Her words will last forever

Thank you, Dr. Maya Angelou, for the example you provided!

"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."

"All great achievements require time."

"One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest."

"A wise woman wishes to be no one's enemy; a wise woman refuses to be anyone's victim."

"I'm convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. As long as you're breathing, it's never too late to do some good."

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."

"All great artists draw from the same resource: the human heart, which tell us that we are all more alike than unalike."

"I know that I'm not the easiest person to live with. The challenge I put on myself is so great that the person I live with feels himself challenged. I bring a lot to bear, and I don't know how not to."

"Our stories come from our lives and from the plawright's pen, the mind of the actor, the roles we create, the artistry of life itself and the quest for peace."

"I got my own back."

"The more you know of your history, the more liberated you are."
