Quote of the Day

Image result for maya angelou

Maya Angelou was a titan of 20th-century American letters. Probably best known to most as a poet and the author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), she was also an influential civil rights activist and voice for both African-Americans and women as a whole for decades.

There are many beautiful and inspirational examples of her writing I could choose from when it comes to quoting Ms. Angelou, but I like this one below, partly because it’s simple and poetic, but also because I too believe in this life mantra.

“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.”
