“You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you need to make choices. And hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are.”
Maxwell King, The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers

“Mister Rogers speaks directly into the camera to the little children who are quietly, intently watching: “It helps to say that you’re sad. Often it even helps to cry . . . let people know how you feel.” This is Rogers’s signature message: feelings are all right, whatever is mentionable is manageable, however confusing and scary life may become. Even with death and loss and pain, it’s okay to feel all of it, and then go on.”
Maxwell King, The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers

“Our job in life,” he said at a graduation ceremony at Thiel College in Greenville, Pennsylvania, early in his career, in 1969, “is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is—that each of us has something that no one else has—or ever will have—something inside which is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness, and to provide ways of developing its expression.”
Maxwell King, The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers

Polls

This poll is for the 'first' quarterly Non-fiction selection in our BT group. We had an outstanding response in nominations, with even more members holding off for the next quarter. I can only hope to see a book discussion that is half as lively.

Should we have a tie, there will be a very short 3 day additional poll to select one winner this quarter. However, if this non-fiction selection stays this popular - there could be multiple winners in the future. Time and thread participation will tell...
