Marla Gibbs quotes :
In my life I've learned that true happiness comes from giving. Helping others along the way makes you evaluate who you are. I think that love is what we're all searching for. I haven't come across anyone who didn't become a better person through love.Marla Gibbs
I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we're all teachers - if we're willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.Marla Gibbs
The reason most of the children are having problems in any inner-city neighborhood is because they don't see enough positive role models in their own environment.Marla Gibbs
