Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, MA.  He would have been 111 years old today!  He is most famous for his children’s books, which he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss.  His books and quotes have entertained and inspired people for generations.  Here are some of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes:

“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…~Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You’ll Go

“Today you are you.  That is truer than true.  There is no one alive who is youer than YOU.” ~Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You

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

“You’re off to Great Places!  Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way.”~Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You’ll Go

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

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

“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try. “

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” ~Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

“A person’s a person no matter how small.” ~Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who

“The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you know, the more places you’ll go.” ~Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
