Amusing Inspiring Dr.Seuss Quotes






From Denny:  The author of the famed hilarious rocking fantasy world of the Dr. Seuss books was Theodor Seuss Geisel.  He has entertained generations of children who remain fans into adulthood.

"The Cat in the Hat" was written with a mere 225 words and was created as a reader for children.

His book illustrations are pure whimsy and by his own hand.  Geisel was a talented illustrator and cartoonist that worked for Standard Oil Company doing ad campaigns for 15 years.

He so charmed children that he taught millions of them to read - and succeeded at his endeavor for four generations!


Geisel died in 1991 but not before adding 44 children's books to his body of work.  Add to his impressive count that he also provided source materials for a major film, a Broadway musical and another 11 children specials.  He was awarded two Academy Awards, three Emmys and a Pulitzer in 1984.

His advice to writers: "Writing simply means no dependent clauses, no dangling things, no flashbacks, and keeping the subject near the predicate. We throw in as many fresh words we can get away with. Simple, short sentences don't always work. You have to do tricks with pacing, alternate long sentences with short, to keep it vital and alive.... Virtually every page is a cliffhanger--you've got to force them to turn it."



Some of his most popular books:

* Green Eggs and Ham





* How The Grinch Stole Christmas





* The Cat in the Hat

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons.
It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.

Preachers in pulpits talked about what a great message is in the book. No matter what you do, somebody always imputes meaning into your books.

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!

When at last we are sure, You've been properly pilled, Then a few paper forms, Must be properly filled. So that you and your heirs, May be properly billed.

We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.

If things start happening, don't worry, don't stew, just go right along and you'll start happening too.

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.

"It has often been said
there's so much to be read,
you never can cram
all those words in your head.

So the writer who breeds
more words than he needs
is making a chore
for the reader who reads.

That's why my belief is
the briefer the brief is,
the greater the sigh
of the reader's relief is.

And that's why your books
have such power and strength.
You publish with shorth! "





And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons.
It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. - How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Did you ever fly a kite in bed?
Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head?
Did you ever milk this kind of cow?
Well, we can do it. We know how.
If you never did, you should.
These things are fun and fun is good.

Why fit in when you were born to stand out?
