Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

Theodore Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904.  Had he not died in 1991, Dr. Seuss would have been 106 today.  I couldn't resist sharing a few favorites of his choicest quotes.

"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."

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

"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."

When I was a kid, we had this video that I watched all the timeKathy Najimy was in it, it was awesome.  She played a nosy reporter who gets sucked into the world of Dr. Seuss' stories.  They set some of them to music, there's puppets and cartoons.  You learn all about his life as a child, early adulthood working in advertising and his political involvements.  They close with this quote, and though it always makes me a little sad, I feel like it is a great summation for a whole host of things.

"How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?"
