Mr. Rogers and Mr. Spock-- one capable of great emotion, one not, both ever so wise. See if you can tell said bits of wisdom apart.

One was a loving saint, the other a logical Vulcan, but Mr. Rogers and Mr. Spock have more in common than one might think. Both value friendship, common sense, and their human mothers, even if Mr. Spock honored his with vengeance, not by wearing her handmade cardigans on every show. Most importantly: both men are, in their own ways, role models to children everywhere, especially those who feel left out and need a little warm guidance or icy cold wisdom. The comparison is fascinating.

1. Without followers, evil cannot spread.
2. It can sometimes be easier to forgive our enemies than our friends.
3. The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self.
4. Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
5. Where there is no emotion, there is no motive for violence.
6. There is no normal life that is free of pain.
7. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one.
8. Violence in reality is quite different from theory.
9. Peace means far more than the opposite of war.
10. One can begin to reshape the landscape with a single flower...
11. Whatever is mentionable is manageable.
12. After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting.
13. It's not the honors and the prizes and the fancy outsides of life which ultimately nourish our souls.
14. Who we are in the present includes who we were in the past.
15. I have been, and always shall be, your friend.
16. The world needs a sense of worth, and it will achieve it only by its people feeling that they are worthwhile.
17. What you want is irrelevant, what you have chosen is at hand.
18. It's really easy to fall into the trap of believing that what we do is more important than what we are.
19. The only thing evil can’t stand is forgiveness.
20. It has always been easier to destroy than to create.
