Wise & Relatable Dr. Seuss Quotes to Inspire You For Finals

Dr. Seuss quotes are extremely inspirational, and while Dr. Seuss books are often tailored towards children, there is a lot you can take away from the quotes as an adult as well. Here are a few of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes to inspire you for the finals period approaching all too soon!

“There are so many things you can learn about, but / You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut...The more that you read, the more things you will know. / The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

“Only you can control your future.”

“You have brains in your head. / You have feet in your shoes. / You can steer yourself  / Any direction you choose.”

“So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. / And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act. / And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) / Kid, you’ll move mountains.”

“Oh the things you can find, if you don’t stay behind!”

“Don’t give up! I believe in you all. / A person’s a person, no matter how small! / And you very small persons will not have to die / If you make yourselves heard! So come on, now, and TRY!”

“How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. / December is here before its June. / My goodness how the time has flewn. / How did it get so late so soon?”

“And when they played they really PLAYED. And when they worked they really WORKED.”

“You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!”

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

“Think and wonder, wonder and think.”

“You’ll be on your way up! You’ll be seeing great sights! You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.”

“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!”

“I’m sorry to say so but, sadly it’s true that bang-ups and hang-ups can happen to you.”

“Whenever things go a bit sour in a job I’m doing, I always tell myself, ‘You can do better than this.'”

We hope some of these quotes inspired you to keep pushing on, and good luck with the last few weeks of the semester. Please feel free to share your favourite Dr. Seuss quotes with us below in the comments as well!
