Fred Rogers was not only the star of his own kid-friendly TV show (which was called Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood); he was also a song-writer, a puppeteer, and an ordained Presbyterian minister. But more importantly, he was a very nice man.

Mr. Rogers said, “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.” And he was right. It’s always nice to be nice, and it’s always the right time to be courteous.
