Thoughts from Maya Angelou

“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 tree lights.

I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’ve gone from your life.

I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catchers mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.

I’ve leaned that whenever I decide to do 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. She certainly did. You are the first person I have known, not to be a fan. Each to their own I guess. Thank you for commenting, it is certainly ok not to all agree and like the same things. X


  1. My pleasure Laina. I hope all is well with you and if not, then I am sending positive thoughts your way. XX


  2. Hi Barb. Thank you for stopping over at Senior Salon and participating. I have tweeted this post and as you left your blog link, I used this post for the Friday Roundup which will be published in about 1½ hours. I hope to see you again next week and then read another post you share with us.


    1. Me too, I miss her deep, soft tone and way with words. Thank you for following my blog. As you may have noticed I haven’t visited there for a while. I feel a change is needed and I’m not quite sure yet where it is taking me.
