RIP Maya Angelou

I first heard about Maya Angelou through another wonderful woman of our time, Oprah Winfrey.
You can't not think of Maya and not think of Oprah and vis-versa.
Yesterday when we heard about her death, a couple of girls in my office didn't know who Maya was
but I'm thankful to have been introduced to this wonderful woman from the Oprah Show, from her storytelling, books and poems, from her inspiring quotes....

“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.” ― Maya Angelou

After I read 'I Know why the caged bird sings' the first of her autobiographical novels, I was so moved by her early life, her struggles, her hopes that I ordered the whole set online to read some more
 ...I think I will pull them out my bookshelf to read again...

RIP Maya....

  4. I also learnt about Maya Angelou from the Oprah Show Anastasia. What a remarkable woman, so spiritual and wise, her voice was very soothing. I've heard of her book but never read it, must see if it's at the library.
