Dr. Seuss Quotations

Short and sweet:  In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, March 2nd, I thought I’d compile a list of quotations. Do you have a favorite?

  • “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”
  • “I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, . . . and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”
  • “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”
  • “I meant what I said, and I said what I meant.”
  • “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
  • “Sometimes the questions are complicated, and the answers are simple.”
  • “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
  • “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!”
  • “Only you can control your future.”
  • “They say I’m old-fashioned, and live in the past, but sometimes I think progress progresses too fast!”
  • “You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.”
  • “Be awesome! Be a book nut!”
  • “So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.”
  • “Christmas doesn’t come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more….”
  • “Nonsense wakes up the brain cells.”
  • “Fill your house with stacks of books, in all the crannies and all the nooks.”
  • “You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.”
  • “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
  • “Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s a great balancing act.”
