Thought for the Weekend - Dr Seuss

My thanks to Brendan Dunne (Twitter@BrendanD100) for this week's Thought for the Weekend on 120 Socks official 1st Birthday.

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

- Dr Seuss -

I was delighted when Brendan suggested this quote for this weekend, as I vividly the Dr Seuss books when my children were younger.  My eldest daughter was dyslexic, so we had lots of Dr Seuss books and her favourite was the Cat in the Hat - I bet she can still say the whole book by heart.  Below is the part that no doubt still floats into my dreams, I heard and read it so many times!  If you have your own Dr Seuss memories, let me know, if YOU can get the comment box to work (blogger messing things up lately).

"too wet to go out,
 and too cold to play ball,
they just sat in the house,
 and did nothing at all,
and all they could do
 was to sit, sit, sit,
and they did not like it,
not one little bit..."


  1. He was never part of my childhood, nor my children's. Perhaps I should explore his work now, with the excuse of reaching my second childhood? :)

  2. Great quote!
    love the fun in these books- read them aloud
    to many younger family members, and then school kids! thanks.

  3. Great fun and wit for sure Izzy:)

  4. I never read his books, but I think I might just start, cool quote

  5. One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. I'm glad you are on the mend, and have a lovely weekend!

  6. And I meant quote, not book, but I like all the books, too! ;-)

  7. Yeap Michelle - you should deffo check them out, especially in with your teacher hat on!

    Thanks Amberr - Have a great weekend:)

  8. I love Dr. Seuss!

    And this quote is the best advice ever. :)
