My Top 10 Oprah Quotes

I was recently watching OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) on a Saturday night and wondered what is it that made Oprah Winfrey so successful? Was it her perseverance through difficult times, was it her attitude to never let anyone control her, or was it her desire to be loved? Whatever it is, it has propelled her through a career that landed her on Forbes’ list as one of only nine African-American billionaires (http://www.forbes.com/profile/oprah-winfrey/). Oprah has influenced many in her lifetime and I have listed below a list of my top 10 favorite Oprah Winfrey quotes that I use as motivation daily as a young woman growing up in a society which is dominated by successful men.
