Oprah Winfrey

Quotes

My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life,
but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for
the next moment.

If you want your life to be more rewarding,
you have to change the way you think.

Be more splendid, more extraordinary.
Use every moment to fill yourself up.

Every day you decide how you're going to use it
by knowing what you want
and what it takes to reach that goal,
and by maintaining focus.

The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance -
and then even the small steps and little victories along your path
will take on greater meaning.

Precised notes

  • Born: 29 Jan 1954
  • Icon: Talk show host, actress, writer, journalist, woman of honour and generosity. She played Sophia in 'The Color Purple' (1985).
  • Why I like her: She doesn't winge, she gets off her butt and does something about it. She is endlessly criticised. So, if you land in a conversation with one of Oprah's dissenters, just turn to them and say, "OK, what have YOU done for the world lately?"
