Let us Read to A Child

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”

Seuss embraced the life of the imagination and detested staid adults who dismissed the whimsical,

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


These quotations From Dr. Seuss hardly need an introduction. Any one who is or has been a parent will reconize most of them.This selection focuses on phrases that urge people to look at life with joyful expectation. I won’t even bother expounding  on these quotes because Dr. Seuss says everything much better than I can. Anyway, Seuss hated wordy writing,

“So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.” ― Dr. Seuss

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happene

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

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

Born: March 2, 1904, Springfield   Died: September 24, 1991, La Jolla   Full name: Theodor Seuss Geise Spouse: Helen Palmer Geisel (m. 1927–1967)

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

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

“If things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too.

“You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting,

So… get on your way!”

 “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”

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

“So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act.

And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you’ll move mountains.”

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

“You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.”

“Think and wonder, wonder and think.”

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