Who’s Birthday is it?

Read the following line and tell me whose birthday it is.

“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…”

Not sure yet? Try this one.

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

I had never heard this one before but I like it!

“So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.”

I think you may know, but if you’re not sure, this last little bit will just give it away.

“I meant what i said and i said what i meant. An elephant’s faithful one-hundred percent!”

Thank you Seuss for all the fun. Thank you Seuss for ever one!
