A Quote by Maya Angelou on patience and passion

Seek patience
and passion
in equal amounts.
 
Patience alone
will not build the temple.
 
Passion alone
will destroy its walls.

A Quote by Maya Angelou on woman, women, pride, identity, and self-image

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

A Quote by Maya Angelou on smile, love, home, family, and strangers

If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love.  Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning "Good morning" at total strangers.

A Quote by Maya Angelou

Love is that condition in the human spirit so profound that it allows me to survive, and better than that, to thrive with passion, compassion, and style.

A Quote by Maya Angelou

One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.

If you don't like something, change it.  If you can't change it, change your attitude.  Don't complain.
