"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells."

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go . . ."
Dr. Seuss

"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."
Dr. Seuss

"Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple."
Dr. Seuss

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not."
Dr. Seuss
