Maya Angelou


  1. If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.

  2. 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.

  3. My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.

  4. I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a „living” is not the same thing as making a „life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.

  5. When someone shows you who they are believe them; the first time.

  6. You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.

  7. You can’t forgive without loving. And I don’t mean sentimentality. I don’t mean mush. I mean having enough courage to stand up and say, ‘I forgive. I’m finished with it.’

  8. You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.

  9. If I am not good to myself, how can I expect anyone else to be good to me?

  10. Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.

  11. You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I’ll rise!

  12. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.

  13. I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t laugh.

  14. Most people don’t grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.

  15. I don’t know if I continue, even today, always liking myself. But what I learned to do many years ago was to forgive myself. It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes- it is inevitable. But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, ‘Well, if I’d known better I’d have done better,’ that’s all. So you say to people who you think you may have injured, ‘I’m sorry,’ and then you say to yourself, ‘I’m sorry.’ If we all hold on to the mistake, we can’t see our own glory in the mirror because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror; we can’t see what we’re capable of being. You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end the real forgiveness is in one’s own self. I think that young men and women are so caught by the way they see themselves. Now mind you. When a larger society sees them as unattractive, as threats, as too black or too white or too poor or too fat or too thin or too sexual or too asexual, that’s rough. But you can overcome that. The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don’t have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as hell we should never teach.


  1. If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don’t be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning ‘Good morning’ at total strangers.

  2. When we find someone who is brave, fun, intelligent, and loving, we have to thank the universe.

  3. First best is falling in love. Second best is being in love. Least best is falling out of love. But any of it is better than never having been in love.

  4. If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.

  5. There is nothing so pitiful as a young cynic because he has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing.

  6. No one can take the place of a friend, no one.

  7. You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. Do not complain. Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution.

  8. If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.

  9. You are the sum total of everything you’ve seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot- it’s all right there.

  10. Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take buy by the moments that take your breath away.

  11. Hope for the best, be prepared for the worse. Life is shocking, but you must never appear to be shocked. For no matter how bad it is it could be worse and no matter how good it is it could be better.

  12. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.

  13. Remember, people will judge you by your actions not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold but so does a hard-boiled egg.

  14. There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside of you.

  15. You can’t get too high for somebody to bring you down.
