Oprah's meeting with Maya Angelou

In April, Oprah interviewed Maya Angelou on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on  television, she said it was "exciting." Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring everyday...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 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. (Very true!)

"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."
