Tomorrow — March 2 — is the birthday of Theodore Geisel, better known by his pen name, Dr. Seuss (rhymes with ‘Joyce’ not ‘Zeus’). Since his death, every March 2 we celebrate Dr. Seuss Day. It’s a day for reading to children — whether you read them Dr. Seuss books or anything else, it doesn’t matter. It’s just important to read! As he said himself: “You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”

To celebrate this day, I thought I’d pick out some of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes to share with the Velsoft team.

  • “Think! You can think any Think that you wish!”
  • “When he worked, he really worked. But when he played, he really PLAYED.”
  • “Simple it’s not, I am afraid you will find, for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.”
  • “Today I shall behave, as if this is the day I will be remembered.”
  • “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”
  • “Think and wonder, wonder and think.”
  • “Only you can control your future.”
  • “It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become.”
  • “You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!”
  • “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”
  • “Take every chance. Drop every fear.”
  • “You do not like them. So you say. Try them! Try them! And you may!”
  • “Oh the things you can find, if you don’t stay behind!”
  • “If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good.”
  • “People are weird. When we find someone with weirdness that is compatible with ours, we team up and call it love.”
  • “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
  • “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
  • “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”
  • “Don’t give up. I believe in you all.”
  • “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
  • “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”
  • “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
  • “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
