Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

"Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!

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 guy who'll decide where to go."

quoted from Oh, The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss

What an amazing man and author! He has inspired so many people with writing. Disguised as books for children, the themes range from caring for the environment, to being kind to others, to the dangers of nuclear proliferation.
My favorite is still The Lorax with his message of "Unless.. someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It's not."
