Mr. Rogers Remixed from PBS Digital Studios

Mr. Rogers said some great things I didn't appreciate at the time. For example, see the quotes below I collected from the video put together by PBS Digital Studios.
Did you ever grow anything in the garden of your mind? You can grow ideas in the garden of your mind. It's good to be curious about many things. You can think about things in make believe. All you have to do is think...and they'll grow.
Did you know Fred McFeely Rogers...
  • Earned a B.A. in Music Composition in 1951 and wrote most of the music played on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood?
  • Earned a divinity degree from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, was ordained a Presbyterian minister and charged to continue his work with Children's Television?
  • Wrote 36 books?
  • Received two Peabody Awards, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian award, and four Emmy Awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award (See the video below of his amazing acceptance speech. Yes. Amazing!). In addition to all this, one of his cardigan sweaters is on display at the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of American History.
