Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.]

Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!]

[on how he created the Grinch] I was brushing my teeth on the morning of the 26th of last December when I noticed a very Grinch-ish countenance in the mirror. It was Seuss! So I wrote about my sour friend, the Grinch, to see if I could rediscover something about Christmas that obviously I’d lost.
