Feeling Under the Weather!

I caught some bug and I have been sick since last Sunday.....Ugh!  I've been doing that honey, lemon and brandy remedy for all of what ails you!

TV is now becoming boring so I searched my bookshelves for something of interest to read.  I don't recall purchasing this book of quotes or who might have given it to me to read.  I'm guessing I might have acquired it through a book swap.  Well, the author is Mayo Angelou and I do recall that Oprah once hailed her as one of the greatest voices of contemporary literature and an amazing Renaissance woman.

There were two quotes in the book that I stored in my memory bank.

"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." 

When you leave people feeling uplifted, you will have made all the difference in the world don't you agree?

The other quote also fascinated me..."There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."

This author left me with the impression that she has a great mind!
