A Quote by Maya Angelou on life, awareness, and giving

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.

A Quote by Maya Angelou on language, travel, and friends

Being exposed to the existence of other languages increases the perception that the world is populated by people who not only speak differently from oneself but whose cultures and philosophies are other than one's own. Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try to understand each other, we may even become friends.

A Quote by Maya Angelou on maya and angelou

 

When we come to it
We must confess that we are the possible...
We are the miraculous, the true wonders of this world
Free to choose our ends, and our new beginnings
That is when, and only when...
We come to it

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.
