News Article: Why are Lewis Carroll misquotes so common?

I was interviewed for a recent Guardian article about misquoting Lewis Carroll after a set of commemorative coins appeared with quotations certainly not taken from Lewis Carroll or his famous novel. Those coins were not a singularity: in this anniversary year of Through the Looking-Glass, several National organisations’ social media accounts had fallen into the same trap, and adorned their posts with quotes normally found on Alice-themed memes and merchandise across the web – but not in Carroll’s books.

The article mentioned a resource available via the Lewis Carroll Review, compiled by Lenny de Rooy, for authors wanting to double-check if a quote really is from Carroll’s novels, or an internet phenomenon.
