Thought For The Day

A quote from one of my favorite authors--

"Be who you are and say what you feel......



....because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."
-- Dr. Suess

I've always thought that instead of the essay "All I Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarden" it should have been "All I Ever Needed to Know I Learned From Dr. Suess."

Hmmm...maybe I'll have to do a blog post on that one. :)

That is my alltime favorite qoute. It is so true though!

Dr. Ken said...

Ann--you definitely should do a post on that!

cookie--you're right, and I need to keep repeating it to myself because I do tend to fall into the trap of worrying about what the ones who "don't matter" think. I need to learn to let that go!

Well Dr Ken that sounds fabulous!

Could I posibly refer someone to you after I say what I feel?

It is just that I imagine that he may think that even though it is good to express myself and that I should say whatever it is that I feel, that there may be repucussions anyway.

So could you posibly explain to him why I should not be in trouble?

Thanks very much!

Poppy--dealing with the repercussions goes along naturally with saying what you feel. You can certainly refer someone to me, but other than telling them, "Spank her harder and more often", I don't konw what I'd say. :-)

Thanks, Doc. I'll do that.

Poppy said...

You should both be glad I am not saying what I feel right now.

Dr. Ken said...

Devlin--it was the best advice I could come up with. Glad you agree!

Poppy--sometimes discretion is the better course--especially if you suspect it will save wear and tear on your botom....
