Maya Angelou Quote: My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive

I was watching an interview with Maya Angelou a few days ago, and the interviewer started by saying you've done this, you've done that, you've done all these things that didn't seem possible, what do you attribute that to? And she just smiled and said, "LOVE." I was absolutely blown away. What a beautiful inspiring soul who graciously shared her gift with the world. Even in her passing her light still shines. Thank you Maya Angelou .

Maya Angelou quotes

It was really hard for me to just pick one quote because she has said so many beautiful things, so here are a few more inspiring quotes from the Phenomenal Woman:

I am a Woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal Woman,
that’s me.

"Have enough courage to trust love one more time. And always one more time."


Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.
Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.
Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.
