Dr. Seuss Day!

Happy Dr. Seuss Day!  Today is that famous man's birthday - his real name is Theodor Seuss Geisel.   He published 46 children's books and many other poems and things.  Today, to remember him, I have decided to post some of the numerous and random quotes by him.  Some of them, which may seem senseless, also have more than the surface, and a deeper meaning.  So enjoy these quotes from Dr. Seuss!
