Most of us know Dr. Seuss because he was famous for writing children’s books and his clever sayings. He was a pretty inspirational guy. I did an art extra credit presentation on him because I think he is fascinating and you’ll find out why! His real name was Theodore Seuss Geisel. He was a cartoonist, writer, and poet. Originally he went to school to be a teacher because he had no idea what else he wanted to do. His doodlings caught the eye of a fellow student and she told him that he should draw for a living so that is just what he did. This lady later became his wife. The reason that I find Dr. Seuss to be such an incredibly human being is because the man can basically do it all. Most people don’t know that during WWII he drew political cartoons that he took a lot of criticism for. Since he was too old to join the draft, he wanted to have some sort of effect on the war so he drew political cartoons to get people involved and to satirize the people that the US was at war with. So not only was he a children’s cartoonist and author or an inspirational character, but he also drew political cartoons. With me being a history nerd, I find it pretty cool!




About Daily Inspiration

My name is Alexandra Mortallaro but most people call me Alex. I'm from Kansas City, Missouri and I have the greatest family on earth. I'm a sophomore at the University of Northwest Missouri State University. The only organization I'm involved in currently is Phi Mu and I have absolutely loved every minute of it since I joined! My major is Political Science and my minor is Criminal Justice. I'm a firm believer in following your dreams and doing whatever you put your mind to. One of my dreams after finishing my undergrad is to score outrageously high on the LSAT and get accepted into a great law school somewhere in Los Angeles. After that my dreams are infinte and you'd laugh at me if you heard them! In my spare time, when i'm not hanging out with friends or family, you can usually find me on pinterest or twitter. My favorite topic to search on Pinterest is quotes because it can be extremely uplifting at times when you need it most which is why I chose to write my blog on Inspiration. I truly deem inspirational quotes one of the best ways to get yourself out of a "funk" and back into doing what you love. If I can make at least one person's day by doing something so simple as posting something inspirational then hey I must be doing something right!
