Quotes from the Good Doctor for Those Who Are Suffering ...

Okay, the quotes didn't come
from this book, but you can
consider them gospel if you like!
The doctor in this case is Dr. Seuss, who had a great many wise things to say ... often couched in rhyming verse.

For those who are suffering from losses of any sort, but particularly those who have lost a loved one ...

“Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.”

For those who are struggling with difficulties ...

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.

For those who are having troubles and need some perspective ...

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!

For those who are afraid to be themselves (and who isn't at some point or other) ..

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

And finally, for those who are struggling with big questions ... 

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.

For more, read those Dr. Seuss books again, no matter how old or young you are ... or check this site for more Seuss wisdom:
