Tons of Dr. Seuss Quotes to Celebrate Dr. Seuss Birthday!


Dr Seuss quotes are the most magical words in children’s literature. To quote Dr. Suess on his birthday we say:

If we didn’t have birthdays,
you wouldn’t be you.
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you do?
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you be?
You might be a fish!
Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of
hard green tomatoes.

Thank you Dr. Seuss! To celebrate Dr. Seuss birthday in our house we re-read The Lorax this morning for the 50 millionth time, and we have Oh The Places You’ll Go and of course The Cat in the Hat on tap for this evening. My favorite Dr Seuss quote of all time is:

If you never did,
you should.
These things are fun
and fun is good.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
Dr. Seuss, Oh The Places You’ll Go

On and on you will hike
and I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are.

You’ll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up
with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s
a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.
Dr. Seuss, Oh The Places You’ll Go

“From there to here,
from here to there,
funny things are everywhere.”
Dr Suess, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

All the turtles are free
As turtles and, maybe,
all creatures
should be.”

someone like you
cares a whole awful lot,

It’s not.”
Dr Seuss, The Lorax

he thought, “doesn’t
come from a store.
Maybe Christmas…
perhaps…means a
little bit more!”

“If we didn’t have birthdays,
you wouldn’t be you.
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you do?
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you be?
You might be a fish!
Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of
hard green tomatoes.”
Dr Seuss, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
