A person’s a person, no matter how small.

All alone! Whether you like it or not, alone is something you’ll be quite a lot.

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

Christmas doesn’t come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more.

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

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.

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

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.

I’m sorry to say so but, sadly it’s true that bang-ups and hang-ups can happen to you.

If you keep your eyes open enough, oh, the stuff you will learn. Oh, the most wonderful stuff.

If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good.

It is fun to have fun, but you have to know how.

It is opener, out there, in the wide, open air.

Oh, the things you can find if you don’t stay behind!

Only you can control your future.

Simple it’s not, I am afraid you will find, for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

There’s no limit to how much you’ll know, depending how far beyond zebra you go.

They say I’m old-fashioned, and live in the past, but sometimes I think progress progresses too fast!

Think and wonder, wonder and think.

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

Today is gone. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.

Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way.

Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

You are you. Now, isn’t that pleasant?

You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who will decide where to go.

You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!
