mr. (fred) rogers

mr rogers quote for scary times

Incredible man, incredible heart.

Here he is on behalf of children, defending PBS to the senate 2007:

the people said: we’ve got to have more of this neighborhood expression of prayer..

there’s no person in the whole world like you.. i like you just the way you are

feelings are mentionable and manageable – if we make that clear – we will have done a great deal for mental health

song: what do you do with the mad that you feel when you feel so mad you could bite, …. i can stomp when i want to.. when i wish.. 

and – he earns his 20 million…

Here is a remix of his phrases into song:

His 1997 acceptance speech for lifetime achievement awards:

who helped bring you into being

mr rogers

let’s move (back) into a culture of trust… no?http://dianeravitch.net/2012/11/26/if-mr-rogers-were-secretary-of-education/

Because deep down we know that what matters in this life is more than winning for ourselves. What really matters is helping others win, too, even if it means slowing down and changing our course now and then.”

Someone recently argued that we need a new Billy Graham; I wish Graham’s urgent public Evangelicalism had died with him.

America needs a new Fred Rogers. His Christianity I can approve of. It wasn’t a spectacle; Mr. Rogers just genuinely cared for people. We didn’t deserve him. https://t.co/luZA0gKPFD (http://twitter.com/C_Stroop/status/967733829522919426?s=17)

Let’s all just brighten our days a bit and observe Fred Rogers’s joyous reaction to being surprised by an old friend when he was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in 1999. https://t.co/szWDdpCJTN https://t.co/JnM7P1NgBY

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is the work of childhood.

Man, Won’t You Be My Neighbor was so profoundly moving … Having trouble processing something so utterly devoid of cynicism or commercialism. Fred Rogers’ insight into the power of TV and mass media for mass goodness feels absurdly revolutionary: https://t.co/UNyzXRwDZt (http://twitter.com/craigmod/status/1035382175061798912?s=17)
