17 Amazing Optimism-Boosting Quotes By The Incredible Dr. Seuss
The man behind the pen name Dr. Seuss is Theodor Seuss Geisel – a prolific writer and a daring cartoonist from Springfield, Massachusetts, USA.
Popular with adults and children alike, his name shines next to those of cartoonist giants such as Walt Disney and Stan Lee.
During his lifetime, Dr. Seuss published more than sixty books. Some of the most popular title are: The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Lorax, Dr. Seuss’s ABC and Horton Hears a Who!
If anything, this man certainly had optimism in excess. Just consider the fact that his first book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, was rejected not one, not two, but whole twenty-seven times before it was finally accepted for publication in 1937, with the help of a friend of his who worked for Vanguard Press!
These were not the only challenges that Seuss faced in his lifetime. When WW I broke out in 1914, he was ostracized by the other kids in his neighborhood because of his German descent.
In spite of all hardships he experienced, Seuss’s profound optimism and firm belief in people’s goodness never left him.
Dr. Seuss love quotes have started many happy and long-lasting marriages in USA and around the globe.
Ironically, the man who was so dearly loved by children from all over the world, and who even won a special Pulitzer Prize in 1984 for his contribution to the enjoyment and education of the American kids, never had his own children.
Dr. Seuss’ unique writing style is characterized by his use of everyday words in an unconventional and highly original way. Therefore, some of the quotes listed below certainly challenge the reader’s witts.
