The Real World

Jimmy at 45: Give up on your dreams, Jimmy. Never mind that! You'll probably be average, slow moving and fat.

Jimmy at 5: Just follow your dreams! Reach for the stars! Oh the places you'll go, both near and so far.

My mother actually gave this book to me before I moved from collect dust in a box. I liked Dr. Seuss enough as a kid but  the dose of reality nicely catapulted this simple fable into 2011. The demotivational spin  is great and so true, the real world sucks for many, and is perfect for few:
