“There is quite enough sorrow and shame and suffering and baseness in real life, and there is no need for meeting it unnecessarily in fiction.” ― President Theodore Roosevelt

In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday, I thought I would just post some of his quotes.
"A person's a person, no matter how small."
"Adults are obsolete children."
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."
"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere."
"Fun is good." "How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?"
"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."
"I meant what I said and I said what I meant."
"I start drawing, and eventually the characters involve themselves in a situation. Then in the end, I go back and try to cut out most of the preachments."
Happy birthday, Theodor Seuss Geisel, one of my earliest favorite authors!
