Stupid Inspirational Dr. Seuss Quotes For The Kid At Heart

When we all look back at our lives, there’s only one source of fantasy, silliness, and rhyme that we can attribute to so many special moments in our lives, and that source is Dr. Seuss. Its cast of silly characters thrilled us as kids during our family story time. When we grew up a little… let’s say a teenager, our anguished souls were so deeply tied to the Grumpy and then it seemed that no degree was complete without a copy of Oh the places you’ll go like the perfect graduation gift sending us into the great unknowns of adulthood. Once you come full circle and find yourself reading Dr. Seuss to your own children, you realize that his wise and silly words have been an integral part of your life and learning throughout.

Outside of his children’s books, Dr. Seuss has even more to say on topics related to books and writing, love and identity, and we’ve collected a lot of that here, along with a few lines of some of your favorite characters. Let them inspire a sticky note for your workspace, a message of encouragement to a friend or colleague, or a an instagram caption for friends announcing great news.
