With the death of Maya Angelou, we lose the immense wisdom of the celebrated African American author, poet and civil activist. These quotes say a lot about who she was and what she stood for.
‘If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.’
‘You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.’
‘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.’
‘Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.’
‘If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.’
Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.‘
Maya Angelou – who was utterly amazing. Rest in peace to a phenomenal woman.
