A COLLECTION OF MAYA ANGELOU QUOTES

Beloved author, poet and legend Maya Angelou left behind an incredible body of work, which included quotes worth remembering. Here is a small sampling:

“I believe that each of us comes from the creator trailing wisps of glory.”

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

“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.”

“The need for change bulldozed a road down the center of my mind.”

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”

“I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.”

“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”

“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.”

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

 “Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.”
