Extraordinary and legendary Late Maya Angelou.

Maya Angelou was one of most accomplished women in the world; she has passed away at the age of 86 but left behind her legacy. She was a devote warrior for human equality, tolerance and peace. An extraordinary mind and an accomplished poet, novelist and literary giant.

In tribute to her many achievements let’s recap some of her most insightful quotes over the years:

 1. “Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.” 

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

3. “Nothing will work unless you do.”

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

5. “I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as making a ‘life.’”

6. “Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”

7. “The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.”

8. “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 you.”

9. “Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.”
