But Dr Seuss (Ted Geisel) did not say that. The label in the Goodreads quote said that the quote was “attributed” to Dr Seuss without any source.

Yet, in the entirety of the work that the author has done or all of the public appearances that he has made, the quote cannot be proven authentic. This isn’t a valid, big deal. Still, it raises the more fundamental question of determining the truth in the absence of the traditional grids for vetting — the news networks and The Encyclopedia Britannica have been replaced by a “maker culture” filled with bloggers and Wikipedia.

Wikipedia also has “volunteer” librarians (rather than Wikipedias) who assist in scouring the web for information to preserve these websites’ integrity. However, it could be helpful to have a salaried staff to provide an element of credibility to sources like Wikipedia and Goodreads and, in reality, are getting more and more relied upon by every aspect of culture.

“Don’t weep as it’s done. Smile because it happened” Dr Seuss

At our annual 13th Storybook Breakfast, we paid tribute to the legend Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr Seuss) because there aren’t many names that are as well-known with the world of children’s books as Dr Seuss!

Our talented stage decorators had lots of fun. They truly brought the stage to life with their fun characters that conveyed the essence of Dr Seuss, and, as always, each table featured an original storybook theme!

Bottom line

To me, the quote by Dr Seuss means not to be upset over the events that happened and can’t be altered but instead be content with the outcome. Change in your life is good regardless of whether it’s positive or negative. If there was no change in our lives, it is a much lesser cycle that repeats time and time. A smile can be a significant change in mood and smiles express joy, sadness and happiness. I chose this quote since it brought me back to the changes throughout my personal life and how they helped me move forward.
