Dr Seuss Quotes from The Lorax for Read Across America Day


dr seuss quotesIt’s Dr Seuss ‘s birthday! We’ve given you some fabulous Dr Seuss quotes from books and some personal Dr Seuss quotes.

Now, let’s talk about The Lorax.  It is an environmentally aware tale, though back when it was first released, that didn’t go over so well!  It was viewed as unfair to the logging industry.  But, now, The Lorax is seen as a cautionary tale. 

On Dr. Seuss’s birthday next year, The Lorax movie is scheduled for release, starring Zac Efron, Betty White, and Danny Devito.

Here are some Dr Seuss quotes from The Lorax:

“I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees.
I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues”

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

“He lifted himself by the seat of his pants
and I’ll never forget the grim look on his face
as he hoisted himself and took leave of this place
through a hole in the smog without leaving a trace
and all that the Lorax left here in this mess was a small pile of rocks with one word.
