Dr Seuss

Today Dr Seuss would have celebrated his wedding anniversary to his wife Helen Palmer Geisel. To mark the occasion we look at his best quotes about love and relationships and what we can learn from them.

'We are all a little weird and life's a little weird and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.'- There's nothing wrong with being odd if you're odd together- as long as you get each other- even if no one else does- that's all that matters.

'You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because the reality is finally better than your dreams.' - If you're losing sleep while lying next to your lover, you may be tired- but it's for good reason- you're happy and content with the one you're with.

'Be who you are and say what you feel because those who don't matter mind and those who matter don't mind.'- You should be honest with your partner, even if what you're about to share is negative- it's better to have an open heart with your special someone.

'Don't dry because its over- smile because it happened.'- When you arrive home from the airport after your holidays, go back to work after the Christmas vacation or reach the end of your wedding day- be grateful that you had the experience at all, not that it has come to an end.

'To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.' - Don't do yourself an injustice- you are the most important person to your partner even if many others don't even know your name.

'Today you are you, that is truer than true, there is no one a life who is youer than you.' - Stay true to who you are even when you're with someone else. It's important to be an individual when you're in love.

'I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope which is what I do and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.'- Always find time for laughter with your partner- sometimes humour can get you thought the toughest of times.

'Christmas will always be as long as we stand heart to heart and hand in hand' - It's not about the gifts we exchange with our significant others, it's about spending time together and showing each other love and appreciation.

'When he worked, he really worked but when he played, he really played'- Life is a balancing act when you're in a relationship- work hard to pay the bills and keep a roof over your head- but make sure you have fun once you're done with the grown up stuff.

'You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself in any direction you choose.'- Even when you think you've hit a bad patch- you still have each other and you can rise back up if you put your heads together and come up with a plan.
