Life Lessons from Dr. Seuss!

As children, almost all of us, have read books written by Dr. Seuss. His wit, charm, zany and sensitive characters have captivated, educated, and entertained children for decades.



But, have you ever stopped to read a Dr. Seuss book as an adult? If not, you should. It's interesting, and thought-provoking, that many of his stories and quotes can inspire adults, too.

Listed below are "Five Life Lessons" from Dr. Seuss (c/o Facebook.com/GoodwillLibrarian). Take a moment to read them, and perhaps one or two (or more!) can apply to your "adulthood."



Have a great week, Everyone!

  1. These remarkable books came from a dare challenging Dr. Seuss to write a book with a limited number of words. He was able to get his message across with limited vocabulary making reading fun for children of all agee. :)

  2. Awesome quotes. I just texted one to my grandson at MIT who's feeling overwhelmed this week...midterms. He's so stressed, he's on Prilosec and antibiotics for bad stomach bacteria. Last year during mid-terms, it was mono. He still thinks he has to get all A's which isn't happening there. He could use some Dr. Suess.
