Day 24 - Nonsensical Seussical!

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
― Dr. Seuss

In my mind, Dr. Seuss is a god!  No, not god with a "capital-G"...but a "god" who is human who was an uber super-caliberific amazing story-telling genius who has touched the hearts of millions!

His stories have such powerful messages!

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
― Dr. Seuss

“A person's a person, no matter how small.”
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 be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact.
And remember that life's A Great Balancing Act.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed)
Kid, you'll move mountains.”
Dr. Seuss

“Just tell yourself, Duckie, your real quite lucky.”
Dr. Seuss

“Today you are You, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
Dr. Seuss

And, every time I read my children his stories (which is often), we are taken to a world filled with imagination, life lessons, fascination, inspiration, and tongue twisters!

Which I suppose makes sense, since Dr. Seuss once said...

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

And, while I am not sure that I would ever want to live in that world...I am sure glad that he did!

Who is one of your (lower-case g) gods?
