Dr. Seuss: Truisms for All Ages

A recent article in PR Daily offers up Dr. Seuss truisms as social media fodder. Although the article is clever, Dr. Seuss was much more than that.

Here is a list of 15 thought-provoking sayings from Seuss that were shared in the article. (If you want to read the whole thing, go here.)

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

2. “Be who you are and say what you feel because those that matter don’t mind, and those that mind don’t matter!”

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

4. “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

5. “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go.”

6. “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

7. “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

8. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

9. “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.”

10. “Being crazy isn’t enough.”

11. “From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!”

12. “I meant what I said and I said what I meant. An elephant’s faithful 100 percent!”

13. “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!”

14. “In my world, everyone’s a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!”

15. “How did it get so late so soon?”

About

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela Powers Hannley

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals--not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election. My platform focuses on economic reforms to grow Arizona's economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, growlocal small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs. I also stand for equal rights, choice, and paycheck fairness for women. I am running as a progressive and running clean.

My day job is managing editor for the American Journal of Medicine, an academic medicine journal with a worldwide circulation. In addition, my husband and I co-direct Arizonans for a New Economy, Arizona's public banking initiative. I am a member of the national board of the Public Banking Institute, and I am co-chair of the Arizona Democratic Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus of the Arizona Democratic Party.

I am a published author, photographer, videographer, clay artist, mother, nana, and wife. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio State University and a masters in public health from the University of Arizona. I grew up in Amherst, Ohio, but I have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1981. I am a proud member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson and the Public Relations Society of America.

My Tucson Progressive blog and Facebook page feature large doses of liberal ideas, local, state, and national politics, and random bits of humor. I also blog at Blog for Arizona and the Huffington Post.

#scarf weather! Killing time while I upload videos to the #AmJMed YouTube channel. Could this process actually become slower with the demise of #netneutrality? #tucson #midtown #scarfweather #scarfweatherishere
