Get Oprah's two cents on everything from rocky romance and overcoming fear to spiritual growth and setting goals. Compiling from numerous sources, author Janet Lowe (Warren Buffett Speaks
, Bill Gates Speaks
) pulls together an impressive collage of quotes and anecdotes from one of the most influential women of the 20th century. Whether you're looking for a nugget of wisdom on relationships ("You know the old cliché, 'a good man is hard to find'? Well, it's true. And the smarter you get, the harder they are to find") or a spiritual insight ("God blesses you better when you pray on your knees"), Oprah Winfrey Speaks
is chock-full of snappy snippets and sage advice. Although the book spans everything from Oprah's upbringing to her future predictions, most of the subjects are covered in a few pages or less, making it a better digest than diary.

From the Back Cover
The world listens when Oprah Winfrey speaks
Discover the mystique of Oprah in her own words.
Here is just a sample of what you'll find inside:
"People have told me that their lives have changed because of me. I take away from this the sense that I'm on the right track."
"I am a woman-in-progress. I'm just trying like everyone else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. All I know is I can't be anybody else. And it's taken me a long time to realize that."
"I am what I am because of my grandmother. My strength. My sense of reasoning. Everything. All that was set by the time I was six."
"Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity."
"I always feel if you do right, right will follow."
"Just tell the truth. It'll save you every time."
