Today you are you! That is truer than true!

Today, Theodor Geisel a.k.a Dr. Seuss celebrates his 107th birthday. Chances are, you are very familiar with his popular books and grew up enjoying the rhyming, silly pictures, and fun stories. Even though we’re all grown up now (or are we?), Dr. Seuss stories still hold a place in our hearts and remind us how important it is to be ourselves, unleash our creativity, follow our dreams, find and love the weirdness in the world, and have fun with life!

Pull your favorite Dr. Seuss off the shelf, dust it off, and take a few moments to read. Or dye your eggs green. In the meantime, here are a few great, inspirational Dr. Seuss quotes to start your day – related to determination, exploration, and being you.

If you never did
You should.
These things are fun.
and Fun is good.
-One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

A person’s a person, no matter how small.
-Horton Hears A Who

You oughta be thankful
A whole heaping lot
For the people and places
You’re lucky you’re not.
-Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

Young cat! If you keep
Your eyes open enough,
Oh, the stuff you will learn!
The most wonderful stuff!
-I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
-The Lorax

“Only you can control your future.”

I’m afraid that sometimes you’ll play lonely games too.
Games you can’t win ’cause you’ll play against you.

-Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

“Be who you are and say what you feel because
those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

-Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
