Maya Angelou, born Marguerite Ann Johnson; April 4, 1928
I posted the below quotes nearly two years ago. Often when I re-post quotes I will change them up a bit. But these move me still.
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."
"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."
"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain."
"Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it."
"You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you."
Okay...I said five, but here's one more.
"I believe we are still so innocent. The species are still so innocent that a person who is apt to be murdered believes that the murderer, just before he puts the final wrench on his throat, will have enough compassion to give him one sweet cup of water."
