What I learned from Mr. Rogers.
On February 19, 1968, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood debuted on Public Television. My sister was four and I was ten. Mr. Rogers wore zip up sweaters and sneakers and talked about feelings and make-believe. He was nerdy and his songs were corny, but we liked him just the way he was.

This week marks 50 years since Fred Rogers made his way into our homes and our hearts. The lessons he taught me then are just as relevant today. As a matter of fact, Ron and I have applied many of his philosophies to our Eagle business!

So, thanks, Mr. Rogers, for sharing your kindness, your neighborhood and yourself with us!!
On making connections...

"If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person."

On being true and honest....

"The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self."  

"Who you are inside is what helps you make and do everything in life."

"Kids can spot a phony a mile away."

On kindness...

"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."

On loving what you do...

“The thing I remember best about successful people I've met all through the years is their obvious delight in what they're doing and it seems to have very little to do with worldly success. They just love what they're doing, and they love it in front of others.”
