I really adore Dr. Seuss! I loved his work even before I became a teacher!

Since his birthday is coming up, I thought I would post a few of his quotes. He really was brilliant and I hope that work is around for a long time.

BTW............just a little bit of info............my mom HATED Dr. Seuss and refused to read his books to me!:laugh: So I had to read the books to myself when I was little. Now I call her and leave voice messages filled with Dr. Seuss quotes just to be a pain in the a$$!:Whistle::laugh:

Here is one that I love the most.

"A person's a person no matter how small."

I think Dr. Seuss was pro life!:laugh:

The one you posted is actually my favorite quote from him. This is a close second:

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

“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.”

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love."

This is for you when your on the battlefields in your dreams and I am searching for you...

A very good biography is Judith Morgan's Dr. Seuss and Mr. Geisel (http://www.amazon.com/Dr-Seuss-Mr-Geisel-Biography/dp/0679416862/ref=tmm_hrd_title_0).

I also have a wonderful link to a series of his work during WWII on the old coal-generated computer, I'll fire it up later and post it. :)

He really has some good ones! Too many to pick a favorite!

We are having our annual pajama day at school on his birthday and I just ordered my Dr. Seuss pjs! :laugh: Can't wait for them to arrive! They have The Cat in the Hat all over them!

A repost in remembrance of my Uncle Giuseppe who passed on yesterday...........

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

Dr. Seuss

My Uncle had 82 wonderful years in this world. Came from Sicilian immigrant parents who had nothing and created a wonderful life for himself, his wife of 60 years, his 4 children and his 16 grandchildren. May his name be honored for generations to come.

Pajama day at school? I couldn't go out in public wearing what I sleep in. At least, not legally.
