10 Memorable Dr. Seuss Quotes About His Work
1. On how a childless person could write so well for kids: “You make ‘em, I amuse ‘em.”
2. On writing books kids actually want to read: “I have great pride in taking Dick and Jane out of most school libraries. That is my greatest satisfaction.”
3. On where he gets his ideas: “I get all my ideas in Switzerland near the Forka Pass. There is a little town called Gletch, and two thousand feet up above Gletch there is a smaller hamlet called Über Gletch. I go there on the fourth of August every summer to get my cuckoo clock fixed. While the cuckoo is in the hospital, I wander around and talk to the people in the streets. They are very strange people, and I get my ideas from them.” (He wasn’t a fan of this question, apparently.)
4. On what would happen if he were invited to a dinner party with his characters: “I wouldn’t show up.”
