RIP Maya Angelou

This week’s blog was going to be on the topic of perseverance and I was going to include a poem titled “Don’t Quit”.  However with the passing of Dr. Maya Angelou I felt it was only appropriate to share some of her powerful words

You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.

Maya Angelou

One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.

Maya Angelou
