For over 50 years Maya Angelou used her love of language to inspire generations of women. As an activist, playwright, director, autobiographer, dancer and poet, she was a true artist across a variety of mediums. But, no matter how she choose to express herself, Angelou’s message was unwavering. Today, her words are still a powerful reminder of the beauty of diversity, the strength and potential of women and the human spirit’s capacity for love and generosity.

“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.”
Maya Angelou understood the importance of savoring life.  Instead of just trying to get by, let these words inspire you to enjoy the adventure of life. By spending time on the things you enjoy, caring for others and making the most out of even difficult situations, you can create a life a life you love.

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
More that just enjoying your own life, Angelou taught the importance of lifting others up.  Everyone experiences difficult times and hard days. Reaching out to soothe the pain of others and bringing joy into another life will brighten not only their day, but yours as well.

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude about it.”
Angelou believed that ordinary people are capable of extraordinary things. She taught that everyone has both the ability and responsibility to create a better world. But, she also knew the value of a positive perspective. Deciding to be happy is first step to feeling happy.

“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”
Angelou taught that when striving to create change, in your own life on in the world, there will be obstacles. But, we cannot allow those obstacles keep us from our goals. To see success we must push past the things that try to hold us back.

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
Angelou believed that love is an incredibly powerful force. Love can fuel your efforts and give you the strength needed to pursue your dreams. Let love inspire you to do great things in your life.
