Thanks for posting this Carla.  

This woman was so respected and loved.  

She was a unique, wise woman.  Her words live on in her public writings, thankfully.  She overcame obstacles that encourage many of us to forge ahead, and she deserves all the kind words coming her way at this time.  Deb (debmarie)
Thank you so very much Katmommie for honouring such a great Idol of our time. I still read her poems sometimes as they speak to me, empower me and drive me when i want to give up. 
Praise to Maya Angelou

Best wishes
“I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life."

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

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.

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

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.”

 ― Maya Angelou
