A quote about God from Oprah Winfrey

"So I grew up believing in the bible that said 'I can do all things, through Christ, who strengthens me' (Philippians 4:13). That is what I was taught, you know, when I first learned to read. So I believe that. And what I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things, because you have been endowed by a power from on high, given to you by the grace of God. You believe that, you walk in to the world, understanding that whatever problems you may encounter, you still have God to lean on." - Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey on life and creation...

"How I think one masters one's life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator. Not understanding that, puts you at your own, pitiful, meager, little will, and everything is left up to you. And you can't do it. You can not survive in this world by yourself just believing in yourself. Your not big enough to do it. I'm not big enough to do it. Nobody is big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presents here as a human being on earth came from something greater then you and not just your parents who wanted to have a child. The fact that egg was hit by that particular little sperm, in that particular moment and you were created. WOW! How amazing is that? Of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you to be here now! What a celebration that is!

So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don't have answers to. You have to know this, the fact that I am here matters. The fact that your there matters. This is no accident, none of us are!" - Oprah Winfrey
