Dr. Seuss: 25 quotes on his birthday

Dr. Seuss (aka, Theodor Seuss Geisel), one of the most influential writers and illustrators of our time, was born on March 2, 1904. His dozens of books for beginning readers – including "The Cat in the Hat," "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish," and "Green Eggs and Ham" – have been overwhelmingly read and loved since he began publishing in the late 1930s. Today works by Seuss can be found in nearly every elementary school in the United States. To celebrate his birthday, here are 25 quotes from this American icon.

1. On Christmas

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” 

– From "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"
