R.I.P. Maya Angelou

Today the world lost legendary poet, author, and activist Mayo Angelou.

Most people know Ms. Angelou because of this book:

Despite frequent attempts at banishment, this work is still required reading for many high school and college students.

But as an activist and voice of her generation, she also said some amazing things. Here is a small sampling of some of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes.
