Words of Wisdom From Maya Angelou!

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."


  1. Some really good quotes there. I can particularly relate to the one about losing your parents.

    My father and I had a bumpy relationship for as far back as I can remember; I was always a bit of a mommy's boy.

    My dad passed away last December, and wow. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't really and truly miss him, all the bad relationship stuff be damned. I'd love to be able to have him around for just an hour or two more.

  2. Josh: I am sorry for your loss. When I read these it made me think. We need to live each day like it is our last. Thanks for stopping by here.
