A person is a person, no matter how small.

Adults are just obsolete children.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.

Fun is good.

How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before its afternoon.
December is here before its June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?

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. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.

I meant what I said and I said what I meant.

I start drawing, and eventually the characters involve themselves in a situation. Then in the end, I go back and try to cut out most of the preachments.

Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky!

Maybe Christmas, he [the Grinch] thought, doesn’t come from a store.

My alphabet starts with this letter called yuzz. It’s the letter I use to spell yuzz-a-ma-tuzz. You’ll be sort of surprised what there is to be found once you go beyond ‘Z’ and start poking around!

Now… thanks to your hacking my trees to the ground, there’s not enough Truffula Fruit to go ’round.

Preachers in pulpits talked about what a great message is in the book. No matter what you do, somebody always imputes meaning into your books.

Shorth is better than length.

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!

Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way.
Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite. Or waiting around for Friday night or waiting perhaps for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil or a better break or a string of pearls or a pair of pants or a wig with curls or another chance. Everyone is just waiting.
When at last we are sure, You’ve been properly pilled, Then a few paper forms, Must be properly filled. So that you and your heirs, May be properly billed.

You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.

You make ’em, I amuse ’em.

You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in.
