Fred Rogers Quotes

Imagining something may be the first step in making it happen, but it takes the real-time and real efforts of real people to learn things, make things and turn thoughts into deeds or visions into inventions.

There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.

We get so wrapped up in numbers in our society. The most important thing is that we are able to be one-to-one, you and I with each other at the moment. If we can be present to the moment with the person that we happen to be with, that’s what’s important.
