Dr. Seuss (1904 – 1991)

Better known by his pen name, Dr Seuss, was an American writer and cartoonist most famous for his children's books.
Dr. Seuss
You make 'em, I amuse 'em.
Seuss quotes
Now all that was left 'neath the bad-smelling sky
was my big empty factory...
the Lorax...
and I.
The Lorax said nothing
just gave me a glance.
Just gave me a very sad, sad backward glance.
He lifted himself by the seat of his pants
and I'll never forget the grim look on his face
as he hoisted himself and took leave of this place
through a hole in the smog without leaving a trace
and all that the Lorax left here in this mess was a small pile of rocks with one word.
"Don't give up! I believe in you all.
A person's a person, no matter how small!
And you very small persons will not have to die
If you make yourselves heard! So come on, now, and TRY!"

Seuss Dr. quotes
The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold, wet day.
Seuss Dr.
"You're going to be roped!
And you're going to be caged!
And, as for your dust speck hah!
That we shall boil in a hot steaming kettle of Beezle-Nut Oil!"
Dr. Seuss quotes
We looked! Then we saw him
Step in on the mat!
We looked! And we saw him!
The Cat in the Hat!
Dr. Seuss
And suppose that you lived
In that forest in France
Where the average young person
Just hasn't a chance
To escape from the perilous
Pants eating plants!
Seuss Dr. quotes
And that is a story that no one can beat,
When I say that I saw it on Mulberry Street.
I meant what I said,
and I said what I meant
An elephant's faithful,
One hundred percent.
Seuss Dr.
On the fifteenth of May, in the Jungle of Nool,
In the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool,
He was splashing... enjoying the jungle's great joys...
When Horton the elephant heard a small noise.
Dr. Seuss
Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

Dr. Seuss quotes
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
Dr. Seuss
I am the Lorax! I speak for the trees,
Which you seem to be chopping as fast as you please;
But I also speak for the brown Barbaloots,
Who frolicked and played in their Barbaloot suits,
Happily eating Truffula fruits.
Now, since you've chopped the trees to the ground
There's not enough Truffula fruit to go 'round!
And my poor Barbaloots are all feeling the crummies
Because they have gas, and no food, in their tummies.
Seuss quotes
You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.
Seuss Dr.
"Maybe Christmas", he thought, "doesn't come from a store."
"Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!"
Seuss Dr. quotes
In Who-ville they say
That the Grinch's small heart
Grew three sizes that day!
Dr. Seuss
"My friends!", cried the elephant.
"Tell me! Do tell!
Are you safe? Are you sound?
Are you whole? Are you well?"
Dr. Seuss quotes
From there to here,
from here to there,
funny things are everywhere.
Dr. Seuss
"This", cried the Mayor, "is your town's darkest hour!
The time for all Whos who have blood that is red
To come to the aid of their country!", he said.
"We've GOT to make noises in greater amounts!
So, open your mouth, lad! For every voice counts!"
Seuss Dr.
"Mister!", he said with a sawdusty sneeze,
"I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees.
I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues,
And I'm asking you, sir, at the top of my lungs"
He was very upset as he shouted and puffed
"What's that THING you've made out of my Truffula tuft?"
