Today is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and how can one not reflect on the genius of his gentle, inspiring words.  A few of my favorite quotes, which I believe are all words to live by. 

  • And will you succeed?  Yes indeed, yes indeed!  Ninety-eight and three quarters guaranteed
  • Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
  • Today you are you, that is truer than true.  There is no one alive who is youer than you!
  • You got brains in your head, you got feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself any direction you choose

Many say that everything you need to know you learn in Kindergarten, but maybe everything we need to learn can be found in a Dr. Seuss book.  Between The Giving Tree, the Lorax and the many messages of loving oneself as you are – these stories will remain poignant for centuries to come.

Thank you for your message, and for my favorite quote – “Why fit in when you are born to stand out”
