There’s a lot going on in the world this Tuesday. Some of it’s bad and a lot of it is mundane. However, one thing that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face is a trending hashtag — #ThingsILearnedFromMrRogers
During 31 seasons of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” Fred Rogers taught countless lessons to generations of children.
The lesson behind it all though, was quite simple — be kind.A neighbor to all, Fred Rogers taught us to open the door to those who we might see as different. He taught us to accept others and ourselves for who we are.
With that in mind, here are a few quotes from Mister Rogers. May they inspire thoughtfulness, care, and, above all else, kindness.
“I hope you’re proud of yourself for the times you’ve said ‘yes,’ when all it meant was extra work for you and was seemingly helpful only to somebody else.”
“The World According to Mister Rogers”
“There’s no person in the whole world like you, and I like you just the way you are.”
“There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.”
