“I worry about the country. I worry about where we are as a country,” the 67-year-old actress explained. “And the word isn’t even worry. I see the distance and the inability of various sides and factions to hear each other. I can see this kind of spiralling into the lack of truth on the part of a lot of individuals and you and I both know that can lead ultimately to no good.”


She added, “So I think about those things, but I don’t fear those things.”


But Winfrey admits there are larger factors at play that help her not worry.

“The favour and the hand of something, the energetic force field of something other than my own mind and personality are at work here,” she said.


Winfrey also reflected on Maya Angelou telling her that her legacy is “never one thing.”


“Your legacy is everything,” she said. “Your legacy is every life you have touched.”
