It like we're curse when everything going good goes bad and loose everything. And trying to be strong is something that not in me but like ella dijia got to try.

Maya Angelou circa? Was such an inspiring woman. Amazing how much Oprah looks like her in her younger days.
Perhaps one of the most iconic photographs of Maya Angelou. Maya Angelou, the poet, the teacher, the author, the activist, the lover, the fighter, the phenomenal woman, was a prostitute. She lived that aspect of her life with no shame often embracing the point in time of her where she supported her son by any means necessary. “I never did anything wrong. Who, Moi? - never I. I have no skeletons in my closet. In fact, I have no closet," her honesty made her iconic and eternally remembered.
Maya Angelou -- oh my! I knew she had a varied past, but I never saw this one before!
Maya Angelou - this surprised me. Nobody mentioned this accomplishment..
Maya Angelou - this surprised me...Get it, Maya!!!

Mother Teresa, in addressing the Supreme Court of the United States said, "Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity. I have no new teaching for America. I seek only to recall you to faithfulness to what you once taught the world."

Mother Teresa (1910-1997) "Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work. "
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu and commonly known as Mother Teresa (1910-1997)
Mother Theresa (Dranafile Bojaxhiu) ~~~~ HER work through the Sisters of Charity will live on. You are now seeing the face of God, Blessed Mother Theresa
“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” — Mother Theresa
Mother Teresa (1910-1997), founded the Sisters of Charity in India, the primary mission of which was to companion India's "untouchables" in illness and in their dying. One of the world's great lovers of humankind, she is famous for her insightful comments, "Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love."
After Mother Teresa's death in 1997, the Holy See began the process of beatification, the third step toward possible canonisation. This process requires the documentation of a miracle performed from the intercession of Mother Teresa. In 2002, the Vatican recognised as a miracle the healing of a tumor in the abdomen of an Indian woman, Monica Besra, after the application of a locket containing Mother Teresa's picture.
Mother Teresa (1910-1997) the most beautiful woman on earth and in heaven
Mother Teresa (1910-1997). Love has so many faces...
"Do small things with great love." - Mother Theresa.
