Oh, the Places You’ll Go quotes

“You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”
“You are on your own. And you know what you know.
And you are the guy who will decide where to go.”
“With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
You are too smart to go down any not so good street.
And you may not find any
You’ll want to go down
In that case, of course,
You’ll head straight out of town.”
“Its opener there
In the wide-open air.
Out there things can happen
And frequently do
To people as brainy and footsy as you.”
“When things start to happen,
Don’t worry. Don’t stew.
Just go right along.
You’ll start happening too.”
“You will be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers
Who soar to high heights.”
dr. Seuss quotes in oh the places you’ll go
”Except when you don’t.
Because, sometimes you won’t.
I am sorry to say so
But sadly, its true
Can happen to you.”
“You can get all hung up
In a prickle-ly perch.
And your gang will fly on.
You be left in a Lurch.”
“You’ll come down from the Lurch with and unpleasant bump.
And the chances are then, that you’ll be in a Slump.
And when you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.”
“You’ll come to a place where streets are not marked.
Some windows are lighted, but mostly they’re darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?”
“If you go in, should you turn left or right….
maybe right and three quarters? Or maybe not quite?
Or go around back and sneak in from behind?
Simple it’s not, I am afraid you will find,
For a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.”
“You can get so confused, that you’ll start in to race.
Down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace.
And grind on for miles across weirdish wild space,
Headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The waiting place….”
“For people just waiting
Waiting for a train to go
Either waiting for a bus to come, or a plane to go,
or a mail to come, or the rain to go.
Or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
Either waiting around for a Yes or a No
Or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.”

Once more you’ll ride high!
Ready for anything under the sky.
Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!”
“Oh, the places you’ll go!
There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored.”
“There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.
“You’ll be as famous as famous can be, with the whole wide world watching you win
Except when they don’t Because, sometimes they won’t.
I’m afraid that sometimes you’ll play lonely games too.
Games you can’t win ’cause you’ll play against you.”
“Whether you like it or not, alone will be something
you’ll be quite a lot.”
“There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.”
“But on you will go though the weather be foul.
On you will go though your enemies prowl.
On you will go though the Hakken-Kraks howl.
Onward up many a frightening creek,
though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak.”
“On and on you will hike, And I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems whatever they are.
You’ll get mixed up, of course, as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.”
“So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life’s
A Great Balancing Act.”

You will, indeed!
( 98 and 3 quarters percent guaranteed.)”
