Thursday Thirteen: Dr. Seuss Quotes


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

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

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

04. Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.

05. 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.

06. Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.

07. I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful, one hundred percent.

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

09. I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.

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

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

12. 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....

13. Will you succeed? Yes you will indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
