What an interesting way to get financial advice!  Who knew that the children books by Dr. Seuss were so financially spot on?  Some of the gems from the article are below:

 

Never Choose? You’ll Always Lose

“It’s awfully awfully awful when you can’t make up your mind!” — “Hunches in Bunches”

Get a Career to Have No Fear

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” — “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!”

Bucks Don’t Bring Luck

Seuss’s “Daisy-Head Mayzie” portrays a young girl who sprouts a daisy from her head that makes her incredibly rich and famous, but the story echoes the old adage that money can’t buy you happiness when Daisy discovers she feels all alone despite her great wealth.

Be Clean to Save Green

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” — “The Lorax”

Every Pill Brings a Bill

“When at last we are sure you’ve been properly filled, then a few paper forms must be properly filled so that you and your heirs may be properly billed.” — “You’re Only Old Once”

Try Something New to Get a Clue

“I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them Sam I am!” — “Green Eggs and Ham”
