Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Seuss quotes for kids of all ages to live by!


Today we celebrate what would have been the 109th birthday of Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel. Dr. Seuss is probably the most popular author in children's literary history. His over 60 books have made their mark on millions of tiny readers with inventive wordplay, one-of-a-kind characters and philosophies that resonate with those ages 2 to 102. 
From Greens Eggs & Ham to The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Seuss' classics are a blast to read with words with flavor that burst in our mouths like candy. Beyond the rhyme and rhythms there is always a lesson. Dr. Seuss wrote about humanity, individuality and social responsibility in a way that makes the most complex concepts easy to understand and seem like common sense. The following quotes are a few of my favorites!
  • "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
  • "Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!"
  • "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."
  • "A person's a person, no matter how small."
  • "Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” 
  • "Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!"
  • "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. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go."
  • “So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.”
  • “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” 
  • “You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.” 
  • "Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one."
  • “I know, up on top you are seeing great sights, but down here at the bottom we, too, should have rights.” 
  • “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.”  
  • "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."
  • “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.” 
  • “If things start happening, don't worry, don't stew, just go right along and you'll start happening too.” 
  • “You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” 
  • “All alone! Whether you like it or not, alone is something you'll be quite a lot!” 
  • “They say I'm old-fashioned, and live in the past, but sometimes I think progress progresses too fast!” 
  • “I’m glad we had the times together just to laugh and sing a song, seems like we just got started and then before you know it, the times we had together were gone.” 
"
“We are all a little weird and life is 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.”


Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! 
Love,
A book nut!
