Shel Silverstein

American, Shel Silverstein, born 1930 began writing and drawing at a young age. A cartoonist, playwright, poet, performer, and recording artist, Silverstein was also a Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated songwriter. This quote comes from 'Five Lessons for Grown Ups' Lesson 2

The bulk of this poem is about limitation, but somehow the words in capitals are overpowered by the simple sentence at the end that “Anything can be.” and encourages the reader to see opportunity where others see obstacles.

Another book by Shel Silverstein is The Giving Tree
