Wisdom

“The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.” — Maya Angelou “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” — Maya Angelou “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.
