What a beautiful day in the neighborhood...


Quotes from Mr. Rogers:

"I feel the greatest gift we can give to anybody is the gift of our honest self."

"Of course, I get angry. Of course, I get sad. I have a full range of emotions. I also have a whole smorgasbord of ways of dealing with my feelings. That is what we should give children. Give them ... ways to express their rage without hurting themselves or somebody else. That's what the world needs."

"You know, you don't have to look like everybody else to be acceptable and to feel acceptable."

"I have a very modulated way of dealing with my anger. I have always tried to understand the other person and invariably I've discovered that somebody who rubs you the wrong way has been rubbed the wrong way many times."

Won't you be my neighbor?

  2. Yeah, I think he beat his wife. No, that was Lawrence Welk.

    (Kidding!)
