Our spiritual duty, then, is to listen to our intuitive impulses, to believe them, act on them and declare them.
Love these quotes.
I learned at UC San Diego hospital where Dr Seuss & his wife have A museum telling all about their selves and all his books are there. And when he died he left a lot of money to UC San Diego to make sure they continue progress with children. The gift shop has a woman working there who knew him well and can tell you anything. The worker has an older daughter who is autistic and he helped her become a scientist.
This sure takes me back to my childhood! So cute. Thanks for sharing!
