I’VE LEARNED By: Maya Angelou

This was written by Maya Angelou, I am just sharing it with you. I really love her writing. Enjoy!

I have learned lots of things and every day I look forward to learning more.

“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 something 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. Maya Angelou is one of my fave writers! She is so soft spoken and has the most awesome outlook on life. I love her words above! I was lucky to be able to hear her in person many years ago at the university near us. I nearly fell out of my seat with adoration! Great post!

    • Maya Angelou is one of my favorites as well. I would love to meet her and I would probably fall out of my seat. You are lucky. 🙂 I am currently reading “The heart of a woman” (it is one of the few I haven’t read yet). She makes me feel peace.
