When I first read this, I thought, that must not be Dr. Seuss, because it doesn’t rhyme. Then, I decided to see what book it came from, and I found the above linked article. Although the quote is attributed to Dr. Seuss, it was actually said by Bernard Mannes Baruch (19 August 1870 – 20 June 1965) when asked how he handled seating arrangements at dinner parties. It’s still a good thought, though. And good advice for making out seating charts.
