"If he was headstrong, I had made him so. If, in his adolescent opinion, he was the best representative of the human race, it was my doing and I had no apology to make."

"Sometimes it's wiser to be right in silence, you know?"

"Speak up. Tell the truth, no matter what the situation."

Maya Angelou, everyone. #24in48
