16. When the great American poet, the late Maya Angelou, reflected on her life and learnings she said, "I've learned that...
- no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.
- 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.
- regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.
- making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life.'
- life sometimes gives you a second chance.
- you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back.
- whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
- even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.
- every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
- I still have a lot to learn.
- people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
