"People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered –
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives –
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies –
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you –
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight – Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous – Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow –
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough –
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God –
It’s never between you and them anyway."

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. -Maya Angelou
All great achievements require time. -Maya Angelou
Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage. -Maya Angelou
I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass. -Maya Angelou
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. -Maya Angelou
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. -Maya Angelou
Nothing will work unless you do. -Maya Angelou
There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth. -Maya Angelou
I can be changed by what happens to me. but I refuse to be reduced by it. -Maya Angelou
Love life, engage in it, give it all you've got. love it with a passion, because life truly does give back, many times over, what you put into it. -Maya Angelou
If you love something, let it go.
Everything happens for reason.
Sometimes, you just have to take the people out of your life that are only bringing you down.
When someone doesn't do anything else but blame others for their own problems, all you can do is feel bad for them.
The only person you can change is yourself.
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU GATHER, BUT WHAT YOU SCATTER THAT TELLS WHAT KIND OF LIFE YOU HAVE LIVED.
