Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

02/03/2011

Today is Dr. Seuss’s 107th birthday, and I wanted to take a moment to pay tribute to a man who, though departed, shaped the lives of so many children and continues to do so today — as evidence, I give you massive fixtures of his books and books written in his style in just about every store.

HuffPo rounded up Tweets of favorite Dr. Seuss quotes, and I want to share a few of my own — they may be repeats, but honestly I don’t care.

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

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

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

“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. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”

(Okay, I just love the entire book Oh, The Places You’ll Go!)

“Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.”

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” (So true…)

So, what are your favorites?
