Quotation of the Week

Every week, I’ll put up a quotation related to writing or creation and tell you a little bit about the person who said it.  I’ll try to vary the speakers as much as possible.

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.” - Dr Seuss

Hopefully, you know a bit about Dr Seuss.  His full (real) name is Theodor Seuss Geisel.  He was a writer, poet and cartoonist.  He is especially known for his children’s books, including The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!.  He also worked as an artist for advertising campaigns and as a political cartoonist.  Some of the images from these works later found their way into his children’s books.
