Let Us All Rise! #WhatsupWednesday

Let today’s post be a celebration of the wonderful poet, singer, memoirist, and civil rights activist Dr Maya Angelou. This is one my most favorite poems of all time (thanks, Google Doodle!). It reminds me of hope, courage, triumph over adversities, equality and the importance of self-acceptance. Maybe it’s timely, too, that I am reminded of it.

Still I Rise

Happy 90th Birthday, Dr. Maya Angelou!

 

Life as They Said It #atozchallenge2017

What makes a written work great is that it gives meaning to the reader. The best books and literary pieces often have us thinking, questioning, wondering, enlightened. Not surprisingly, many of what have been written and said get shared to others countless times. They can be very logical or philosophical, with a lot of wisdom, becoming mantras to many especially during hard times.

It is with pleasure that I share some of the best life quotes from authors, poets and their written works.

ENJOY!!!

From Tao Te Ching. This is a personal fave and my motto in life because it covers everything
