Dr. Seuss Quotes

In honor of Dr Seuss’s Birthday (3-2-1904)

and Read Across America

  1. “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

  2. “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”

  3. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

  4. “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. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”

  5. “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!”

  6. “From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.”

  7. “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.”

  8. “Don’t give up. I believe in you all. A person’s a person no matter how small.”

  9. “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!”

  10. “I know up on top you are seeing great sights, but down on the bottom we, too, should have rights!”

  11. “I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant’s faithful, one hundred percent.”

  12. “Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”

  13. “Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way.”

  3. When I was leaving for college, my youth leaders gave me the book The Places You’ll Go signed by a bunch of my friends. I aboslute love that book (along with many other Dr. Seuss’ ones). He really did pack a lot of great insight into his fun to read books.

    He sure did! He is awesome. I love that book~but it is too long to read to Kindergarteners~a better book for older children, and graduation! Thanks for visiting!
