Mister Rogers' birthday is coming up on March 20th and I thought I'd do something special to celebrate his memory. I have so much I could say about him but instead, I'll be sharing my favorite quotes, lyrics to my favorite song of his as well as parting words he used to say.
These are lyrics to "It's You I Like" by Fred Rogers:
"It's you I like, It's not the things you wear, It's not the way you do your hair, But it's you I like. I hope that you'll remember, Even when you're feeling blue, That it's you I like, It's you yourself, It's you. It's you I like. "
Mister Rogers would often end his episodes with these words:
"You make each day such a special day, you know how, by just your being yourself. There's no one in this whole world like you, and people can like you, just the way you are"
