People will never forget how you made them feel

Maya Angelou was an American author, poet, dancer, actress, and singer. She became a poet and writer after a series of occupations as a young adult, including fry cook, prostitute, nightclub dancer, and performer. She was also an actor, writer, director, and producer of plays, movies, and public television programs.

Of life she has 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.

I’ve learned that 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.

I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.

I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.”

I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.

I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.

I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. 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.”

The last sentence bears particular significance: “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.” 

It is a commentary on honouring all who cross our path in life.
