“Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: ‘I’m with you kid. Let’s go.’” – Maya Angelou
I once had the honor of interviewing Maya Angelou. It was one of the highlights of my 37-year journalistic career.
Says this wise old lady:
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
“My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.”
“Nothing will work unless you do.”
“The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.”
“I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t laugh.”
