We were very sad to hear the news of Maya Angelou’s death yesterday. Not only was she a renowned author and poet, but also did so much for the Civil Rights Movement.

To honour her life and contribution, here are some of her inspirational quotes.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.

You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.

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.

I believe the most important single thing, beyond discipline and creativity, is daring to dare.

If you get, give. If you learn, teach.
