Dr. Seuss – 30 Quotes to Change Your Life
As a child growing up, I never really imagined Dr.Seuss would change my life, or for that matter have any impact on my life much past my early years. I recently happened upon this picture, and I loved it! Dr. Seuss has an amazing way with words, and I love to read these books with my kids!
As an adult I love to find inspiration in quotes and words from others.
In fact as you may know my husband and I were foster parents to teenagers who needed a home, and we had a quote at our front entrance to our home for years that was from Dr. Seuss! Quote # 11.
My foster girls would read that and I would be willing to bet that all the kids that were in our home know that quote off the top of their heads, and hopefully sometime in their life they will remember that quote and know that they can choose any path they desire for their lives!
Dr. Seuss causes us to think about things in a different manner than we otherwise might have and I love that about these quotes!
If you are like me, you may want to print these out, or even hand write them on sticky notes.
If you have young children (school age) these would be 30 days of lunchbox messages that you can use to inspire your children to be more!
I believe today there is too much emphasis on allowing children to strive for meritocracy and average. I think as parents it is our duty and obligation to encourage our children to be MORE! Dream big, and never stop believing in their dreams!
If we do not encourage our children to strive for more, we create a society of average and mediocre people!
I see it far too often in the school system, and in the foster system… so many times I was told…
- If the children are not in trouble with the law we are happy
- If the children are not doing drugs, and only smoking pot we are happy.
- Buy them condoms, and get them birth control when they are 12 and we are happy.
- If they are at least passing their classes we are happy.
- If they are attending more classes than they are skipping we are happy…
My question is happy about what??? Encouraging children to be average is like accepting that they should choose to BE Average!
We always expected more from our kids, and we expect more from ourselves!
Teach your children to be MORE, and know that life is what YOU make of it! No-one will give you a hand out or a hand up to a better life, someone may give you a hand out to exist, but certainly not to soar!
There is a big difference between existing and living!
Challenge yourself and your children to LIVE your DREAMS!!
See you at the top! Where there is room for everyone!!
