Quotes by Maya Angelou

"Courage allows the successful person to fail and to learn powerful lessons from the failure, so that in the end, it was not a failure at all."

"We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends, and living our lives."

"I can be changed by what happens to me. I refuse to be reduced by it."

"I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself."

"It is this belief in a power larger than myself and other than myself which allows me to venture into the unknown and even the unknowable. "

"Love is that condition in the human spirit so profound that it allows me to survive, and better than that, to thrive with passion, compassion, and style."

"If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded."

"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."

"Love life, engage in it, give it all you've got. love it with a passion, because life truly does give back, many times over, what you put into it."

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."

"You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you."

Bee Gees-To Love Somebody

Theres a light
A certain kind of light
That never shone on me
I want my life to be lived with you
Lived with you
Theres a way everybody say
To do each and every little thing
But what does it bring
If I aint got you, aint got ?
You dont know what its like, baby
You dont know what its like

To love somebody
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

In my brain
I see your face again
I know my frame of mind
You aint got to be so blind
And Im blind, so very blind
Im a man, cant you see
What I am
I live and breathe for you
But what good does it do
If I aint got you, aint got ?

LOVE is wonderful!!!


I now realize love makes you love more, makes you cry, makes you unselfish, makes you light and your soul fly, makes you laugh more, eat and cook more, drink more hot chocolate, think more, be more creative and, definitely, make you drink tequila and dance in the wee hours of the morning :-)
