Full of life, positivity, and simplicity, these Dr. Seuss quotes stand the test of time and win the hearts of readers time and again. Before he started writing, many writers had pointed out that there was a dearth of appealing books for children and that was the prime reason kids were not interested in reading. Dr. Seuss changed that view completely. With rhymes and clever use of repetitions, appealing crazy tales, and inimitable illustrations, he alone taught millions of children to read and it won’t be wrong to say that the children literature would never have been the same without his contribution. We hope that you enjoyed reading these quotes. After all, you all are off to a great place and today is your day.
