Last 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 saidthere were many, occurring every day...like her breasts. They seem to be inarace to see which will reach her waist, first. The audience laughed so hardthey 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 howbad 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/shehandles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmastree 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 alife'.""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 onboth hands; you need to be able to throw some things back."
"I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, Iusually 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. Peoplelove 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 forgetwhat you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
