Quote Rogerka Replybullet Topic: Maya Angelou: What I've learnt
    Posted: 11 Feb 2010 at 8:36am
In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday.. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.
And, there on television, she said it was 'exciting...'
 
Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day.....like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first.
 
The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!
 
Maya Angelou said this:
'I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.'
 
'I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.'
 
'I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.'

'I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life.'

'I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.'

'I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back...'

'I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.'

'I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.'

'I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back...'

'I've learned that I still have a lot to learn..'

'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.'
Peace out

The lady is still looking good.
I asked for all things so that I might enjoy life; I was given life so that I might enjoy all things

One of my favorite authors ... thanks for sharing Roggy ...  my favorite quote of hers is ... "when someone show you who they are, believe it ... a true griot ... so much wisdom.
"the time is always ripe to do right", Nelson Mandela.
