Dr Seuss Quote on Life & About Leading Life
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
When you think things are bad, when you feel sour and blue, when you start to get mad… You should do what I do! Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky! Some people are much more…Oh, ever so much more…Oh, muchly much-much more unlucky than you!” “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”
“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”
“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”
“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”
“Only you can control your future.”
“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…”
“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!”
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
“It’s a troublesome world. All the people who’re in it
are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you’re lucky you’re not.”
“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”
And while you are at it, lines to ponder about from Dr. Seuss “Oh, the Places You Will Go!”
You can get so confused
that you’ll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place…
…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or a No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.
That’s not for you!
Somehow you’ll escape
all that waiting and staying.
You’ll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.
