Oh the places He'll go....

"Oh the Places you'll go!
There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored.
There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the wining-est winner of all!


You'll be famous as famous can be , with the whole wide world watching you win on tv...."

"Except when they don't, because sometimes they wont.
I'm afraid sometimes you'll play lonely games games too.
Games you can't win cause you'll play against you.

All alone, whether you like it or not, alone is something you'll be quite a lot.
And when your alone, there's a very good chance you'll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.
There are some down the road between hither and yon, that can scare you so much you won't want to go on.
But on you will go though the weather be foul.
On you will go through your enemies prowl.
On you will go through the Hakken-Kraks howl.
Onward up many frightening creek, though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak."

"On and on you will hike. 
And I know you'll hike far and face up to your problems whatever they are. 
You'll get mixed up of course, as you already know.
You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step. 
Step with care and great tact and remember that life's a great balancing act.
Just never forget to be dextrose and deft. 
And never mix up your right foot with your left." 

"And will you succeed? 
You will indeed. 
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

Kid, you'll move mountains!"

"So, be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or
 Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'shae, your off to great places!
Today is your day!"

"Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!"

-a section of Dr. Seuss's Oh the places you'll go.
