My Top 10 Quotes from Maya Angelou for your own personal growth and success.

Maya Angelou was an American poet, singer, memoirist, and civil rights activist. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. (source – Wikipedia)

Here is my selection of her quotes I considered my top 10 best.

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. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
3. When you know you are of worth, you don’t have to raise your voice, you don’t have to become rude, you don’t have to become vulgar; you just are. And you are like the sky is, as the air is, the same way water is wet. It doesn’t have to protest.
4. You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.
5. I was told many years ago by my grandmother who raised me: If somebody puts you on a road and you don’t feel comfortable on it and you look ahead and you don’t like the destination and you look behind and you don’t want to return to that place, step off the road.
6. Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.
7. One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.
8. Someone was hurt before you, wronged before you, hungry before you, frightened before you, beaten before you, humiliated before you, raped before you… yet, someone survived… You can do anything you choose to do.
9. There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
10. Determine to live life with flair and laughter.
