Maya Angelou

We need to haunt the house of history and listen anew to the ancestors' wisdom.
Maya Angelou

Since time is the one immaterial object which we cannot influence -- neither speed up nor slow down, add to nor diminish -- it is an imponderably valuable gift. Each of us has a few minutes a day or a few hours a week which we could donate to an old folks home or a children's hospital ward. The elderly whose pillows we plump or whose water pitchers we refill may or may not thank us for our gift, but the gift is upholding the foundation of the universe.
Maya Angelou

Here on the pulse of this new day, You may have the grace to look up and out; And into your sister's eyes, into; Your brother's face, your country; And say simply, Very simply, With hope, Good Morning.
Maya Angelou
