Here are a dozen remarkable quotes from the remarkable American poet and writer Maya Angelou.
- Achievement brings its own anticlimax.
- Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.
- Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
- 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.
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
- If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.
- Love is like a virus. It can happen to anybody at any time.
- Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at it destination full of hope.
- The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.
- There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
- There is nothing so pitiful as a young cynic because he has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing.
- My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
