The Wise Words of Dr. Seuss






Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss

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


Theodor Seuss Geisel March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991)

In this time when you really don't know what the future will bring.
I suggest taking 7 min. and listen to the place that you'll go by the good old Doc.
This is the Last book he wrote before he Passed away and I believe it carries one of his most profound messages :)

  7. I love Dr. Seuss. One of my favorites is "Who Are You Sue Snue" which has a similar to "Oh the Places You'll Go."

    Green Eggs and Ham is another great one. My sons like to hear it daily. I like it so much that I plan on using it next semester in my College Freshman English class to prepare my students to think about the deeper message of literature.
