What the Horseman Said to Todd, by Lewis Carroll

TODD had overtaken the Horseman, and had seated himself
comfortably on its back.

“So you’ve got to the end of our race-course?” said the Horseman. “Even though it does consist of an infinite series of distances? I thought some wiseacre or another had proved that the thing couldn’t be done?”

“It can be done,” said Todd. “It has been done! Solvitur ambulando. You see the distances were constantly diminishing; and so—”

“But if they had been constantly increasing?” the Horseman interrupted. “How then?”

“Then I shouldn’t be here,” Todd modestly replied; “and you would have got several times round the world by that time!”

“You flatter me—flatten, I mean,” said the Horseman; “for you are a heavy weight, and no mistake! Well now, would you like to hear of a race-course, that most people fancy they can get to the end of in two or three steps, while it really consists of an infinite number of distances, each one longer than the previous one?”

“Very much indeed!” said the Grecian warrior Todd, “But I’d much rather you wait until I wake up from this most discomfiting dream.”
