Todays Seuss-ism comes from I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!

Today's Seuss-ism comes from The Lorax and teaches us about quality.

Many Seuss books deal with topics of quality - quality in the tasks we perform, quality with which we treat each other, and the quality with which we treat our environment.

Are you working towards quality of life?

Todays Seuss-ism comes from McElligot's Pool and is just one of the times Seuss shows us how to be patient:

If I wait long enough;
if I'm patient and cool,
Who knows what I'll catch
in McElligot's Pool!

Todays Seuss-ism comes from The Strange Shirt Spot and serves as a reminder to us that it is never a good idea to obsess.

This spot! It was driving me
out of my mind!
What a spot - what a spot
for a fellow to find!
My troubles were growing.
The way it kept going!
Where would it go next?
There was no way of knowing.

It's funny how much we hate trying new things - especially when we are young. Todays Seuss-ism from Green Eggs and Ham is just one instance of how the good doctor showed us that new can be a good thing.

I do not like
green eggs
and ham!
I do not like them,

You do not like them.
So you say.
Try them! Try them!
And you may.
Try them and you may, I say.

Seuss taught us the skill of Multitasking. Todays Seuss-ism comes from The Cat in the Hat

I can hold up the cup
And the milk and the cake!
I can hold up these books!
And the fish on the rake!
I can hold the toy ship
And a little toy man!
And look! With my tail
I can hold a red fan!
I can fan with the fan
As I hop on the ball!
But that is not all.
Oh, no.
That is not all...

I meant what I said
And I said what I meant...
An elephant's faithful
One hundred per cent!

I absolutely adore Horton. Thankfully Seuss gave us several books with this character, and loyalty is just one of the many ethical lessons we enjoyed learning from him.

How much do you value loyalty?
