Remembering Maya Angelou

April 4, 1928 ~ May 28, 2014

Maya Angelou reads her poem And Still I Rise.

I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. 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. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. 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.

Maya Angelou, honored poet and essayist (April 4, 1928 - May 28, 2014)

  • “Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.”
  • “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.”
  • “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
  • “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.”
  • “My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.”
  • “Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
  • “You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot - it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.”
  • “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

I wasn’t sad this morning when news reached me of Maya Angelou’s passing because I knew deep down Jimmy (as she so affectionately referred to longtime friend James Baldwin) was ready to welcome her home, Soul Train line and all. 

We were the lucky ones. 

April 4, 1928 - May 28, 2014


Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
—  Maya Angelou, in honour of the anniversary of her death tomorrow. (4 April 1928 – 28 May 2014)
