“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

2019 Book 54: So I may have skimmed some of this book because it just didn‘t grab my attention. I found it a little boring, although I respect Maya Angelou and the impact she made on behalf of the African American community. I‘ll stick to her poetry. ⭐️⭐️

LapReader I love her but not the book. 2d

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.

“It was not that he pitied me
but that he felt we were in the same boat for different reasons,
and that I could understand his frustration just as he could countenance my withdrawal.”

Letter To My Daughter | Maya Angelou

Unpopular opinion that I did not like this as much as I thought I would. It consists of a series of advice written like letters applicable to the reader: life advice, traveling, religion, love and respect, courage, and relationships. It was a quick read ad I enjoyed snippets from her life, her experiences, her relationships with her mother, grandmother, and son. This was on my TBR for a long time and was glad that I bought a copy. #NFNov

"As I had always feared, no, known, the trials had been for nothing. (The dread of futility has been my lifelong plague.) Excitement, apprehension, release and anger had drained me of mobility. I waited for Fate, the string puller, to dictate my movements."

9/10 because not only could I not put it down, I wanted to listen to it immediately all over again.

Courageous and irreverent, Maya was such an amazing and impressive woman. Her son is as amazing as his mother. Great documentary.
