QUOTE: Oprah Winfrey “Be Thankful”

“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

* Interesting Fact – Oprah Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother and later raised in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood.  After she experienced considerable hardship during her childhood, she was sent to live with the man she calls her father, a barber in Tennessee.  Winfrey landed a job in radio while still in high school and began co-anchoring the local evening news at the young age of 19.  Her emotional ad-lib delivery eventually got her transferred to the daytime-talk-show arena, and after boosting a third-rated local Chicago talk show to first place, she launched her own production company and became internationally syndicated.  The rest is history.
