TOP 20 Quotes To Remember From Dr. SEUSS
He is known for his work writing and illustrating more than 60 children’s books under the pen name Dr. Seuss. His work includes many of the most popular children’s books of all time, selling over 600 million copies and being translated into more than 20 languages by the time of his death. Famous for the “The Cat In The Hat” amongst many others.
HERE ARE 20 QUOTES TO REMEMBER FROM DR. SEUSS:
- “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
No two people on this Earth have the same qualities, so why try to imitate someone else? Why not simply embrace yourself as the beautiful, unique being that you are, and go out and show the world your truth?
- “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
You control what happens in your life, for the most part. You steer the vessel, you call the shots, and you decide what path you should take. If you don’t like your life, then make better choices so that you can live to your highest potential.
- “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
In this world, we all must care about something. Apathy might seem like the easier route, but it won’t bring you near as much fulfillment. Turning your cheek towards important issues in life will not make anything better, so we must care about ourselves and the planet in order to enact any change.
- “Think and wonder. Wonder and think.”
Don’t allow others to dictate your thoughts or opinions. Use your own brain and intuition instead of relying on technology or other people to think for you.
- “You are you. Now isn’t that pleasant?”
Instead of bashing everything about you that you see as flawed, try to focus on everything positive about you. You don’t get another body, mind or soul in this life, so you may as well learn to love yourself while you can.
- “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
Our society doesn’t place near enough value on learning and education these days. We spend so much time lost in technology and status updates and taking pictures that we have lost much of our desire and drive to truly learn. Pick up a book, question things you’ve heard, and commit to making life your teacher, always.
- “You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.”
The world might look ugly sometimes, but you can find beauty anywhere. Don’t close your eyes for a second, because before you know it, life will pass you by.
- “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”
We tend to overthink life a lot of times, instead of just enjoying it and embracing the simplicity of it all. Try not to let your mind overcomplicate life, and just stay in the present moment.
- “If things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too.”
Life can seem stagnant sometimes, but don’t worry – oftentimes, the greatest things happen to us when we least expect them to.
- “Just tell yourself, duckie, you’re really quite lucky.”
Don’t forget to show gratitude for all the blessings you’ve received in life. Sometimes we tend to focus on all the negatives happening to us, and forget to see the positives through the dark clouds.
- “It’s better to know how to learn than to know.”
This basically means that knowing doesn’t mean as much as knowing how to obtain new knowledge. The person who claims to know it all really doesn’t know much of anything, because realizing you know nothing is true wisdom.
- “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”
Embrace each and every precious memory of your life, because those moments will forever hold a place in your heart.
- “Only you can control your future.”
Dr. Seuss hit the nail on the head with this one. No one can decide your future for you – only you have the power to make the necessary changes in your life moving forward.
- “So, open your mouth, lad! For every voice counts.”
We can feel so small in this life sometimes, but remember, your voice matters. Speak up against corruption and hatred, and you just might make a change where it counts.
- “Step with great care and tact and remember that life’s a great balancing act.”
Sometimes we can get too caught up in moving forward, and forget to watch out for others along our path. Remember to take care of yourself and your life, but to also not neglect or hurt others along the way.
- “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive, who is youer than you.”
No one else can ever take your place, so just remember that the next time you feel insignificant or that you don’t matter. Everyone came here with a purpose, and everyone adds value to this life.
- “Today I will behave as if this is the day I will be remembered.”
What would you change today if you realized you didn’t have tomorrow? Would you feel happy with how people would remember you? Ask yourselves these questions and really pay attention to the answers you receive.
- “You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!”
You will never be more ready for anything than you are today, so don’t wait. Start now, because now is as good a time as any.
- “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”
Don’t ever discount someone or put them down – everyone deserves to have a voice and play a part. We all came here as equals, only labels and classifications have divided us.
- “I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.”
Learn how to play in the rain instead of hiding from it. We can’t always have sunny days, but we can embrace the rainy ones just as well.
DON’T FORGET TO LAUGH EVERYDAY
POEM FOR THE DAY
The Lost Dr. Seuss Poem …
I love my Job, I do, I do …
I love my job, I love the pay.
I love it more and more each day.
I love my boss; he/she is the best.
I love his boss and all the rest.
I love my office and its location.
I hate to have to go on vacation.
I love my furniture, drab and gray,
And the paper that piles up every day.
I love my chair in my padded cell.
There’s nothing else I love so well.
I love to work among my peers.
I love their leers and jeers and sneers.
I love my computer and its software;
I hug it often though it don’t care.
I love each program and every file,
I try to understand once in a while.
I’m happy to be here, I am, I am;
I’m the happiest slave of my Uncle Sam.
I love this work; I love these chores.
I love the meetings with deadly bores.
I love my job-I’ll say it again.
I even love these friendly men,
These men who’ve come to visit today
In lovely white coats to take me away.
By Dr. Seuss
