My grandmother introduced me to Maya Angelou when I was only a little girl. She taught me that Angelou was the type of woman to look up to --outspoken, unapologetic, wise, kind-natured, brilliant, graceful-- a woman whose words were so powerful that we offer them up as motivation and inspiration for ourselves and others, often without knowing that it was she who spoke them first. The quote pictured here is a favorite of mine-- one that inspires me daily. The loss of a great woman like Maya is heartrending, though those that mourn her can take solace in the timelessness of her words.
