Fred Rogers was truly an amazing man. He had a wonderful way with words and his ability to connect with children all over the world will never be forgotten. These Mr Rogers Quotes will teach you something and hopefully inspire you from the core of yourself. I admire what Mr. Fred Rogers was trying to teach our children and even us adults.
Not only did he speak to them in a way that they loved and understood but he also treated them with respect and kindness every moment of every day. There are so many stories about Mr. Rogers that will truly warm your heart…from picking up the phone and calling children viewers to just check on them or making surprise visits to the hospital to see some of his biggest fans.
To say that he had a pure heart of gold is truly an understatement. During this time, we could always use a few words and encouragement from Mr. Rogers to remind us of the goodness in the world.
These Mr Rogers quotes are meant to spread hope, kindness, and love.
I recently watched A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood, which is a story about a journalist who has to write a write up about the fabulous Mr Rogers. The journalist thinks there is no way his reputation can live up to this man and sets on a mission to write his story. The journalist will be surprised by what he finds when he spends time with Mr. Rogers. He finds healing.
In this movie, Mr. Rogers spoke to my soul. One thing that really stood out to me is he said that when he is speaking to someone… the most important person to him in the world at that very moment is the person he is speaking to. Try to take that in. That means he drops everything, he doesn’t multi-task or pretends to be listening… he really cares and centers his universe around them. That was just so powerful to me, especially in today’s time.
There is also a Mr Rogers book with the same title. Check out these other Fred Rogers book ideas below:
