10 quotes from Dr. Seuss that everyone should know

1. I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

2. You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go.

3. Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

4. It's high time you were shown, that you really don't know all there is to be known.

5. Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

6. And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quaters percent guaranteed.

7. Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way.

8. Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.

9. Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try.

10. If you never did, you should, these things are fun and fun is good!

As Audrey would say: What a load of waffle!

We've all had to write the dreaded English paper, with correct spelling, grammar, and the inexhaustible list continues perpetually. Then, after you yourself have perfected this piece, you hand it off to the nearest cookie (personage), to do what you hope will turn out to be constructive criticism, but in the end, hands you an additional load of depression.
Well, I'm not even at the "additional load of depression" yet, and already, my brain is a load of waffle, or (in the words of Jamie) Gobbledygook!
This is a tribute to all those who have pressed forward with waffled gook for a brain but finished the final word, the final sentence, only to find you have another hour of perfectionism to go. Good luck to those of you who may still be in that stage of your pointless endeavor.
