I often put quotes up that I enjoy, or that made me think, or just smile, but when I discovered this one from Maya Angelou I felt I needed to give it an introduction. I just adore it. Every words rings true and the sentence about rainy days and lost luggage is simply perfect – so accurate yet also so heart warming. If i remember only two things it will be this sentence plus the final one.
In fact, wonderful quote aside, Maya is an amazing woman,she’s an all round artist and inspiration. She writes novels and poetry, produces films and speaks out about all kind of things. She’s been on two presidential committees and one of her first scripts was the first script ever written by an African American woman to be filmed. Even President Clinton loved her so much he requested that she personally composed a poem to read at his inauguration in 1993 and it was broadcast live around the world. Her words cross boundaries and touch people everywhere, and always with a touch of charm, energy and truth. Generally a very impressive woman indeed. You can read more about her here and you won’t help but be wowed – she has received over 30 honorary degrees in her time!
So introduction done, now ladies read on…..
