Maya Angelou Quotes

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 s uch 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.'
