From "The Mister Rogers No One Saw", a comment by Fred Rogers when author Jeanne Marie Laskas thanks him for all he has taught her — and, with archetypal insight, Mister Rogers reflects the light back onto her:

It's so very hard, receiving.

When you give something,
    you're in much greater control.
But when you receive something,
        you're so vulnerable.

I think the greatest gift
        you can ever give
    is an honest receiving
        of what a person has to offer.
