If you have ever wished to sit at the knee of people like Diane Sawyer, Dr. Maya Angelou, Sidney Poitier and others to learn what makes them tick, why they are the way they are, or what you can learn from them to enrich your own life, Oprah Winfrey is now presenting Master Classes on her new OWN television network with inspiring individuals like Diane Sawyer, Jay-Z, Dr. Maya Angelou, Simon Cowell, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Lorne Michaels and Sidney Poitier.
Consider a few quotes below from Diane Sawyer's recent Master Class. I strongly recommend you set your television to record the episodes so that you don't miss one. They are broadcast Sunday nights at 10/9 central.
Ideas Make Things Happen
"Whenever you are blue or lonely or stricken by some humiliating thing you did, the cure and the hope is in caring about other people." — Diane Sawyer
Lessons from My Father
"My dad, I still think, had the most beautiful, simple checklist for what you should do in life:
- Do something you really love that you would do it anyway.
- Do it in the most adventurous place you can do it.
- And make sure that it helps other people.
- And if you feel there's a genuine need for it, and that through that need you can help other people, you're home." — Diane Sawyer
"I read once, which I loved so much, that this great physicist who won a Nobel Prize said that every day when he got home, his dad asked him not what he learned in school but his dad said, 'Did you ask any great questions today?' And I always thought, what a beautiful way to educate kids that we're excited by their questions, not by our answers and whether they can repeat our answers." — Diane Sawyer
