Dr Seuss

March is Dr Seuss' birth month. I want to share my fave quotes of his:

We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love

Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.

You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You'll get mixed up with many strange bird 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 you right foot with your left.

Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.

You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So.. get on your way!

And I want this last one read at my funeral:
I'm glad we had the times together just to laugh and sing a song, seems like we just got a started and then before you know it, the times we had together were gone.

Hi Triesti,

That's a very good quote.

But ...... I am very sad at your last sentence about words for the funeral.

I am aware that we are all going that way, but life is WONDERFUL, be Joyful! Common ..........

Please write about your plans in life, about your hobby, about fashion, about places you have visited etc.

Harry, I am actually quite happy at the moment. Life's getting better. I just need to put that one down so that when it's time, and it read out, it wont be such a sad event. Promise, I'll write about places I'm visiting.

Terrible. Till a minute ago I never ever heard about Dr Seuss. Roald Dahl, yes. Astrid Lindgren, yes. And Annie M.G. Schmid , evidently yes.

I confess that if only by the quotes you provided I do really regret my ignorance. "Life's a Great Balancing Act".. wonderful!

@colson, you can discover Dr Seuss together with Kris and Esha.. that'll be great times..
