a paragraph from Alice in wonderland, full of loneliness (in my opinion)

`Come, there's no use in crying like that!' said Alice to herself, rather sharply; `I advise you to leave off this minute!' She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it), and sometimes she scolded herself so severely as to bring tears into her eyes; and once she remembered trying to box her own ears for having cheated herself in a game of croquet she was playing against herself, for this curious child was very fond of pretending to be two people. `But it's no use now,' thought poor Alice, `to pretend to be two people! Why, there's hardly enough of me left to make one respectable person!

According to Christie's notes, this watch was unknown to replica watches uk literature and the market until 1996. That was the time when it was first offered at auction, and also when it broke the then replica watches world-record for any stainless steel wristwatch ever sold at auction. According to Patek's notes this piece was sold by its retailer in India and, as Christie's remarks, it actually was "the pride of a Maharaja who enjoyed wearing the replica watches robust timepiece occasionally when playing polo. It was then given as a present to the man in charge of organizing the replica watches Maharaja's wedding." After fetching a striking $2,240,714 all we know is that the piece can now rolex replica sale be found at the Patek Philippe Museum... and that I never before wanted so much to be a wedding organizer in India. Another incredibly replica watches uk complicated pocket watch by Patek Philippe; but this has something more going for it than your average sublimely complicated Patek: it is the first ever made and recorded grand complication by the manufacture.
