ChatterQuote March 2012

Continuing with this month’s theme our quote this time naturally comes from a famous Pisces, Dr. Seuss, born March 2nd, 1904. Descended from German immigrants, Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer, poet and cartoonist, best known for his children’s books, which no doubt many of you will have read growing up. He published a total of 46 children’s books, each one infused with his imaginative characters and rhymes.


Dr . Seuss- March 2nd, 1904 – September, 24th, 1991
 
I like nonsense – it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope… and that enables you to laugh at all of life’s realities.

Some of his better-known titles are Green Eggs and HamThe Cat in the Hat and Red Fish, Blue Fish– excuse me, did he say red fish, blue fish, and isn’t the symbol for Pisces made up of 2 fish? One of his later stories The Lorax, which chronicles the plight of the environment, was recently made into a movie and was released on March 2nd, 2012, which would have been Dr. Seuss’ 108th birthday. Seuss died in 1991 at the age of 87, which was still pretty good!
