The Lorax may be a short rhyming picture book, but it is full of plenty of quotes that make up think about the ways morality and greed play major roles in business and capitalism. Keep reading for our favorite Lorax quotes!

A Thneedie is a Million Dollar Idea?!

You poor stupid guy! You never can tell what some people will buy.

This quote from The Lorax seems to be the essence of all business. How can you know what will be a dud and what will bring in the big bucks? The Thneed totally reminded me of a Snuggie, and it appears that I was not alone . Just like the Thneed, the Snuggie came in like a lion and whimpered out like a lamb.

Like a Man Without a Plan

…business is business! And business must grow regardless of crummies in tummies…

It’s obvious that the Lorax is showing us the consequences of unchecked capitalism, but we are also shown that a business without a plan is definitely going to fail. The Once-ler definitely didn’t think it through when he cut down Truffula Trees two by two (OMG we just made a rhyme!). How can you have a sustainable business when you don’t develop a method to replenish or replace your resources?

Sí Se Puede

“UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” is one of the best Lorax #quotes #SeussSayer Click To Tweet

Now, that is one of the Lorax quotes we all need to live by! Put that on a bunch of stickers and slap them on every open space you can find. If we want better, then we have to be better. We can do it!

Just Like Pringles

There’s no cause for alarm. I chopped just one tree. I am doing no harm.

Famous last words! How many times have you told yourself that you’re just going to have just one cookie, but then you wake up from your sugar coma and realized you just ate the entire box?! Oh…just me and Cookie Monster? Well, if cookies aren’t your thing, replace cookies with beer or wine or cigarettes or a bump of cocaine…wow, that escalated quickly, but you get what we’re saying, right?!

Stand Tall

A tree falls the way it leans. Be careful which way you lean.

Of all the Lorax quotes, this quote reminds me of something my elders would always tell me: “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” There is no need to follow the winds of what is trendy. Just stand as tall and beautiful as a Truffula Tree in your truth, and just be yourself. You are the best you that you can be! #SeussSayer
