Wisdom from Dr Seuss
Thing thing, what is that thing?
Thing sing, that thing can sing
Song long, a long, long song
Goodbye thing, you sing too long
Dr. Seuss is brilliant.
I love this particular section of “Hop on Pop”
The reader is introduced to a thing.
We discover that the thing can sing
We learned that the thing’s song is longer than we expected
We move on because that silly thing is now wasting our time.
There is a great lesson here: sometimes something new or novel catches our eyes – but that does not mean it has staying power.
Consider all the fads out there, all the things that come and go. There is greater value in being timeless.
What about you is timeless?
I used to have a mullet. Thank God that was not a timeless part of me.
What types of things are timeless?
These are all attributes that we can hold on to. Qualities that truly are timeless.
