In Others’ Words: Just When You Think You Know Someone
I’ve quoted the oh-so-creative Dr. Seuss several times on this blog, usually on Fridays when I’m looking for a more lighthearted quote to end the week. I read various headlines about his birthday and the National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America week, which was this past week, and highlighted Dr. Seuss’s own particular brand of brilliance.
So, yes, I was determined to highlight a Dr. Seuss quote today.
When you are in love, you cannot fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams.
Seems for all his whimsical, fantastical characters and stories, the much-beloved Dr. Seuss was a romantic at heart.
Oh, how I love how this quote reminds us that people can be so much more than we think they are … multifaceted, deep … worth a second look. Worth our time. Because just when you think you know someone, well, they may surprise you.
