“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.” ― Maya Angelou I’ve heard or seen this Maya Angelou quote quite a few times in the past month.  And it seems it deserves some attention.  I can hear Esther Hick’s […]
