What I Know for Sure Reviews
I love Oprah. That's coming from a person who isn't dazzled by celebrities. I grew up watching her talk show, and I'm not ashamed of admitting that I learned a lot from her. I love her positive outlook on life, her strength and her determination.It's summed up really nicely in this book;
My highest achievement: never shutting down my heart. Even in my darkest moments—through sexual abuse, a pregnancy at 14, lies and betrayals—I remained faithful, hopeful, and willing to see the best in people, r...more
This small book is a compendium of truths that Oprah has learned from her own experiences. There were many sections I want to save and reread but I think the last entry sums up everything she wrote about earlier. Happiness is never something you get from other people. You lead life; it doesn't lead you. Be loving to yourself and others and see that love reciprocated. Today I try to do well and be well with everyone I encounter. Everything will be returned to me and the same is true for you.
في أحد المقابلات التلفزيونية سألها المذيع: أخبريني ما الشيء الذي تعرفينه على وجه اليقين؟
ليست المرة الأولى التي تخضع فيها للكثير من الأسئلة، ولم يحدث أن وجدت نفسها عاجزة عن الرد تماماً، ولكن كانت هذه المره استثنائية وبسببها ولد هذا الكتاب.
تطرقت أوبرا في هذا الكتاب للأمور التي تعرفها على وجه اليقين من خلال مواقف عاشتها، وأحداث تعرضت لها في حياتها وكانت سبباً في أدراكها للأمور وجعلها ما هي عليه اليوم.
كتاب خفيف وممتع في نفس الوقت، ستتعرف فيه أكثر على هذه الشخصية الملهمة، نقاط ضعفها وكيف حولتها لمصدر ...more
In this book, Oprah does her thing. I mean, what do you imagine, when you picture a book written by Oprah? Well, this is exactly it.
With chapters called Joy, Resilience, Gratitude, Awe and stuff like that, it's a blend of self-help, memoir and inspirational/spiritual stories with short chapters and highly quotable phrases. She's in her element.
I'm pretty sure a book like this written by any other author would piss me off. But when Oprah does it, it feels good to read it. Oprah's writings feel ...more
Beautiful & inspiring.
"What I know for sure is that there is no strength without challenge, adversity, resistance, and often pain".
"Who could I have become if I had finally done the things I always wanted to do".
"The gift of deciding to face your mortality without turning away or flinching is the gift of recognizing that because you will die, you must live now".
I'm not an Oprah fan, yet I found this book to be thoroughly humanizing. A great work of literature? No, but it's not meant to be. It is a deep cleansing breathe.
Well, if you are an Oprah fan, you will love this! I would highly recommend buying this as an audiobook rather than the hardcover or paperback because there's something about Oprah's voice that makes everything still and makes the person listening truly pay attention and really get it. It's one thing to see Oprah's words on the page but hearing it from her mouth takes her words to the next level. It's difficult to explain but her voice means so much and it works so well and makes so much sense t ...more
