Susan B. Anthony & Elizabeth Cady Stanton were the founders of women’s rights in America. They campaigned for women’s suffrage by playing to each other’s strengths. Anthony, who wasn’t married, could travel around the country rallying for their cause, while Stanton, an excellent writer, wrote her speeches for her. “No power in heaven, hell or earth can separate us, for our hearts are eternally wedded together,” Stanton once wrote to Anthony.

Many times her poetry and wisdom have lifted my heavy heart and freed my mind.
Oprah Presents Master Class with Maya Angelou - another good one. My favorite quote from this - "Words are things. You must be careful. Careful about calling people out of their names...with derogatory perjoratives, and sexual perjoratives. Don't do that. Someday we'll be able to measure the power of words. I think they are things, they get on your walls, in your wallpaper, in your rugs, in your upholstery, in your clothes, and finally into you."
Dr. Maya Angelou's Master Class Quotes: "Love Liberates. - "I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now and to be able to love, because that liberates. Love liberates. It doesn't just hold—that's ego. Love liberates. It doesn't bind. Love says, 'I love you. I love you if you're in China. I love you if you're across town. I love you if you're in Harlem.'" — Dr. Maya Angelou, 1928 - 2014 #celebrationoflife #MayaAngelou #Oprah #Ownmasterclass #loveliberates

Sylvia Plath: (October 27, 1932- February 11, 1963) -- Author of several poems, short-stories, and her semi-autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar, Plath’s suicide forever immortalized her as the embodiment of “wasted genius”.
“I am a writer and my faith in the world of art is intense, but not irrational, nor naïve — because art takes us and makes us take a journey beyond price, beyond cost, into bearing witness to the world as it is and as it should be. Art invites us to know beauty and to solicit it, summon it, from even the most tragic of circumstances.” —Toni Morrison, at the 2013 Vanderbilt University graduation.
