Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Dr. Seuss is one of my very favorite children's book authors. It is really hard to choose my favorite Dr. Seuss book but I dearly love Horton Hatches the Egg, The Lorax and How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Today the movie version of "The Lorax" opens in theatres around the country and I look forward to seeing it soon.

Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1904. I would like to share some of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotations to honor his 108th birthday.

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”   

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

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

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

“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...”   
(Oh The Places You'll Go)

 “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
(I Can Read With My Eyes Shut)

“A person's a person, no matter how small.”
(Horton Hears A Who)

“Being crazy isn't enough.”

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”  
 (The Lorax)

“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 meant what I said and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful one-hundred percent!”  
 (Horton Hatches The Egg)

“How did it get so late so soon?”    

“I'm afraid that sometimes you'll play lonely games too. Games you can't win 'cause you'll play against you.”    

“Remember me and smile, for it's better to forget than to remember me and cry.”  

Thank you for the many hours of happy reading, Dr. Seuss! You will always be remembered.
