10 AWESOME LIFE LESSONS FROM MISTER ROGERS 🔑

  1. 1.
    "As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has- or ever will have- something inside that is unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression."
  2. 2.
    "Peace means far more than the opposite of war."
  3. 3.
    "We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It's easy to say "It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem." Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes."
  4. 4.
    "Often when you think you're at the end of something, you're at the beginning of something else."
  5. 5.
    "We need to help people to discover the true meaning of love. Love is generally confused with dependence. Those of us who have grown in true love know that we can love only in proportion to our capacity for independence."
  6. 6.
    "Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime’s work, but it’s worth the effort."
  7. 7.
    "It’s very important, no matter what you may do professionally, to keep alive some of the healthy interests of your youth. Children’s play is not just kids’ stuff. Children’s play is rather the stuff of most future inventions."
  8. 8.
    "Knowing that we can be loved exactly as we are gives us all the best opportunity for growing into the healthiest of people."
  9. 9.
    "Most of us, I believe, admire strength. Sometimes, though, I wonder if we confuse strength with other words—like 'aggression' and even 'violence'. Real strength is neither male nor female; but it is, quite simply, one of the finest characteristics that a human being can possess."
  10. 10.
    "...Each one of us is so much more than any one thing. A sick child is much more than his or her sickness. A person with a disability is much, much more than a handicap. A pediatrician is more than a medical doctor. You're MUCH more than your job description or your age or your income or your output."
