One of a kind....the original...Dr. Seuss

A person's a person, no matter how small.


Adults are obsolete children.


Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.


Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.


From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.


Fun is good.


How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?


I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.


I meant what I said and I said what I meant.


I start drawing, and eventually the characters involve themselves in a situation. Then in the end, I go back and try to cut out most of the preachments.


Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn't come from a store.


Preachers in pulpits talked about what a great message is in the book. No matter what you do, somebody always imputes meaning into your books.

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!


Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.


Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!


Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.


When at last we are sure, You've been properly pilled, Then a few paper forms, Must be properly filled. So that you and your heirs, May be properly billed.


You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.


You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go.


You make 'em, I amuse 'em.




Learn a few to quote to your kids.  Dr. Seuss was a great thinker , a great visionary and looked at the world through whimsical, not-so-serious glasses.  We all should learn from him that life is short.  Life should be fun and we are truly unique  individuals.  We should reach for the stars and believe in ourselves.  Have an awesome weekend and read on.  Blessings.
