“This”, cried the Mayor, “is your town’s darkest hour!
The time for all Whos who have blood that is red
To come to the aid of their country!”, he said.
“We’ve GOT to make noises in greater amounts!
So, open your mouth, lad! For every voice counts!”

I would not like them anywhere.
I do not like green eggs and ham.

The more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
The more places you’ll go.

Oh, the Places You'll Go! (1990)

Your eyes open enough,
Oh, the stuff you will learn!
The most wonderful stuff!

“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!”
