" Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size but when I start to tell them, They think I'm telling lies. I say, It's in the reach of my arms the span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me." - Maya Angelou.

Eleanor Roosevelt Quote 1949 - taken from the documentary: The Roosevelts, An Intimate History (Part 7) on PBS

Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high, ... Still I'll rise.  Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling down like teardrops. Weakened by my soulful cries.  Does my haughtiness offend you? ... You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I'll rise. ... -- Maya Angelou
