It Is The Response To Error That Counts - Nikki Giovanni Quotes

~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

~Mistakes are a fact of life. It is the response to the error that counts~ Nikki Giovanni

~Some say we are responsible for those we love. Others know we are responsible for those who love us~ Nikki Giovanni

~If now isn't a good time for the truth I don't see when we'll get to it~ Nikki Giovanni

~There is always something to do. There are hungry people to feed, naked people to clothe, sick people to comfort and make well. And while I don't expect you to save the world I do think it's not asking too much for you to love those with whom you sleep, share the happiness of those whom you call friend, engage those among you who are visionary and remove from your live those who offer you depression, despair and disrespect~ Nikki Giovanni
