Maya Angelou


On the passing of a powerful soul…

We were so lucky to have known Maya Angelou both while she was active and writing, as well as following her passing into an afterlife where she will be enshrined as a Woman of Infinite Wisdom. The spirit of Maya lives on in the countless people the world over she spoke to and wrote to.

From the title of her “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," to her best known quotes which still guide my everyday life…

“Nothing will work unless you do.”

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

“To be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”

“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.”

So much insight, so many inspirations...
