  • Quotes

    • Mr. Rogers: There are so many ways to grow. There isn't a whole lot we can do about our outside kind of growing. Some of us grow tall, and some of us grow short. Some of us have one color skin, and some of us have another. That's all outside stuff. But we all have insides, too, and our insides have a different way of growing. Our thoughts and our feelings grow, and there's a lot we can do about them. We can try to understand them, and love them, and help them to grow well, and turn out to be glad we're the way we are, and glad that our friends are the way they are. And we can always try to remember that we're much more than one thing. We're much more than our arms, or our legs, or our eyes, or our skin, or our hair. We're even more than our thoughts. We are.
