Read children's books

About a month ago I ran across this quote of Dr. Seuss: "Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you". I saved it on my desktop and totally forgot about it untill today, when I was doing a little clean-up. And I remebered all the other Dr. Seuss' books and poems and how I used to read them to 'my' three little boys, of whom I took care when I was in LA. There is so much wisdom and kindness and belief in the wonderfulness of this world! And here are a few more of his wonderful words:
  • Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
  • I meant what I said and I said what I meant.
  • The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.
  • Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.
  • You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
  • Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
  • From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.
  • Just tell yourself, Duckie, you're really quite lucky! 
  • I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells.
  • And the turtles, of course... All the turtles are free -- As turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be.
  • You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.
  • Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way.
  • So you see! There's no end to the thing you might know, depending how far beyond Zebra you go.
  • Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try.
  • Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. 
  • You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you will be the guy who'll decide where you'll go. Oh the places you'll go.
So the advice of the day is: Be a child, read children's books.
