"People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People who really want help may attack you if you help them. Help them anyway. Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. Give the world your best anyway. You see, at the end of the day, it's about your character... it was never about them anyway." ~ MOTHER TERESA.
Live the life you love and love the life you live.
Maya Angelou & Alice Walker are two of my favorite writers. Alice Walker wrote "The Color Purple". The movie was wonderful, wasn't it? Whoopi & Oprah were SO good. "The Color Purple" movie was based on the book - but Menno Meyjes wrote the screenplay. An excellent book : "The Same River Twice: Honoring the Difficult" - Alice Walker tells about the making of the movie. If you haven't read "The Color Purple", please do. Especially now that you know what the characters look like! Such a good book.
I liked the Colour Purple i have read the book twice as my daughter had to do it for her A levels so it was in the house its a great book..I thought it had a happy ending but my daughter tells me it was very sad at the end where she had missed out on such a lot over the years..
