The signs as Dr Seuss quotes

Aries: “If things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too.” 

Taurus: “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!”

Gemini: “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

Cancer: “To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.”

Leo: “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”

Virgo: “It is fun to have fun but you have to know how.”

Libra: “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” 

Scorpio: “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

Sagittarius: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

Capricorn: “I’m afraid that sometimes you’ll play lonely games too. Games you can’t win ‘cause you’ll play against you.”

Aquarius: “Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.” 

Pisces: “Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.”

All: “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

Okay so let’s talk about The Lorax movie for a second.

Specifically these people:

This is Dan and Rose. Their son Wesley “kind of glows”. Toward the climax of the movie, during the big musical number Let it Grow, they decide “that’s not good”. But let’s examine that.

The implication as given toward the beginning of the film when these characters first appear is that Wesley glows as a result of some kind of pollution, most likely nuclear in origin (because, let’s face it, what else could they be referring to?). Now right off the bat, you might be inclined to agree. Yes! It is indeed bad that this child has been exposed to some kind of nuclear waste and now glows as a result! Won’t someone please think of the children?

Wait. Pause. Back it up. This child was exposed to NUCLEAR WASTE and the worst he has to show for it?

He glows.

HE. F**KING. GLOWS.

Okay, let me explain the implications of this. Your child not only SURVIVED something that should, for all intents and purposes have been FATAL to any other human, let alone a child, BUT from what it appears, the only ill effect he seems to be suffering from is that he glows now.

DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS TO YOUR WORLD?

YOUR SON IS QUITE POSSIBLY IMMUNE TO THE EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR RADIATION AND ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT IS F**KING TREES.

Look. I’m not saying that conservation efforts aren’t important. Pollution is bad. Deforestation is bad. But this child could very easily hold the secrets to helping other humans survive exposure to radiation, or more urgently, he could be the answer to treating victims of nuclear exposure.

YOUR CHILD MIGHT BE THE NEXT STEP IN HUMAN EVOLUTION.

THE F**K ARE YOU DOING SINGING ABOUT TREES? GET THAT CHILD TO SOME F**KING SCIENTISTS.
