maya Angelou 1928-2014

Maya Angelou, poet, author, activist and Renaissance woman has passed.

"All my work, my life, everything I do is about survival, not just bare, awful, plodding survival, but survival with grace and faith. While one may encounter many defeats, one must not be defeated."

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” 

“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.” 

“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass.” 

“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” 

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue consistently.” 

“I do not trust people who don't love themselves and yet tell me, 'I love you.' There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.” 

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
