7 Quotes from Mr. Rodgers to Lift Your Spirit June 9, 2019

“Love is at the root of everything,” Mr. Rogers says at the beginning of the documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor, “all learning, all relationships— love, or the lack of it. And what we see and hear on the screen is part of who we become.”

At the center of the Universe is a loving heart that continues to beat and that wants the best for every person. Anything that we can do to help foster the intellect and spirit and emotional growth of our fellow human beings, that is our job. Those of us who have this particular vision must continue against all odds. Life is for service.

“The more I think about it, the more I wonder if God and neighbor are somehow One. “Loving God, Loving neighbor”—the same thing? For me, coming to recognize that God loves every neighbor is the ultimate appreciation.” ― Fred Rogers
