Can I sell a shirt with a very short Dr. Seuss quote?

Customer Question

Can I sell a shirt with a very short Dr. Seuss quote? Specifically, "A person's a person no matter how small"
Would it be better to have a hyphen with Dr Seuss's name or to not even attribute?

Even if you attribute it to Dr. Sehss you could still be liable for copyright infringement. You need to contact the publisher of the books to get a license to use the quote for your intended commercial purpose.
