– Dr. Seuss
what is this book? cause i read the quote online, but i can’t find what book it’s from?
Oh! The Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss 🙂
I love Dr. Seuss. The Lorax is one of my favorite books of his. Have you ever read “Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!”? He started it before he died, but never finished it. Then his publisher and I think his secretary took all his notes and sketches and put it together after he died. It is classic Seuss about what type of people make the best teachers and how it is better to learn how to learn than to learn dreary facts. If you haven’t read it, you should. You will love it, too! Peace, Linda
Interesting, will add it to our book list! My kiddos and I will go book hunting today for Hardy Boys — used books. If we don’t find ‘Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!’ , will buy new — hopefully the local bookstore have it. Thanks Linda for the recommendation! Keep it coming please.
Succeeded with Hardy Boys
but not with “Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!”
but it’s on my hunting list
or maybe now I’ll be forced to order on-line.
I found a book though by Julia Cameron
“The Complete Artist’s Way”
and with the introduction alone
I am now loving it!
I wish I could spend a day with D. Seuss, too. Those were wise words. 🙂
Ella and us will have fun inventing words with him!
Reddity readily bug blahblah blog blag bog!
Dr. Seuss was quite committed to deep insights and personal truths. Just look at “Oh The Places You’ll Go” or “The Lorax”…
yes, for all ages!
Oh The Places You’ll Go..
“Will you succeed? Yes, you will indeed.
98 3/4% guaranteed.”
What I love about Dr. Seuss books
is that you can take it earnestly
or in wonderment.
The Lorax is best taken earnestly
despite its Gluppity Glup.
I agree; Dr. Seuss was a rare one who could write the same piece effectively for young children as an entertainment piece-introductory literary tool, for older children as a thought-provoking item, and for still older children and adults as a call to action. Amazing, amazing.
that’s why he’s one of my fave.
I can pick him up
regardless of the mood I’m in
and I’m looking forward
to reading it with my grandkids
in maybe 20 years time.
Who knew that Dr. Seuss was so deep! Very thought provoking quote! 🙂
Yes he is.
Just need to dig deeper
through those laughter.
The digging itself is fun.
In fact, I want to jump and run while digging.
How does one jump and run at the same time?
Dr. Seuss would know! 🙂
He sure did, after all he knows so many silly things!
You know I don’t mean negatively when I say silly, right?
I wished I could spend a day with him and talk about silly things.
But now no more, he is already in the grave
so I’ll just be contented with his books
and imagine what he’s thinking while writing.
