In April. Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah ask her what she thought of growing older. She said that it was "exciting..." Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occuring every day...like her breasts. They seems to be in a race to see which one of them will reach her waist, first.
The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple & 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 from the way he/she handles these three things : a rainy day, a lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights"
" I've learned that regardless of you relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they are gone from your life"
" I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same 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 to 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."
