May Angelou Interviewed By Oprah

Great interview.


In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.

She said it was ‘exciting…’
Regarding body changes,she said there were many, occurring every day… 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.’
