D is For Dr. Seuss – My Favorite Dr. Seuss Quotes


Dr. Seuss  charactersI don’t really remember reading Dr. Seuss books when I was young.  When I was pregnant with my son, I went crazy buying books for him, but when I came across the Dr. Seuss books, I held off on buying them because at first glance I thought they looked like a whole bunch of nonsense.  Boy was I wrong!  I discovered that they imparted so much wisdom and words to live by.

Here is a sampling of some of my favorite Dr. Seuss Quotes:

  1. “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”
  2. “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
  3. “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”
  4. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
  5. “They say I’m old-fashioned, and live in the past, but sometimes I think progress progresses too fast!”
  6. “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
  7. “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind”
  8. “I meant what I said and I said what I meant.”
  9. “‎Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen Hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regrets. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is”
  10. ‘”Don’t give up. I believe in you all. A person’s a person no matter how small.”
  11. “So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.”
  12. ‘’Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
  13. “Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way.”
  14. “I’m sorry to say so but, sadly it’s true that bang-ups and hang-ups
    can happen to you”
  15. “Only you can control your future.”

    I have a soft spot for Dr. Seuss. I, and even my parents, credit him for teaching me how to read.

    So, naturally, I have a huge collection of Dr. Seuss books for my son. His quotes are amazing! SO much wisdom!

    My favorite Seuss quote is from The Lorax. “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing’s going to change. It’s not.”

    It was cute, they had it printed on all the trashcans in Seuss Landing at Universal Studios.

    Oh the places you’ll go. My all time fave Dr. Seuss book is Green Eggs and Ham. I have treasured that for ever. I also love the Growing Tree.
