Oh, the Places Youll Go! 10 inspirational Dr. Seuss quotes for kids young and old
Sure, we've all tried to be smarter, prettier, funnier ... but have you ever tried to be more you? Dr. Seuss reminds us the importance of simply being ourselves.
Be the change you want to see in the world
Just like the Lorax speaks for the trees, we need to speak up for the causes that mean something to us. Remember: Any person, no matter how small, is capable of changing the world (or even just yours).
As parents, we do our best to raise kids with good sense and the tools they need to succeed, but ultimately they choose their own direction. Encourage them to dream big.
Don’t be afraid to try new things
New experiences make us smarter, more culturally aware, and yes, sometimes they just help us learn that we don't like something. If you never try, you'll never know.
For everything we have, there is someone, somewhere, who has less. Be gracious … and giving.
Knowledge is power
Dr. Seuss reminds us the power of a good book — it can both take us to incredible places and give us the knowledge we need to go further in school, our jobs, and more!
Find humor everywhere
Trust us, life is hard enough. The ability to laugh when you could cry, get angry, or give up in despair is a skill we should all hope to master.
Fitting in isn’t everything
From tweens and teens to middle-aged parents, we all have a habit of conforming to what people think is normal. Dr. Seuss reminds us it's okay to stand out from the crowd.
Its okay to fail
Sure it's fun to be the best of the best, but there's also a lot to be learned from those times you don't come out on top. Failing — and doing so graciously — is an experience kids young and old can learn from.
From the President to a stranger on the street to all of the tiny people in Whoville, every person matters and deserves to be treated equally.
