And the Count says Christmas isn’t special anymore because it’s every day. Maybe Santa’s right. Every day can’t be Christmas. That wouldn’t be such a treat. You can get tired of chocolate candy when that’s all you eat. Every day can’t be your birthday. That wouldn’t be such fun. Too many birthdays aren’t as nice as one.”

32. “Elmo never grows. Once something is shown to him by the folks, he starts laughing. He simply does not have any desire of learning any lesson.

33. “Elmo is out and it is nothing much personal. Everybody has an affinity for Elmo. However, there are just two ways this entire thing can turn out to be. On one hand, the persistent positivity of Elmo starts wearing on you in and around the third week of being stranded on an island. You deal with it and suck it up though, since it is none but Elmo. It is going to be his thing only. However, with the advent of time you begin to crack. That’s not his fault, but yours. And one fine day, while Elmo returns from the search for food with a wide smile on his face along with a decomposed coconut, you eventually toss his compact-sized body right into the waters.”

Did These Elmo Quotes Inspire You to Seek Genuine Friendship at All Times?

Known as a furry red monster with a falsetto voice, Elmo is often bullied because of his illeism—the tendency to speak in the third person. This was a significant hindrance in making new friends and often resulted in self-hate.

This belief was further amplified when I joined Quote Ambition. Through the quotes I’ve read, collected, organized, and written about, I found that humans are resilient, creative, and compassionate.
