Green Eggs and Ham is a childhood favourite for many children. Even years later, my kids still remember Sam-I-Am. These are just some of the beloved characters which Dr. Seuss, as author Theodor Seuss Geisel was best known by, left behind. In memory of his birthday on 2 March 1904, here are some of our favourite Dr. Seuss quotes.
