Celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday with these Dr. Seuss quotes and sayings! It’s March 2 and it’s the birthday of our favorite writer, artist, and cartoonist.
Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss is one of the most inspiring and influential American writers of his time. His books are children’s classics and occupy a special place in our family libraries. Thanks to his pen and wild imagination, Dr. Seuss’ gang of impossible creatures made our childhood colorful with their crazy antics, penchant for getting into trouble, and anapestic tetramemeter.
On the far-away Island of Sala-ma-Sond,
Yertle the Turtle was king of the pond.
A nice little pond. It was clean. It was neat.
The water was warm. There was plenty to eat.
The turtles had everything turtles might need.
And they were all happy. Quite happy indeed.
