I was inspired today by an email I received from a friend about an interview Oprah had done with Maya Angelou on her 70th birthday. In there, she imparted some words of wisdom. It is my humble attempt to share them here with you.

Quotes by Maya Angelou

“I have learned 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 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 throw some things back…”

“I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.”

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

“I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.”

“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.”
