Alice sought out the Owl because she had heard that he had The Answer. When she found him, she said, “It is said that you alone have the Answer.”
The Owl replied, “My friend, as much as is said of me is true.” So she asked the Owl her question.
And he answered carefully, “You must find out for yourself.”
Alice said angrily, “Did I need the Owl to tell me I must think for myself?”
“But, my friend,” the Owl replied. “That is the Answer.”
