Living as I do in the Pittsburgh, PA area I run across things related to Fred Rogers and Mr. Rogers Neighborhood all the time. If you don’t know who he is, click here and you’ll see who I’m talking about. He was truly a wonderful human being and the quote I ran across recently I’m calling my quote of the year, because it so beautifully captures one of my core life principles.
“Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like “struggle.” To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now – and to go on caring even through times that may bring us pain.” – Fred Rogers
