Alice Humpty Dumpty Quotes

In his little speech to Alice, Humpty Dumpty sketches the future of human hopes and gives the clue to our salvation: to become masters of the words we speak, to make language answer our needs, Humpty Dumpty was a prophet, a man who spoke truths the world wasnt ready for. For all men are eggs, in a manner of speaking. We exist, but we havent yet achieved the form that is our destiny. We are pure potential, an example of the not-yet-arrived. For man is a fallen creature we know that from Genesis. Humpty Dumpty is also a fallen creature. He falls from his wall, and no one can put him back together again neither his king, nor his horses, nor his men. But that is what we must all now strive to do. It is our duty as human beings to put the egg back together again.
— Paul Auster —
