I heart Dr Seuss…

Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.A quote from the Dr Seuss book “Happy Birthday to you”

Words to live by from Dr Seuss. If you ever want to read some really apt, pithy, meaningful quotes, search for any quote page featuring him.

It’s true, Dr Seuss books are, on the whole,  ridiculous.  That’s why they are so much fun. And by being fun we remember them.

I like to read them even now just for the rhythm of the words and to admire the crafting that went into a seemingly simple story.

Dr Seuss books are great to read aloud to little kids.  I mean it’s never too early to learn the odd absurd word, is it? 

Full of absurd words, but perhaps not quite so fun, is my all-time favourite, The Lorax. Written in 1971 it’s an environmental wakeup call given before saving the environment was the popular (and urgently important) cause it is today. A tale of ripping down the environment to make something stupid we don’t even need.

Pity we didn’t listen way back then. I bet the Brown Bar-ba-loots wish we had too.

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
