greg anka
a big bowl of dr.seuss in the morning is a good way to start the day.
love it! need to remind myself of this more often.
thats more than words can say:)
yeah!! coz the person who knows and loves you best, would accept you of who you really are....
awwwwwwww love it.!!!!!!!!
#soinspiring =3
Asma A.
thats soo true pple should like u the way u are
I wonder if Seuss would say if someone was cutting their throat that those who matter don't mind and those who mind don't matter?  It would seem just the opposite.  
yeah.. Real beauty comes from within.. Aww!!!
Aha I like this quote and I love Dr Suess even tho he's not alive hes still making a huge difference in this world i still read his books and im a teenager!
so this quote totally says that its okay to hate gays because that's who you are and you don't have to care about how others may think. 
No, Snook chaipornvadee,  it doesn't say that at all.  It's pretty self-explanatory... Be yourself regardless of what others think.  If they don't love you for you then they obviously aren't of any importance in your life.  If they love you as an individual then that is an important person in your life...
Snook, that was a wild interpretation of a simple quote. Sheesh! It's more about being yourself and those who like you will like you regardless. And if they don't, then they weren't your friend. Nothing to do with out complicated political and human rights arena. :)

very true 
Well that just says your true friends are your friends for who you are so be yourself always and the people that find to like the way you act will be your friends and not just for school but forever 
i really dont understand what that rhyme means??????
Zekaria it means that people that try and get you to change your personality, looks, or the way you act are not your true friends your true friends are the ones who accept you for who you are and are your friend because of who you are
Dr. Suess was a brilliant mastermind. 
Wise man Dr. Seuss.. Also very funny children`s story writer. Love his books!!!!
Well, it sounds nice, it rhymes and all, and I love Dr. Seuss, but frankly this doesn't actually mean anything.
munju s
what about good manners?
I've loved it also.  We should always be who we are.
don't you ruin a dead mans words
and i loved all his books in my young years
i'm 14 1/2
Nice Quote Ever Seen!
I m saying wat i feel that ur thought is really tru;p
I dream of a Church of The Seuss philosophy!! 
I think it means to say... be yourself, it will only bother those who don't like you anyway, as those who do (like you for you) won't mind at all :)

Some people like clowns, some don't?
Some people like silence, some don't?

Everybody is different, but birds of a feather, will always flock together, and in such cases, there will always be outsiders..

This saying also applies well to peer group pressure... Is anything really worth sacrificing our sense of integrity for..?

Be yourself, it may not make you popular, but at least you'll know who YOU are :) and then you can start your own flock :)

Peace to all :)

That.s a pretty cool Frase.I like that!
that is really true. speak up, stand up!
people who matters dont mind ?
Hell i wont give my friend a chance to disgrace his/her self in public or what are friends for "dr"
I love Dr Duess he's so down to earth and gives people a smile OB faces! :)
who  love`s   that  ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm    hhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahha
oh he was such a wise old man.too bad more people don't take what he said to heart.
Main nahi smjha, kya hain yar ,dil kol k bat kr
"say what u FEEL???"..... REALYY?????
even the offensive staf??? hmmmm, strange world.
Yep I got teased cos I said what I liked and a girl called fraya sage started to tease me
r u replying to my post or the saying??
Always reminding myself and others of this.
nice, My mind 's full of confidence and those who matter don't mind.
its very old thought ... share something new.
So, stay true to who you are!
Very true.... I don't mind hehe
Only wise and strong person can disregard the opinion of those who don't matter. Everyone else can't screen from their stinging remarks.
Ummm.... But most people who would possibly mind what you feel are those who feel for you, and those who won't mind are those who don't. In which case Dr. Seuss probably is at his bottom when he wrote it or maybe he just quoted his whore. Its a a go ahead to those who want to rebel. This is like declaring that you don't matter al all. It sounds good but not with feelings? No no. Maybe with idea, belief, principles, is ok. Please be careful!. 
But if some people "be" themselves then the result could be disastrous!
All good points everyone, definately made me weigh my comment.
in this case just be your self
They did'nt mind bcs it didnt mater. But I'll not mind even it matters.
The Social Network is full of wisdom quotes, which are more than precise, but in real life no one is paying attention or is driven by these quotes...unfortunately. I hope I am wrong...

dr seuss says the most amazingest things..
Never realized this was attributed to Dr. Seuss.
those who analize this quote is for people with intelligence and wisdom
e.j va
Great way to start the day, cup of coffee and some wisdom quotes by Seuss
Dr.seuss you make good movies books and videos
Oh never mind, it doesn't matter.! Ha.
Long story short, Conditional relationship cannot last long.
say what you feel? that could get you into trouble :)
I like this one, it makes sense. I feel like that about a couple of people.
This is a powerful message that can only be truly understood by those who crae more about their friends than their image
I hate these type of idioms constantly posted across all social networks.  Especially when they are done on behalf of dead people like Theodor Seuss Geisel, Albert Einstein et al.  I've seem this one posted several times on google+ under different sources with different images, it's getting very boring.  One more profile to block from my stream I guess.
No words could be truer.
Add me to ur inner circle and I will aim to amuse and inspire you. :))
 how many matter can you solve it ? that s big matter. do you know bout that kind of matter. matter is also a matter. 
lol, Paris Hilton tried to claim this as her own quote
mue mak
yeah,that s life!
Stick to the right thing,this is nice.
why dosent every one stand up for echother  that would make the world a better place and we would all know that violence isn't the key to life   
Whaaa??!!?? Angry religious type? Or was this a BOT? I mean look at the sentence structure. Undress gear look yourself? Or was this a translation error from someone whose translator turned a good quote into something to hate? Very strange.
that way we can rise above the other people that are criminals and all different bad people in the world so stop being pushed around we are all strong stand up for your self 
BS. This was not said by Dr Seuss, just everybody says so, hence it becomes true.
From wikiquotes:
Bernard Baruch in response to a question by Igor Cassini as to how he handled the seating arrangements at his dinner parties, as quoted in Shake Well Before Using: A New Collection of Impressions and Anecdotes Mostly Humorous (1948) by Bennett Cerf, p. 249; the full response was "I never bother about that. Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter." This anecdote is also quoted online at It has also become part of a larger expression, which has been commonly attributed to Dr. Seuss, even in print, but without citation of a specific work: "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
+Bailey clayton would you stand up for someone advocating violence? It is impossible to stand up for everyone because people have conflicting ideals.

Anyway, it is a great quote. It is funny that people think less of it because they can't apply it to every aspect of life. If you are coming up with a rebuttal to this quote, read your own post and ask yourself this question: "Is that what Dr. Suess meant, or am I just twisting his words?"
stand up for what you believe in,and let no one walk over you.we live in a world full of hate,and people who have rotted souls.what can we really do?
I like that quote from Dr. Seuss. It is so true.
Dr. Seuss was and excellent author. May he rest with plenty of his own books to read. 
I've always enjoyed Dr.Seuss and I completely agree with this statement! :D
I been lovin this show for years now my kidds lov it

So true... Saves us time and effort :)
I like what ur trying to say
Wish I could practice that principle more often! Trying to!!!
I love Dr. Seuss and so do my kids.
agreed had this written on my bathroom mirror in middle school. Got to have a good reminder. ✨😉
thats true because its like a friend and best friend thing if the friend was a true friend then they wouldnt mind you being who you really are but the truth is when it comes to them calling themselves a true friend that wouldnt tell you to not say what you feel and let you be who you want to be  because most of the time thay dont want you to be who you really are they want you to be what they would expect you to be. be youself!!!!!!!!!!!!! love who you are!!!!
this is verry true u should lisghen 2 it.

Lou Eva

That's very true! I remember reading Dr. Seuss when I was little got to love him!
Be honest with your self and don't care about others.
Suess was a genius - also a bit pervy - check out The Secet Art of Dr. Seuss to see what I mean.

Lets yhu know who ur real frands are.
he he heeeee it gets to me every time
what if you are a bad person
true but all things dont need to be said
Well, unless it's your wife that minds.  Then it matters.
Dr.Seuss always has the best advice
you're such a genius Dr. Seuss
Isn't Seuss great? So true.
This is the only quote I can remember, good advice

i used that advice.... my boyfriend and i had a confession talk
we are now happily together
yes its true thy wont mind in what good you well do for than.
I like this quote because its important to be yourself and say what you believe because it don't matter what people think if they mind what you they are not worth it and the people who don't mind you love it!!! ONG I JUST MADE UP MY OWN QUOTE KINDA!!!! IDK
