Quote #1

I am Sam. (1, 2)

These little words have left a pretty big legacy. One thing we don't always remember, though, is that they are written on signs. That's right, signs to the world from Sam; signs that say, "Hey world, I exist!" Green Eggs and Ham celebrates this exuberant self-awareness, and our human (or creature) need to interact with others to affirm our own existences. Ah, philosophy.

Quote #2

Sam I am. (3)

When Sam doesn't get the kind of attention he wants from the big guy, he tries flipping the script a little, inverting the "normal" order of things to make a splash. This is also our cue that we are in Seussville, where the rules don't apply. In Seussville, going against the grain is not only acceptable, but desired.

Quote #3

I would not like them
anywhere. (19)

This is what we call glass half empty. Not anywhere? Really, Big Guy?
