Theodor Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) would have been 107 years old today! How many of his beloved fictional characters can you remember off the top of your head? The Cat in the Hat and the Grinch are among his best-known creatures, but he also invented scores of more obscure characters, including a Zak, a Yink and Gertrude McFuzz. Most would agree that nobody can spin a tale like Dr. Seuss could. His unique blend of wisdom and absurdity set him apart as one of the most compelling, creative children's authors of all time.

To commemorate Dr. Seuss's birthday we thought perhaps we could all trade favorite Dr. Seuss quotes. Our friends at Oceanhouse Media have graciously offered to gift a few Dr. Seuss iPad book apps to those who share a piece of Dr. Seuss wisdom on our Facebook wall (winners will be selected at random.) 

To get things started we thought we'd share some of our faves. Please click over to our Facebook page to share yours. If you don't have a favorite Seuss quote or book, tell us a story about how, if at all, he factored in to your childhood.

Look at me! 
Look at me! 
Look at me NOW! 
It is fun to have fun 
but you have to know how.

-  The Cat in the Hat

I know, up on top you are seeing great sights
but down here at the bottom
we, too, should have rights. 

-  Yertle the Turtle

For a host, above all, must be kind to his guests.

-  Thidwick, The Big-hearted Moose

From there to here
from here to there
funny things are everywhere.

-  One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish?

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

-  One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

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

-  The Lorax

Today you are you,
that is truer than true.
There is no one alive
who is youer than you.

-  The Birthday Book

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

-  I Can Read With My Eyes Shut

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’ll decide where to go.

-  Oh The Places You’ll Go

On and on you will hike, and I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems whatever they are.

You’ll get mixed up of course, as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s a great balancing act.
