The white rabbit is a fictional character in Lewis Carroll’s book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. He appears at the very beginning of the book, in chapter one, wearing a waistcoat, and muttering “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!” Alice follows him down the rabbit hole into Wonderland.
Chasing the white rabbit is a term which we use to describe peoples fascination with chasing down the truth, following leads.
With so many roads to take and decisions to make, how does one ever know if they are taking the right path? Making the right choice?
Like Alice stumbling through Wonderland, some times it’s difficult to determine which way one should go. We all have a white rabbit in our lives. He is the dream. He is the one who drives you to go further. He is the push you need to keep going.
If Alice had never followed the White Rabbit, she would never have had the adventures she did. She would be bored, talking to a cat that couldn’t talk back, and wondering about the world around her.
Keep chasing your white rabbit!
