did you ever grow anything in the garden of your mind?
the whistle kills me..
"One of the greatest gifts you can give anybody is the gift of your honest self."
“Love isn't a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.”
“If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
“Often when you think you're at the end of something, you're at the beginning of something else.”
“Feeling good about ourselves is essential in our being able to love others.”
- a few fave Fred Rogers quotes
Fred Mcfeely Rogers, one of my favorite humanitarians.We had all of five channels growing up and beside old movies I was watching Mister Rogers Neighborhood. It first aired in 1968 and continued into the new millennium. I loved his little daily adventures, how cool is it to learn a bit about everything? He wanted to teach children to love themselves and others . He was quirky, kind, curious, unique..
Also,his outfits were pretty fresh. PBS is still one of my favorite channels..antiques roadshows, masterpiece classics! haha He saved public television.
"looks like you just earned the 20 million"
( Rogers received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, some forty honorary degrees, and a Peabody Award. He was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame, was recognized by two Congressional resolutions, and was ranked No. 35 among TV Guide's Fifty Greatest TV Stars of All Time. Several buildings and artworks in Pennsylvania are dedicated to his memory, and the Smithsonian Institution displays one of his trademark sweaters as a "Treasure of American History".
Rogers was red-green color blind, swam every morning, was a vegetarian, and neither smoked nor drank.[
Rogers began wearing his famous sneakers when he found them to be quieter than his work shoes as he moved about behind the set. He was also the voices of King Friday XIII and Queen Sara Saturday (named after his wife), rulers of the neighborhood, as well as X the Owl, Henrietta Pussycat, Daniel Striped Tiger, Lady Elaine Fairchild, and Larry Horse.
The asteroid 26858 Misterrogers is named after Rogers.)
