The Lorax

Series: Dr. Seuss
by Dr. Seuss

"Unless someone like you...cares a whole awful lot...nothing is going to get better... It's not."

Long before saving the earth became a global concern, Dr. Seuss, speaking through his character the Lorax, warned against mindless progress and the danger it posed to the earth's natural beauty.
