A Wisdom of Possibilities from Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou is a world renowned poet, writer, memoirist and civil rights activist.

Her work spans over 50 years granting the world with cherished creative and perspective through pen and pad.

Passing on in 2014, her impact and legacy stills carries on.

Here are Maya Angelou’s greatest words of wisdom:

“You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”

“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.”

“Nothing will work unless you do.”

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”

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

“When you learn, teach. When you get, give.”

“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.”

Thank you Maya, thank you for wisdom of possibilities.
