“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” -Dr. Seuss
I chose this because as a young reader, I enjoyed reading Dr. Seuss books. Although, I may not have really understood the quote at the time it did have a positive effect on me. I looked at my circle of people who surrounded me and I thought about who really mattered to me. Now, taking this class, I was able to understand why it had such an effect on me. This quote is a good example of an antimetabole, where items in the sentence are repeated in reverse order. This scheme offers the readers and writers to capture a meaning in a memorable form.
