3/2/12 – Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Standard
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” 

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” 

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.” 

“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.” 
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” 
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” 

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” 
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, 
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” 

“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.” 

“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!” 
“In my world, everyone’s a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!” 

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

“If things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too.” 

“So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you’ll move mountains.” 

“Only you can control your future.” 
“All alone! Whether you like it or not, alone is something you’ll be quite a lot!” 

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” 

“You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.” 

“They say I’m old-fashioned, and live in the past, but sometimes I think progress progresses too fast!” 

“I’m afraid that sometimes you’ll play lonely games too. Games you can’t win ’cause you’ll play against you.” 

“You’ll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.” 

“I know, up on top you are seeing great sights, but down here at the bottom we, too, should have rights.”
I got the picture below after boot camp this morning and it MADE MY DAY! Just my smurf celebrating a big day in his One Fish, Two Fish “hand”made shirt!
