In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there ontelevision, 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 honestwoman, with so much wisdom in her words!
Maya Angelou said this: "I've learned that no matter what happens, orhow bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be bettertomorrow."
"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, andtangled Christmas tree lights."
"I've learned that regardless of yourrelationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life."
"I've learned that making a "living" is not the samething as "making a life."
"I've learned that life sometimes gives youa 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 somethings back."
"I've learned that whenever I decide something with anopen 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 learnedthat 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 peoplewill forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but peoplewill never forget how you made them feel."
