I recently finished reading ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings’, which is the first instalment of Maya Angelou’s autobiography. It’s a fantastic book; beautifully written and sagely told, and it made me really curious to learn more about this very famous writer. Here are some of my favourite quotes that I came across – enjoy!
History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
Love recognises no barriers.It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
In diversity there is beauty and there is strength.
A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
We are only as blind as we want to be.
Have enough courage to trust love one more time.
Maya Angelou has quickly become one of my favourite writers, and I can’t wait to get into more of her work.
Do you have any favourite Angelou poems or quotes?
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
