10 of my favorite Dr.Seuss quotes

"Put me down," said the fish. "I do not wish to fall!"

“Look at me! Look at me!
Look at me NOW!
It is fun to have fun
But you have to know how.”

“And this mess is so big
And so deep and so tall,
We cannot pick it up.
There is no way at all!”
― The Cat in the Hat

“I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny,
but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.”
― The Cat in the Hat

“You oughta be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the people and places you’re lucky you’re not.”
― Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

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

“When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad…
you should do what I do!
Just tell yourself, Duckie,
you’re really quite lucky!
Some people are much more…
oh, ever so much more…
oh, muchly much-much more
unlucky than you!”
― Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

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

“Be grateful you’re not in the forest in France
Where the average young person just hasn’t a chance
To escape from the perilous pants-eating plants!
But your pants are safe, you’re a fortunate guy.
You ought to be shouting, ‘How lucky am I!’”
― Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

“You can find magic
wherever you look.
Sit back and relax,
all you need is a book.”
“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild,
to pick up a book and read to a child.”
― ??

be your name Buxbaum, or Bixby, or Bray,
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!”
― Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
