Quotes by Maya Angelou (Page 3 of 4)







Longer Version:

To be left alone on the tightrope of youthful unknowing is to experience the excruciating beauty of full freedom and the threat of eternal indecision. Few, if any, survive their teens. Most surrender to the vague but murderous pressure of adult conformity. It becomes easier to die and avoid conflict than to maintain a constant battle with the superior forces of maturity.








































Longer Version:

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. People know themselves much better than you do. That's why it's important to stop expecting them to be something other than who they are.




























































Longer Version:

My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors.





Longer Version:

My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart.









Longer Version:

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away,.
















Longer Version:

You don't need another person, place or thing to make you whole. God already did that. Your job is to know it.
