Yay, another Dr Seuss quote! (Here’s my first) He has so many beautiful quotes that I could probably start a new site dedicated to just adapting his words (I’ve thought about it, seriously). Even though this is one of his most well-known quotes and it’s attributed to him all over the internet and even in print, Wikipedia claims it’s actually from Bernard Baruch. I don’t know who to believe – if anyone can help, please leave a comment.

UPDATE: Thanks to readers for providing this link which investigates the origin of the quote – looks like there’s no definitive source.

Thanks to Lucrezia, Leslie and Megan for submitting this quote.
