Oprah Winfrey on Limos

Oprah Winfrey on Limos

“Everyone wants to ride with you in the limo but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”

– Oprah Winfrey

At a certain point, when one has everything they could ever ask for – a life of luxury, exorbitant riches, real estate, and professional success – the thing that they most value is loyalty.

Oprah Winfrey is one such person, who went from being the child of a single mother in rural poverty in Mississippi, encountered unspeakable events in childhood, and risen to being one of the richest people in the world, North America’s only black billionaire.

What lessons did she learn in her childhood full of tragedy, and how did she so swiftly climb her way to becoming a millionaire by age 32? Twenty-nine years of living in the lap of luxury later, it’s clear that the things she most values are still her fans, her politics, and her best friend Gayle King, who would most definitely take the bus with her when the limo breaks down.

When we think about Oprah, it’s important not to just view her as a mega-wealthy media figurehead, but as a symbol of opportunity and a proponent of the rare and precious best-girlfriend relationship.
