In honor of Theodore Geisel’s birthday and Read Across America Day your intrepid Friday Frivolity hosts have chosen a Dr. Seuss/ children’s book theme. Be sure to check the other hosts to see what they have for you. Since I recently posted Awesome Books for Third Graders Recommended by Third Graders, I decided to take a different tack. Instead I chose 8 Dr. Seuss quotes with important life lessons I’d like my son to learn.
We just finished a big report on Steve Jobs so “Think Different” is on my brain. Creative thinking can solve most of the world’s problems.
Learning to think of other people and the world is something we are working on.
This sounds better than my usual response “Suck it up, Sunshine.” (No, I don’t actually say it out loud). There are many unpleasant tasks in life and it is better to just get them over with.
Look on the bright side of life.
No “I dunno” immediately after reading the question.
Reach for the stars.
Your teachers (and parents) aren’t going to tell you everything you need to know in life. There are plenty of things you will need to learn on your own.
It is easier to learn alone in your room if you first learn how to learn.
