Maya Angelou was a wealth of wisdom and thankfully was beyond eloquent in sharing her experiences and passionate about expressing what she had learned. Here are a few favorite quotes from her, though they are countless in number that we all treasure.

1) “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.”

2) “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

3)“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.”

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. 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.”

And I think my favorite:

5) “The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.”
