Happy Birthday Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss!!!!!!!!!!!! March 2, 1904 - September 24 1991

I dont care what anyone thinks, but Dr. Seuss is the greatest American author of ALL TIME. I say that because he not only inspired generation upon generation of young people with his work, but he also was the embodiment of different. HIs classics include: Green Eggs and Ham, Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Oh the places you'll go, and many more. Although I am a ninja, his books hold a special place in my heart (sounds kinda soft huh?..oh well). As a matter of fact when I learned to read the first books I read were Dr. Seuss books.  Dr. Seuss was also born in MA, so in my eyes that makes him even more AWESOME. When he died on Sept 24 1991 (wow, thats two days after I was born) he had written and illustrated 44 books. He is a legend.

"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"
— Dr. Seuss
"Oh, the things you can find if you don't stay behind!" 

"Being crazy isn't enough."  Dr. Seuss
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." 

"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You." 

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." 
 Dr. Seuss

"Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!" 
 Dr. Seuss

"So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads."
— Dr. Seuss
