Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers) (1928-2003) wrote,
“Competition. It’s a word that makes many of us very edgy, and it’s a situation that we have probably been living with since we were very small.
For some people competition is a thrill, a stimulation, a challenge. For others, it’s a source of sadness and anger and apprehension. For still others, it’s a mixture of all those things.
It’s not possible to go through life without competing. As one woman told me, “Competition is a part of our everyday life, whether we’re competing for a job, or on the soccer field, or for love.”
There are many kinds of competition, to be sure. But I think that love does have something to do with them all. In fact, I believe that if we’ve ever wanted someone’s love, then we’ve known what competition really means.”
“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” Jesus
