I love “Seuss-isms”… How about you?
As a kid I was always in awe with Dr. Seuss books. The images and the colours flew off the pages and came to life. The rhyming and peculiar choices of words, not only told a vivid story, but they seemed to have a lesson to be learned too.
Dr. Seuss books seemed wacky and weird, eccentric and entertaining, fascinating and fun, and oddly enough those “Seuss-isms” were educational too.
Did you know that Dr. Seuss’ real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, and that he published 46 children’s books?
Here’s just a few of my favourite quotes that inadvertently taught a lesson or two…
Truth be told – there’s so many great ones to choose from. (I’ll have to share more some other time).
Well let’s get this “Seuss-ism” lesson party started shall we…
“Think and wonder, wonder and think.”
“From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.”
“Oh the things you can find,
if you don’t stay behind!”
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
“Think left and think right
and think low and think high.
Oh, the things you can think up
if only you try!”
“You’re off to great places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So get on your way!”
“If you never did, you should.
These things are fun and fun is good!”
“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”
“Step with care and great tact, and remember that life’s a great balancing act.”
And here’s one final one to round out this post…
As I said before – there’s so many great ones to choose from – some filled with motivation and inspiration and others just filled with fun.

“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”
