Quotations : Nikki Giovanni

“ I really don’t think life is about the I-could-have-beens.

Life is only about the I-tried-to-do.

I don’t mind the failure but I can’t imagine that I’d forgive myself if I didn’t try. “

Nikki Giovanni – Grammy nominated American poet, author and activist

Born 2 days before me on 7th June 1943 in Knoxville, Tennessee.  Her words resonate with me as I progress along the odyssey!

If my post-dated posts upload correctly, this post will be published on the morning of my birthday; 9th June.  Many Happy Returns of the Day to me!!  🙂
