Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Below are a few of my favorite quotes from Dr. Seuss!  The magical spirit in each book puts a smile on my face every time I open one up!

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

And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed.

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

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

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.

If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good.

So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.

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

Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.

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

You are you. Now, isn’t that pleasant?

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

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

Young cat, if you keep your eyes open enough, oh, the stuff you would learn! The most wonderful stuff!

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