she's she, and I'm I, and—oh dear, how puzzling it all is! I'll try if I know all the things I used to know. Let me see: four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven is—oh dear! I shall never get to twenty at that rate! However, the Multiplication Table doesn't signify: let's try Geography. London is the capital of Paris, and Paris is the capital of Rome, and Rome—no, that's all wrong, I'm certain! I must have been changed for Mabel! I'll try and say "How doth the little—"' and she crossed her hands on her lap as if she were saying lessons, and began to repeat it, but her voice sounded hoarse and strange, and the words did not come the same as they used to do:—

It is nature. Everything including us change, grow or progress to another stage. The planet earth is moving constantly around its orbit. The entire galaxy is turning to a direction. It is the nature. Nothing to fear about. We grew from a single cell to a baby, a young person, an old person and we pass away. When we die, another baby born. Like grass grow, like leaf fall, like everything else.
