Sunday Citar - Maya Angelou


Fresh Mommy is hosting "Sunday Citar". Jump over to Tabitha's creative and thoughtful blog to read terrific quotes and see amazing photography.

My 9 year old was at an all day soccer tournament so I'm sunburned and tired. I didn't want to let Sunday go by without sharing two of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes.

"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."

"All great achievements require time."

I could probably add 20 more inspirational quotes from Maya Angelou. Her prose, poetry and philosophy will influence generations to come.

Oh yes...I am learning much about patience (hopefully some form of greatness will evolve out of it...lol). Hope you are well!

Love the Maya quotes. I was fortunate enough to see her speak last fall, and since you are a composer of poetry, I'll leave you a quote from that talk here ...

"You are composers. You can compose in your families, among your friends, in your neighborhoods. Compose good things, right action."

That first one really speaks to me. And the second? I need Mister Man to start believing in that one! If it isn't perfect the first time, he wants to give up *sigh*

I really love Maya! I've read a few of her books and know that she had a hard life. I love knowing that people who have faced such hardships can be so inspiring and positive!

Love your new layout. It's so fresh and beautiful for summer!
