“The woman who survives intact and happy must be at once tender and tough. She must have convinced herself, that she, her values, and her choices are important. In a time and world where males hold sway and control, the pressure upon women to yield their #rights-of-way is tremendous. And it is under those very circumstances that the woman's toughness must be in evidence.” #QuotsyDec19

Deifio Great quote! ❤️ 3d

Behind #Adventrecommends door number 2 is this series of memoirs by an incredible woman. Don‘t stop at the first one. From Angelou‘s work in the theatre, to her travel abroad, to her work in the Civil Rights movement, they just keep getting better and better.

Every time I read something Maya Angelou has set to paper, I want to curl up inside of it and never leave. I can‘t get enough of her voice.

Read this in one sitting. It was short and sweet. With everything going on in the world, and everything going on in my life, this was the perfect little book for me at this moment 😏

PBS just aired a wonderful program about the life of Maya Angelou. What an extraordinarily gifted and intelligent human being! I enjoy her writing and her wisdom.

I honestly just really wanted to read Maya this morning and I breezed through this book this morning. It was a simple collection of her thoughts on a range of subjects, all short, to the point and sweet.

A fantastic, honest, and engaging book! Angelou's writing is so accessible (something I'm always so conscious about), and the short sections made it even easier to read. I would definitely recommend her words of wisdom to anyone 📚

Every section of this spoke to me. Her wisdom and perspective resonated on so many levels. #NonfictionNovember2016
