Dr. Seuss, aka Teodor Seuss Geisel, born on March 2, 1904, is celebrating his 108 birthday today! The man behind Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, If I Ran the Circus, was born in Springfield, Massachusetts to parents Theodor and Henrietta Geisel, German immigrants.

As a child Dr. Seuss, spent most of his time at the zoo, where his father was the director. His childhood memories at that zoo, gave Dr. Seuss the inspiration for his beloved, by millions of kids and adults, book characters.

Here are the Top 5 Dr. Seuss Quotes we LOVE:

1. “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 one who'll decide where to go,” from Oh, the Places, You’ll Go.

2.“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go,” from I Can Read with my Eyes Shut.

3.“A person's a person, no matter how small,” from Horton Hears a Who.

4.“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere” from One Fish, Two Fish, Blue Fish, Red Fish.

5.“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You,” from Happy Birthday to You.

 

And happy 108 to you Dr. Seuss!
