Good afternoon everyone. Tonight I am seeing my sister and one of my closest friends in the musical ‘Annie.’ My sister is one of the orphans (whose name I can’t recall right now) and Casey is playing Miss Hannigan. There are 4 performances (Thursday-Sunday) and I am seeing the performance 3 times. Not because I love seeing my sister dance and sing, but because I was obsessed with the movie Annie as a child and watched the DVD so many times I broke it. So, since I have no Annie DVD and I don’t think it’s on Netflix I need to get as much of an Annie fix until I find it playing on my TV again. My sister has been working her butt off for this and came home at 9:30 a few nights this week, so I can’t wait to see all of her hard work pay off.
Anyway, today, March 2nd, is Dr. Suess’ birthday. Dr. Seuss has made an impact on my life as a child and continues to make impacts on the lives of children across the world. I can recall asking my mom to read me The Cat in the Hat, asking my dad to read me One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish and truly getting anyone to read any sort of Dr. Suess books to me. Dr. Suess books filled my bedroom as a child and they fill my neighbor’s children’s bedroom now (my attic houses some of the classics of course, can’t just give away Fox in Socks or Horton Hears a Who).
Well, to honor my favorite childhood author, I thought I would share a few of my favorite quotes of his.
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
“You are you. Now, isn’t that pleasant?”
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
“If things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too.”
“Say what you feel, and do what you say.Because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
Once again, Happy Birthday to you, Dr. Seuss, and what are your favorite quotes of his?
