Oprah was in 32 movies/shows
The Oprah Winfrey Show
started and became a hit in September of 1986
Oprah Gail Winfrey
As a child, she flew back and forth between her parents. Her dad lived in Nashville, TN, and her mom lived in Milwaukee, WI. Later on, Oprah graduated from Tennessee State University, and was later on presented with an honorary doctorate's degree from President Obama. The Oprah Winfrey Show becomes a big hit in September of 1986. I think we should listen to Oprah’s quotes because they are so inspiring to me and a lot of other people. We should also listen because she is a great philosopher, and she has changed a lot of lives.
Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.
Turn your wounds into wisdom.
Surround yourself only with people who are going to take you higher.
I trust that everything happens for a reason, even when we’re not wise enough to see it.
We can't become what we need to be if we remain what we are.
Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.
You can have it all. Just not all at once.
If you don’t know what your passion is, realize that one reason for your existence on earth is to find it
The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.
It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
Being like everybody is the same as being nobody.
Originality is probably one of the most important things in life. Your originality shows in your school projects, how you dress, how you think, the kinds of ideas you have, how you act, even how you speak and the goals you have set for yourself. There are so many occasions where originality comes in handy. The correct definition of originality is, “The act of thinking independently and uniquely”. I think that is an extremely accurate definition. I like to stand out in my own way. I have never wanted to be a part of the crowd, I have liked to be abnormal and stand on my own. This is why I think originality is important.
It takes nothing to join the crowd. It takes everything to stand alone.
-Hans F. Hansen
Originality is the art of hiding your source.
Creativity is the defeat of habit by originality.
Originality consists in trying to be like everybody else - and failing.
Labeled fools to the world are geniuses to the cosmos.

When I look into the future, it's so bright it burns my eyes.
You don't have to be a sore thumb to stick out.
I like this quote because originality is the most important quality a person can have.
Cinema reflects culture and there is no harm in adapting technology, but not at the cost of losing your originality.
Originality is simply just a pair of fresh eyes.
All good things which exist are the fruits of originality.
-John Stuart Mill
Because of this, originality consists in returning to the origin.
