Happy Birthday Dr Suess

Today is Dr Suess's birthday.

I love Dr I am sure you do as well.....or at least I hope you do...other wise there is something wrong with you.

His use of words whether real or ones he invented himself have charmed children for years.
The colors and characters he used in his stories are what make children grab the books off of the shelf.

I also love the various quotes from him. Some silly, some funny, some sad but all with a ringing of truth.

Here are some of my favorites

"I meant what I said and I said what I meant."

"Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive that is you-er than you."

"Don't cry because its over. Smile because it happened."

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. Its not."

"I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. 
Some from ahead and some 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."

"How did it get so late so soon?
Its night before its afternoon.
December is here before its June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?"

And my two favorites......

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

"The more you read, the more things you will know. 
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

So Happy Birthday Dr. Suess!!!!
Thanks for 
the inspiration
the silliness
the joy
the love
the memories.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

"Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one"

Did you know he was sort of scared of children and somewhat reclusive because of it?

Bravo, I LOVE Dr Seuss and yes, there is something wrong with someone who does not agree.
My favorite quote is the smile because it happened but I also really love the ones that matter don't mind. :)
