Wise Words

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

Isn't this a wonderful quote? It was Diane Sawyer's parting words last week as she left Good Morning America to join World News Tonight and she was quoting Dr. Seuss, American Writer and Cartoonist best known for his collection of children's books.

Wise words and not the only quotes by Dr. Suess that could change the way we look at things for the better...

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

"Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

Dr. Seuss credited his Mother with both his ability and desire to create the rhymes for which he became so well known. In his lifetime he illustrated 44 children's books, including such all-time favorites as Green Eggs and Ham, Oh, the Places You'll Go, Fox in Socks, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. His books have been translated into more than 15 languages. Over 200 million copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world.

Some people are just gifted and can see and say things that most cannot. It does seem that those who have this gift are often the ones who love to share...lucky for us!
