The Lorax Language and Communication Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Line)

Quote #4

I rushed cross the room, and in no time at all,
built a radio-phone. I put in a quick call.
I called all my brothers and uncles and aunts
and I said, "Listen here! Here's a wonderful chance ..." (123-26)

We wish we could quote an illustration because this one is just plain cool. Check out the Once-ler's desk! And his tools! Pure wackiness.

Quote #5

Whatever that meant, well, I just couldn't guess."
"But now," says the Once-ler,
"Now that you're here,
the word of the Lorax seems perfectly clear." (235-36, 45-47)

Wow. What an incredible moment in communication history. Maybe this is the first time the Once-ler has ever told his secrets, or maybe there's just something special about the way the boy listens. Either way, communication saves the day.
