Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Today's the 106th anniversary of the birth of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.

A few Seuss quotes to rattle around in your brain today...


"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...
Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
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!
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.
You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.
Think and wonder, wonder and think.
Try them, try them, and you may! Try them and you may, I say.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
