I love quotes by Oprah, here are some of my favorites.
Hugs Sandie




Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
Oprah Winfrey

Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.
Oprah Winfrey

Books were my pass to personal freedom. I learned to read at age three, and soon discovered there was a whole world to conquer that went beyond our farm in Mississippi.
Oprah Winfrey

Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.
Oprah Winfrey

Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together.
Oprah Winfrey

Excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism.
Oprah Winfrey

For everyone of us that succeeds, it's because there's somebody there to show you the way out. The light doesn't always necessarily have to be in your family; for me it was teachers and school.
Oprah Winfrey

I always knew I was destined for greatness.
Oprah Winfrey

I am a woman in process. I'm just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull.
Oprah Winfrey

I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.
Oprah Winfrey

I don't believe in failure. It is not failure if you enjoyed the process.
Oprah Winfrey

I don't think of myself as a poor deprived ghetto girl who made good. I think of myself as somebody who from an early age knew I was responsible for myself, and I had to make good.
Oprah Winfrey

I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes.
Oprah Winfrey

I was raised to believe that excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism. And that's how I operate my life.
Oprah Winfrey

I'm black, I don't feel burdened by it and I don't think it's a huge responsibility. It's part of who I am. It does not define me.
Oprah Winfrey

If you come to fame not understanding who you are, it will define who you are.
Oprah Winfrey

It isn't until you come to a spiritual understanding of who you are - not necessarily a religious feeling, but deep down, the spirit within - that you can begin to take control.
Oprah Winfrey

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
Oprah Winfrey

Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.
Oprah Winfrey

My first day in Chicago, September 4, 1983. I set foot in this city, and just walking down the street, it was like roots, like the motherland. I knew I belonged here.
Oprah Winfrey

My idea of heaven is a great big baked potato and someone to share it with.
Oprah Winfrey

My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you I the best place for the next moment.
Oprah Winfrey

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
Oprah Winfrey

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.
Oprah Winfrey

Turn your wounds into wisdom.
Oprah Winfrey

Unless you choose to do great things with it, it makes no difference how much you are rewarded, or how much power you have.
Oprah Winfrey

We can't become what we need to be by remaining what we are.
Oprah Winfrey

When I look into the future, it's so bright it burns my eyes.
Oprah Winfrey

Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.
Oprah Winfrey

You are what you are by what you believe!
Oprah Winfrey

I just came across this one, and I thought it was cute.

Don't marry a man to reform him---that's what reform schools are for.

I don't know where these orginated but here goes:

I had deceptive speed. I was slower than I thought.

Why is it that lemonade cans say "Contains artificial lemon juice" and a can of Pledge advertises "Contains real lemon juice"?

The trouble with officials is that they don't care who wins.

The bully in our high school always used to pick on me. But I got even. I married him!

He got his fast talking skills from his parents. His father was an auctioneer and his mother was a woman.

We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.

Why is it that the closer you get to the ocean, the more seafood costs?

He's so skinny that he has only one stripe in his pajamas.

One of the quotes that I really like is...

I hope that my achievements in life shall be these: that I will have fought for what was right and fair, risked for that which mattered, given help to those who were in need, and that I will have left the earth a better place for what I've done and who I've been. C. Hoppe
