and I said what I meant
An elephant’s faithful,
One hundred percent.

More from Dr. Seuss

Young cat! If you keep
Your eyes open enough,
Oh, the stuff you will learn!
The most wonderful stuff!

I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

“Don’t give up! I believe in you all.
A person’s a person, no matter how small!
And you very small persons will not have to die
If you make yourselves heard! So come on, now, and TRY!”

Horton Hears a Who! (1954)

“My friends!” cried the elephant.
“Tell me! Do tell!
Are you safe? Are you sound?
Are you whole? Are you well?”

Horton Hears a Who! (1954)

My shoe is off.
My foot is cold.
I have a bird
I liked to hold.

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

Don’t give up! I believe in you all
A person’s a person, no matter how small!
And you very small persons will not have to die
If you make yourselves heard! So come on, now, and TRY!
