Happy 113th birthday to you, Dr. Seuss! We’re celebrating the birth of this genius of writing illustration with his children’s book Happy birthday to you!

As Funicular Goats take the birthday child to the Birthday Flower Jungle and the Birthday Pal-alace with its fifty-three hamburger stands, Dr. Seuss reminds them, “Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”

“I do believe, though, that there are a great many people who are leading nearly perfect lives and are unaware of it. They don’t realize their own good fortune or they won’t admit it to themselves. There is such a disease as chronic dissatisfaction, and it’s about the most insidious and fatal disease any man or woman can have. So many people do not know until it’s too late how splendid things have been for them.”

… “I resolve to let Tomorrow take care of itself. It always has.”

- CLARK GABLE (1st Feb 1901-16th Nov 1960)

Happy frickin birthday, man.

“The tough thing about describing Clark Gable is that there’s nothing bad to say.” ~Mervyn Leroy

“…he was one of the few men at MGM, hell, in Hollywood period, that had the reputation of being an all around nice guy…rare thing, that.” ~Katharine Hepburn

Happy 113th Birthday to the one and only King of Hollywood, William Clark Gable!

Happy 113th Birthday Colin Clive! {20 January 1900 – 25 June 1937}

Dear Colin,

I think you’d be surprised how loved you still are. You are alive to us in so many ways. Not in the way we want you to be but certainly in every other way. We share your sorrow, your romance, and your rare moments of joy. We treasure every scrap of information we can find on you. Every picture, every interview, every moving image is sacred to us. We wish you could have lived forever and you do in spirit, probably long after we’ve gone too.

With Greatest Affection,

Your Admirers: 

Sarah,
