Oh, the Places You'll Go!
by Dr. Seuss

Oh, the Places You'll Go is a story telling you how much you can thrive. If you put your mind to something you can go great places, you can do anything. You might get depressed at certain points in your life, but everything will be okay. It says you need balance in your life, which is absolutely true. If you don't have balance, you could get very sad, or you would be too happy. I think being too happy isn't human. Being human is about having emotions and feelings and being alive.

When you read a children's book as a child, you don't understand what the story is really trying to tell you. Maybe when you are older, you still don't understand what it is trying to say. Oh, the Places You'll Go is a story talking to you (this means the book is in second person). It is telling you that you could do great things if you tried. "Everyone is just waiting. NO! That's not for you! Somehow you'll escape all that waiting and staying." You might have ups and downs, but you will always flourish in some way.

It is also reminding you that you have a life. Dr. Seuss says, "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes." You are on this Earth to make a difference. Maybe it is to help people by talking to them about a traumatic experience. Or maybe it is to fly people to France every week. Maybe you were put on this Earth just to be here. So you know what the sun's rays feel like on your eyelids, or to know how good it feels to laugh.

I really like your implications and they can relate to my life very well. I always try to put my mind to things and try to achieve my goal.

I can agree with your implications and good way to relate them to life because you are put on this world to do something weather your good at it or not.

I really liked your presentation. The implications were very meaningful. I like I try my hardest to do well too, and often tell people in my life not to worry if they aren't good at one thing, because there is something they were meant to do.

I agree with your implication because I too believe that everyone one is here for a reason and you can't let others tell you how to live your life. You have to discover new things have new experiences to fulfill your potential.

I agree with your 2nd implication about how we should make a difference in life and that we were put here for a reason because you never know when someone is having a bad day and you go talk to them and make them feel better, that might change them or change their view on life.

Excellent Implications, they made me think about my life. Also, your implications and summary were very well written, you should go write a book or something.
