Oprah Winfrey

b 29 January 1954

African American television host, actress, producer, and philanthropist.

 

What I know is, is that if you do work that you love, and the work fulfills you, the rest will come.

 

Excellence is the best deterrent to racism and sexism.

 

When you have finished growing in one place or time, you know. Your soul tells you when it’s time to move on.

 

Because the true test of courage is to be afraid and go ahead and do it anyway. To be scared, to have your knees knocking, but to walk on in there anyway.

 

Don’t complain about what you don’t have.  Use what you’ve got. To do less than your best is a sin.  Every single one of us has the power for greatness, because greatness is determined by service – to yourself and to others.
