When we love a person,
we accept him or her exactly as is:
the lovely with the unlovely,
the strong with the fearful,
the true mixed in with the facade.
And of course, the only way we can do it
is by accepting ourselves that way.
~ Mr. Rogers ~
Such a perfect quote. Thanks.

Oh yes! Thank you!!!🙂
You are welcome!
Nice quote! Nobody’s perfect!
More good wisdom from Mr Rogers, Jennie. 🙂

He always had important things to say, and he said it so well. Best to you, Pete.
Great words, Jennie.
I just love the wisdom of Mr. Rogers.
What great thoughts to reflect upon every day! Thanks for sharing, Jennie.
You’re welcome, Susan!
yes very true and I think the route of the problem is we don’t accept ourselves inspite of all the damage. We can always cntrol this part.
Well said, Mireya.
Words of wisdom Jennie many thanks for sharing them. May we all learn acceptance
That’s beautiful Jennie, and I loved Mr. Roberts. He always spoke so soothingly and genuinely. He taught us a lot of really good values.
He was one of the best, Anne!
Well put, Fred Rogers. Don’t you think the quality of acceptance is one of the most beautiful qualities in children, Jennie? One of my beliefs is that adults could learn a lot by watching kids. We are supposed to get smarter with age. Then how come there are so many closed-minded adults who tell others the “right” way to live?
Spot on, Pete. Working with young children every day reinforces the importance and value of acceptance. I think those close minded adults must have never had a dog growing up, or a grandparent. The heart has to be developed before we can get smart, don’t you think? I just love Mr. Rogers.
This is such a lovely quote, Jennie. Thank you.
Glad you liked it, Norah.
Absolutely lovely, Jennie. I great up with Mr. Rogers and can’t wait to see the movie. ❤
The movie is terrific! I do love all of his words of wisdom.
He is,the best. There is a documentary about him I have,yet to see that I think we would both enjoy.
