"You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so...get on your way!" -Dr. Seuss
Years after his passing, Dr. Seuss' uplifting poems and whimsical characters continue to inspire readers everywhere.
Theodor Seuss Geisel has influenced lives through his literature for generations. Though his work focused on children's literature, his simple yet catchy phrases are beloved by people of all generations because of the meaning and lessons behind his stories. From the Fox in Socks to the timeless Cat in the Hat, all of the publications by Dr. Seuss are nothing less than iconic.
His work has been honored by the multiple productions such as How the Grinch Stole Christmas starring Jim Carrey, The Lorax with Zac Efron, and the highly successful Broadway musical, Seussical.
In honor of National Poetry Month, the Gladeo League acknowledges a writer who has taught valuable lessons through entire generations. Dr. Seuss' legacy will live forever, as his readers continue making a gourmet meal of green eggs and ham.
You have brains in your head
You have feet on your shoes
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose
You're on your own
And you know what you know
You are the guy who'll decide where to go
