Poet, writer, journalist, activist - Maya Angelou was an all round incredible lady. 4th April 2018 marks her 90th Birthday. To celebrate, here are eight of our favourite inspirational quotes from her.
"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."
"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."
"Love recognises no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope."
"Just like moons and like suns. With the certainty of tides. Just like hopes springing high. Still I'll rise."
"The truth is, right may not be expedient. It may not be profitable, but it will satisfy your soul."
‘Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible.’
Happy Birthday Maya Angelou!
