Nothing Will Work Unless You Do – Maya Angelou

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. – MA

A little fun fact about me, I’m a quotaholic. I LOVE quotes. Inspiring quotes help me through the toughest of times. I know I’m not alone in this. When I’m feeling defeated, lonely, sad, mad, etc. There’s a quote that can make me feel better about it. Maya Angelou was a celebrated poet/writer and in her death today, the world lost an extraordinary woman. Or, in her words, a Phenomenal woman. She has inspired me many a day and I know her words will live on for years and years to come.

Here’s a few of my favorite quotes:

“People will forget what you said, they will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.”

“I can be changed by what happens to me but I refuse to be reduced by it.”

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”

“You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.”

“One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential.”

“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.”


That’s all I’ll embark on you today. I just feel so sad that such a legend has left us but so glad to have learned about her and that she was so successful in life after overcoming such a rough childhood. ❤


Good night all! Share your smiles with someone you love. 🙂
