Maya Angelou

Today we celebrate the life of a woman who changed our history forever. I don't dare attempt to be able to honor her life with my words - but something about her spirit has held me all day. She reminds me to drink a little deeper from this cup of life. It will bring your heartache, trials, and pain, but it is also full of laughter, song, and dance. I'm going to dance more.

I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being. Maya Angelou

Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time. Maya Angelou

The honorary duty of a human being is to love. Maya Angelou

You are enough.  You don't need another person, place, or thing to make you whole. God already did that. Your job is to know it. Maya Angelou

Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option. Maya Angelou

Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God. Maya Angelou 

I don't trust people who don't love themselves and yet tell me, "I love you." There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt. Maya Angelou

Surviving is important. Thriving is elegant. Maya Angelou

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. Maya Angelou

Rest well dear mother to nations.
