    Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer, poet, and cartoonist. He was most widely known for his children's books written and illustrated as Dr. Seuss. He had used the pen name Dr. Theophrastus Seuss in college and later used Theo LeSieg and Rosetta Stone. Geisel published 46 children's books, often characterized by imaginative characters, rhyme, and frequent use of anapestic meter. His most-celebrated books include the bestselling Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, Fox in Socks, The King's Stilts, Hop on Pop, Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose, Horton Hatches the Egg, Horton Hears a Who!, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!. His works have spawned numerous adaptations, including 11 television specials, four feature films, a Broadway musical and four television series. He won the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in 1958 for Horton Hatches the Egg and again in 1961 for And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street.

During World War II, he worked in an animation department of the United States Army, where he wrote Design for Death, a film that later won the 1947 Academy Award for Documentary Feature.

    I like this brief but very insightful quote on life - by Dr. Seuss: 'Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.' Things change. Seasons change. Fashions change. People change. Everything passes. Familiar doors close and new doors open. Opportunity knocks, and circle of life goes on. Life moves on. Thus the beauty and the essence of Life can be summarized, IMHO, in just two words 'Life continues!' So, don't worry, be happy, and be in sync with ebbs and flows of life. Make it a good one!

    I like this brief and highly insightful advice, by Dr. Seuss, about anything that happens in life: 'Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.' Things change. Seasons change. Fashions change. People change. Everything passes. Familiar doors close and new doors open. Opportunity knocks, and circle of life goes on. Life moves on.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I aime ce conseil brève et très perspicace, par le Dr. Seuss, à propos de tout ce qui arrive dans la vie: 'Ne pleure pas parce qu'il est fini, le sourire, car il est arrivé.' Les choses changent. Saisons changent. Les modes changent. Les gens changent. Tout passe. Portes familiers proximité et de nouvelles portes ouvertes. Occasion frappe et le cercle de la vie continue. La vie continue. Ainsi la beauté et l'essence de la vie peuvent être résumées, à mon humble avis, en deux mots de la vie continue! oui, ne vous inquiétez pas, soyez heureux, et être en phase avec les flux et reflux de la vie. La vie continue. Faire un bon!
