Ted Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

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

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.” 

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” 

“Oh, the things you can find if you don’t stay behind!” 

~ Dr. Seuss

One of the greatest writers of children’s books ever, Theodore Geisel Seuss was a man who devoted his life to writing and storytelling. For over 60 years, children of all ages from all over the world have been inspired by his zany, wacky, stupendous, fantabulous stories that have put smiles on the faces of so many people. As a child, I read all his classic books – “Green Eggs and Ham”, “The Cat in the Hat”, “Horton Hear a Who” and “Oh, the Places You’ll Go”. One of my all time favorite stories by Dr. Seuss is “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” which even to this day brings a tear to my eye when I watch it every Christmas season. Seuss was a Pisces like myself which is why I feel such an affinity with him. His work is genius and brilliant in every way and fortunately still lives on through printed pages and video. If you haven’t shared any of Dr. Seuss’s stories with your children or seen them yourself, be sure and do yourself a favor and read all his books and watch all his animated movies. You just might rediscover the child in you that you thought was gone. Now that would be wonderfullicious!
