Well, that's all well and good, but you forget that there are many parents who would mind.

I would categorize parents as "Those who matter," wouldn't you?

Not if they mind. At that point, they're just another pile of **** that tries to influence your life.

So if I were to commit a murder, the police wouldn't matter because they would mind, but the cellmates I'd have in prison would matter because they wouldn't?

It's a little thing called contextual logic. One can easily apply the logic of one situation, to another, making it seem much less logically sane.

I'm not going to sit here and dissect a Dr. Seuss quote to its very core, but I will say that motivational quotes are always wrought with logical fallacies and/or have many exceptions to their rules.   
   
Walt Disney said, "If you can dream it, you can do it."   
Well, I dream that tomorrow I will grow a pair of wings and fly over Taipei playing a ukulele to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb," but that doesn't mean I can do it.

That's not correct either though, because when people say "if you can dream it, you can do it" it means goals you set for yourself in life you can do if you try hard enough. Obviously this only works for realistic goals.

When they say:
if they mind they don't matter
if they don't mind they matter

This means:
if they mind they don't matter (to you)
if they don't mind they matter (to you)

Which means that if they're going to put you down, then they aren't good enough to matter to you.
It doesn't mean do what you want and if people don't like it who cares what they think, because again, you have to be realistic.
Obviously when someone says "do what makes you happy and if people are bothered by it, **** 'em" they mean in a realistic law abiding sense.
Smart arses like you will always try to pick apart things like this saying "what if I like murdering people hur dur" but this is closed mindedness, also known as lack of imagination.
