Fred Rogers passed away in 2003 at age 74, but his words continue to inspire.

11 Unexpectedly Uplifting Quotes From Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock, director of cinema classics such as The 39 Steps (1935), Psycho (1950) and North by Northwest (1959), was a master filmmaker who had a knack for flooding the human heart with terror

10 Badass Quotes From Sally Ride

Sally Ride never intended to be a hero. In fact, she was a shy girl who never raised her hand in class, loved to play tennis and read Scientific American religiously.

"And I began to understand the importance of that to people," she told Harvard Business Review shortly before her death in 2012. Read more...
