Angelou stopped celebrating her birthday for years afterward, and sent flowers to King's widow, Coretta Scott King, for more than 30 years, until Coretta's death in 2006.

    Maya Angelou. We all have (I hope) books that change our lives. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings was one of those books for me. I was amazed and delighted to be assigned the book in an early Women's Studies class and even more delighted to find a woman who wrote the truth and talked about the day-to-day sorrows and joys of life in a way that, as a young woman of only 20, gripped me. Hooray for Maya Angelou.

She's given me my mantra for life... "I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it". Soul sister x NdS

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.
