Oprah Winfrey will end her daily talk show today ... after 25 successful years on the air.

During her final show, taped yesterday but airing today, the 57-year-old host addressed her final audience with the following:

    "There are no words to match this moment. This show has been going on for 4561 days of my life."

As for her fashion choices before hiring a stylist, Oprah added, "[I had] just a Jheri Curl and a bad fur coat."

300 audience members, including friends Gayle King and Maria Shriver, watched as Oprah gave her final words. Lady O said:

    "Gratitude is the single greatest treasure I will take with me from this experience. I thank you for sharing this yellow brick road of blessings. I won't say goodbye -- I'll just say, 'Until we meet again.'"
