“A person’s a person no matter how small.”
— Horton the Elephant (Dr. Seuss‘ Horton Hears A Who)

When I was in high school, our class got to see a Seussical The Musical production of Dr. SeussHorton Hears A Who!. The story is about an elephant named Horton who hears a small speck of dust talking to him and he eventually discovers that voice to be a tiny person living in that small speck of dust which happens to be a community called Who-ville. Horton is asked to protect that small speck of dust and he happily complies. When the animals around knew about it, they mocked and harassed him because they can’t see or hear what Horton could hear.

That line, “A person’s a person no matter how small”, became memorable to me because after the play, a lot of my classmates kept repeating it to me (and my circle of friends actually). You see, I’m only 148cm tall. Most of my close friends are also around that height. It has been my height since I was 14 and I never grew.

I’ve been reading about studies of children’s literature in our country and I think this is also a relatable quote for it. Apparently, sadly, many of the children’s books in our country feature children who are just passive and who are belittled because of their age. I agree with professionals saying that the child-characters in children’s literature should be given proper respect. Children can do wonders, too! We can learn a lot from them, too! Even as children, they are important members of the society.

I know that we can also discuss this with a certain debatable, sensitive topic in mind, but I don’t want to go into that. So, I’ll just end this with an amusing quote.

Well, not really. I hope you enjoy yours!


Tagging (even if they aren’t really new) Oishi, Ka-chan, and AhogeGirl, if you don’t mind. 🙂

And I’m finally done with this! Yay! There are a lot of wonderful quotations from various media and it’s always fun to remember and to share them to others.

Thank you so much for reading!

      Glad to know that you’ve never been ridiculed! A lot of my acquaintances and friends just like making fun of my height that it doesn’t bother me anymore.

      Oh, shoot. Sorry to hear that! >_< I hope next time you'll have a well-cooked one. (Though at least you have your bacon. I rarely even eat one. ;A;)

    I’ve enjoyed reading these quotes so much! And I couldn’t agree more, children need to be respected for the contributions they can make to society, just because they can’t work or vote or whatever doesn’t mean their thoughts and opinions are any less valuable and enriching to all our lives!

    True.All of us have been children at some point and I’m sure we didn’t like our opinion being disregarded back then, so I don’t know why we do the same thing to them.
    Also, thank you.
