20 Inspiring Dr. Seuss Quotes

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss - Inspiring QuotesGrowing up, I loved Dr. Seuss. Between his rhyming, characters, and creative one-of-a-kind stories, I just couldn’t get enough of his books. Today, not much has changed. Although Dr. Seuss speaks the language of children, his stories also have the ability to inspire adults. My favorite book of his has always been “Oh, The Places You’ll Go.” As a child, it made me believe I could do great things. And as an adult, it inspires me to push myself and reminds me that I can do anything I put my mind to.

In honor of his 111th birthday, here are some of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes:

1. “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”

2. “When you’re in a slump, you’re not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.”

3. “Kid, you’ll move mountains.”

4. “And will you succeed? Yes, you will indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)”

5. “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

6. “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”

7. “Think and wonder. Wonder and think.”

8. “You are you. Now, isn’t that pleasant?”

9. “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

10. “You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.”

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

12. “Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”

13. “Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky!”

14. “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”

15. “Be who you are and say what you mean. Because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

16. “To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.”

17. “Life’s too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.”

18. “Only you can control your future.”

19. “Step with care and great tact, and remember that life’s a great balancing act.”

20. “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”
