Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Remembering the amazing Dr Seuss with some of his witty, wacky and fun quotes:-
“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”
“From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.”
“Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky.”
“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
“I’m sorry to say so but, sadly, it’s true that bang-ups and hang-ups can happen to you.”
“ 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.“
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out.”
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
“From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.”
“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”
“You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.”
“You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in.”
“ASAP. Whatever that means. It must mean, ‘Act swiftly awesome pacyderm!”
Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.”
“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”
“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!”
“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”
“Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.”
When Shaye was a toddler, she made me read these books over and over again. And I could never skip any pages. She had memorized every page. Lol!

Joke of the day – Heaven

A teacher was testing the children in her Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven. She asked them, “If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into Heaven?” 
“NO!” the children answered.
“If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven?”
Again, the answer was, “NO!”
Now she was smiling. Hey, they’re getting it, she thought! “Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into Heaven?” she asked.
Again, they all answered, “NO!”
She was just bursting with pride for them. “Well,” she continued, “then how can I get into Heaven?”
A five-year-old boy shouted out, “YOU GOTTA BE DEAD.”

Quote of the day – C. JoyBell C.

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to 
allow them to do things for themselves,
allow them to be strong,
allow them to experience life on their own terms,
allow them to take the subway… let them be better people,
let them believe more in themselves.”

You don’t get to fill them with your favorite colors.”
