Here are some of my favorite quotes from the inspiring and imaginative Dr Seuss.
"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose."
"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"
"Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope."
"It’s opener there in the wide open air."
"You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And you are the one who’ll decide where to go."
"Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them."
"You’ll be on your way up! You’ll be seeing great sights! You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights."

"If you never did you should. These things are fun, and fun is good."
"Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one."
"There's no limit to how much you'll know, depending how far beyond zebra you go."
"All alone! Whether you like it or not, alone is something you'll be quite a lot!"
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory."
"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere."
"With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street."
"It is fun to have fun but you have to know how."
"And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!"
"You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So... get on your way!"
"I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny."
"Things may happen and often do to people as brainy and footsy as you."
"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you."
"Oh the things you can find, if you don’t stay behind!"
"I've heard there are troubles of more than one kind; some come from ahead, and some come from behind. But I've brought a big bat. I'm all ready, you see; now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!"
"If you keep your eyes open enough, oh, the stuff you will learn. Oh, the most wonderful stuff."
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go."
"It's high time you were shown that you really don't know all there is to be known."
"There are so many things you can learn about, but you’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut."
"Read. Travel. Read. Ask. Read. Learn. Read. Connect. Read."
"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."
"Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!"
