Today’s “Words to Live By” come from my red cardigan-wearing idol: Mister Rogers.
“Each generation, in its turn, is a link between all that has gone before and all that comes after. That is true genetically, and it is equally true in the transmission of identity. Our parents gave us what they were able to give, and we took what we could of it and made id part of ourselves. If we knew our grandparents, and even great-grandparents, we will have taken from them what they could offer us, too. All that helped to make us who we are. We, in our turn, will offer what we can of ourselves to our children and their offspring.”
If you found this inspiring, you should read his book: The World According to Mr. Rogers.
