Maya Angelou Quote: “To take a few nouns, and a few pronouns, and adverbs and adjectives, and put them together, ball them up, and throw them against the wall to make them bounce.

Maya Angelou Quote: “I make writing as much a part of my life as I do eating or listening to music.”
Maya Angelou Quote: “I also wear a hat or a very tightly pulled head tie when I write. I suppose I hope by doing that I will keep my brains from seeping out of my scalp and running in great gray blobs down my neck, into my ears, and over my face.”
Maya Angelou Quote: “Courage, I don’t think anybody is born with courage. I think you may be born with a flair to braggadocio, you know. That’s not courage.”
Maya Angelou Quote: “When the human race neglects its weaker members, when the family neglects its weakest one – it’s the first blow in a suicidal movement.”

Maya Angelou Quote: “Money and power can liberate only if they are used to do so. They can imprison and inhibit more finally than barred windows and iron chains.”
Maya Angelou Quote: “All my work, my life, everything I do is about survival, not just bare, awful, plodding survival, but survival with grace and faith. While one may encounter many defeats, one must not be defeated.”
Maya Angelou Quote: “We are the victims of the world’s most comprehensive robbery. Life demands a balance. It’s all right if we do a little robbing now.”
