Maya Angelou: An Inspiration to the World

Maya Angelou: An Inspiration to the World

“I believe the most important single thing, beyond discipline and creativity is daring to dare.” “I can be changed by what happens to me. I refuse to be reduced by it.”

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

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

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

Maya Angelou’s life and successes just prove that you can build a beautiful life no matter what your background. She was truly gifted with an amazing ability to speak so profoundly and elegantly. Every time I read her poems, quotes, books… I am always left in awe of her writings and simply inspired. She was deep and I’m so thankful that she was able to share her talent with the world. She was the phenomenal woman, a legendary author, a real woman whose story and life has brought hope and strength to me, in my own life.

May she rest in peace…

Dr. Maya Angelou

April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014
