If Dr. Seuss were still alive today, he would be from there to here, from here to there. He would be everywhere... and a whopping 111 years old. 

The beloved American writer and cartoonist famously quipped, "You have to be odd to be number one," and he penned a prolific 46 books in his lifetime (and another one is coming out this summer). Incredible inspiration, but just the tip of the iceberg. He made cat people — and Seussophiles — out of all of us, from the young children who were fascinated with his whimsical characters to the adults who found his mischievous humor endlessly captivating. 

So, today, on his birthday, we celebrate Dr. Seuss (born Theodor Geisel) with 10 inspiring, deceptively simple quotes from his published works. Because truly, all we really need to know in life, we've learned from Dr. Seuss.  

P.S. We would attempt a tribute rhyme, but Andy Newman at the New York Times  beat us to the punch.
