Living Life the Dr. Seuss Way at The Oak & Rope Company

The wisdom from the quotes we carve is too great not to share...

This is the first in a serie of blogs about some of our favourite sources of inspiration!

The wisdom of Dr. Seuss , with his distinctive ability to embed profound life lessons within simplistic, humorous quotes, never fails to captivate us. His emphasis on stimulating imagination, advocating individuality, upholding the merit of hard work, while equally exploring the thrill of adventure, beautifully aligns with our philosophy both at home and throughout our workshop.

It's hardly a surprise that we often find ourselves engraving his inspirational quotes onto our products!

In the hallway stands a central hub of the home's comings and goings, making it the ideal place for a verse from Dr. Seuss. Selected quotes can serve as an inspiring mantra as you step out each morning or a comforting welcome as you return.

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose." -Dr. Seuss

From mirror frames, benches to bespoke shoe racks, the words of Dr. Seuss make a heartwarming addition. Pictured above, one such quote adorns a shoe rack, offering daily motivation.

Why not engrave, "Oh, the places you'll go!" on a peg rail? The possibilities are as limitless as the adventures Seuss often speaks of.

Dr. Seuss' pearls of wisdom transcend beyond children's literature, presenting timeless lessons that are equally relatable and valuable to both youngsters and adults alike. This fact makes his quotes an exceptional choice for presents designed to last a lifetime.

Our favorites include these Christening Present bookends, beautifully engraved with:

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." -Dr. Seuss

These bookends make the perfect gift from a godparent, marking the beginning of a child's fruitful journey in the pursuit of knowledge. Pair it with a set of Dr. Seuss books, and you're providing a treasure trove of wisdom and wonder to kick-start their bright future!
