"Maya Angelou Quotes"


+ 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.

+ People will forget what you said
People will forget what you did
But people will never forget how you made them feel.

+ Most people just get older, and they find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, choose personal preferences in drink, have the nerve to get married and have children, and they call that growing up. That's not. That's getting older.

+ When we come to it
We must confess that we are the possible
We are the miraculous, the true wonders of this world
That is when, and only when
We come to it.

+ Growing up is admitting that there are demons you cannot overcome.

+ Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.

+ If we are bold, love strikes away the chains of fear from our souls.

+ Love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

+ I mean, probably the only true escape is death, but even that is that undiscovered country from whose bond, you know, no traveler returns

+ I know what the caged bird feels
I know why the caged bird beats his wing
till its blood is red on the cruel bars,
for he must fly back to his perch and cling
when he fain would be on the bow aswing.

+ We have got to start loving life and the living. We have to respect that thing which we cannot create, which is life and stop taking it from people and stop taking it from things. Stop taking it. We can't make it. We can't reproduce one single person.
