To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, we’ve provided some of his most beloved quotes below:

1. “With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you’re too smart to go down any not-so-good street.”

2. “Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting so get on your way!”

11. “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

12. “I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

13. “So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that life’s a Great Balancing Act.”
