An Awesome Book - Quotes

An Awesome Book!

Yes, there are places in the world where people dream up dreams
so simply un-fantastical and practical they seem…
to lose all possibility of thinking super things
Dancing wild animals with diamond-coated wings
Instead they dream of furniture
of buying a new hat
of owning matching silverware
Could you imagine that?
Instead they lay awake at night wishing for a car
Not one that runs on jellybeans but one that’s reg-u-lar
They dream of breakfast sandwiches they dream of telephones
Sometimes they even dream of dreams that aren’t even their own.

An Ode to Brevity by Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

It has often been said
there’s so much to be read,
you never can cram
all those words in your head.

So the writer who breeds
more words than he needs
is making a chore
for the reader who reads.

That’s why my belief is
the briefer the brief is,
the greater the sigh
of the reader’s relief is.
