The Immortal Seuss
If I was to mention the name Theo Geisel the majority of people would have no idea who that is however if I was to mention Dr Seuss, to this day adults and kids alike will know his work and have an emotional attachment to perennial stories such as The cat in a hat and The Grinch. Dr Seuss had the ability that few possess to create timeless classics with meanings that were relevant 50 years ago and will be relevant in another 50 years time. As well as the fun, loveable characters and storylines there are several moving quotes that have a powerful message that offer true inspiration and gives Seuss immortality.
“It is better to know how to learn than to know.”
There is an abundance of information out there the issue comes about when people are asked a question and answer with “I don’t know” and switch off at this point. If you know how to learn, you can pretty much learn anything you need to know. Knowing how to obtain any information you need is a skill in itself, rather than have your head filled with a bunch of things you don’t absolutely need to know.
“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”
This has to be one of the most famous quotes from Dr Seuss . We were all brought into this world with our own versions of happiness, our own versions of success. There never has been or never will be another you in this world, what do you want to leave behind?
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
How different would the world we live in today be, if it wasn’t for people such as Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa who cared an awful lot for what they believed in. Conformity is the norm in this day and age but without those who are prepared to voice what they believe in nothing will change.
These are just a few of many quotes that carry a powerful message. Dr Seuss is one of the most famous children’s authors of all time his ability to see the world through the eyes of a child and portray valuable life lessons inspires people globally.
