Thoughts from Maya

August 17

I recently read Letter To My Daughter by Maya Angelou. I have read several of Maya’s books and am amazed with the life she lived, the challenges she overcame and the inspirational person she was. Here area a few quotes from Letter To My Daughter.

The human heart is so delicate and sensitive that it always needs some tangible encouragement to prevent it from faltering in its labor. The human heart is so robust, so touch, that once encouraged it beats its rhythm with a loud unswerving insistency. ~Maya Angelou, Letter To My Daughter

I came to understand that I can never forget where I came from. My soul should always look back and wonder at the mountains I had climbed and the rivers I had forged and the challenges which still await down the road. I am strengthened by that knowledge. ~Maya Angelou, Letter To My Daughter

I knew that if God loved me, then I could do wonderful things, I could try great things, learn anything, achieve anything. For what could stand against me, since one person, with God, constitutes the majority? ~Maya Angelou, Letter To My Daughter
