Quote of the Week

Animals make you feel good, too.
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.
- Maya Angelou 

This is a powerful statement.  Whether good or bad, people will remember the emotions you inspired in them.   Let's hope that people come away from us feeling uplifted and good about themselves.


  1. I agree, Linda, that is a powerful statement and so very true.

  2. This is one of my favorites of your Quote of the Week. It's such a perfect time for this one.

    This is a very hectic time of year and being aware of how we make people feel is so important right now.

    A smile for a tired check out clerk can go a long ways at this time of the year.

    Thanks for sharing this:~)

  3. I have to agree, this may be my favourite quote yet. Also, I always leave here feeling uplifted. At the risk of sounding corny, you have a very positive vibe/aura about you.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, Linda. :-)

  4. Oh wow. I've never thought of that. Very true, indeed.

  5. Oh wow. That is a true one. Might be kind of selfish if you think about it, depending on the person, but I'm sure that's not how Maya meant it :)

  6. Talon- It is certainly something to keep in mind in our interactions with one another.

    Sara- It's good to see you. What's said and done fades away, but feelings remain.

    Nicky- Thank you for your kind comment. I wish I could say that I was always as positive as my writing indicates. But I do learn by repetition.

    Meleah- I don't think I had thought about it that way either. I think these quotes are to help me as much as everyone else.

    Sweet Potatoes- Not sure I get the selfish part. Our words and deeds can affect others in either a positive or negative way which they will remember.

  7. Hi Linda .. what an excellent quote for this time of year .. and one that we should keep in mind.

    You're right we do suddenly realise things .. when we look at quotes, or stories in another way ... certainly I'm doing that more often now ..

    Hurt does remain .. as do love and joy ..

    Have a very peaceful and happy Christmas and New Year .. cheers Hilary

  8. So true. A good reminder for all of us.
