Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

I thought this was a great chance to share some quotes from my favorite twentieth century poet and philosopher. Yesterday was Dr. Seuss's birthday- he would have been 105.

One that has always reminded me of Gabriel:
A person's a person, no matter how small.
-Dr. Seuss

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

Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
-Dr. Seuss

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
-Dr. Seuss

"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

and my new favorite:

"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!"
-Dr. Seuss
