" and the changes... keep on changin'...
You know the 'good old days'
they say they're gone.
'cept some wise men...
and some new-born fools...
say that they know what's goin' on.
And then sometimes,
I know the difference
is just in how I think and see...
and the only changes goin' on are just,
goin' on in me."

occurring every day...like her breasts.

Maya Angelou said this:
"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today,
life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow."
"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way
he/she handles these three things:
a rainy day,
lost luggage, and
tangled Christmas tree lights."
"I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents,
you'll miss them when they're gone from your life."
"I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life'."
"I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance."
"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on
both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back."
"I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I
usually make the right decision."
"I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one."
"I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.
People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back."
"I've learned that I still have a lot to learn."
"I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel."
