The Grinch and Depression
- "They're just waking up! I know just what they'll do! Their mouths will hang open for a minute or two. Then the Whos down in Whoville will all cry BooHoo! That's a noise," grinned the Grinch "that I simply MUST hear!"
In the grinch, there is also a reference that gets to the idea that while everyone else in Whoville is happy, he is extremely sad.
- It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right. It could be perhaps that his shoes were too tight. But I think that the most likely reason of all, may have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
The grinch finally showed signs of deceitfulness as well as his failure to conform to social norms.
- "Why for fifty-three years I've put up with it now! I MUST stop this Christmas from coming! But HOW?"
