For Women by Maya Angelou

For Women

If you want to read a blog that is not Gallaudet Protest related, or just want to take break from reading the protest news...This blog is for every woman who deserves her right in her places.

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah 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 every day...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."

"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."
