Maya Angelou was one of the greatest storytellers of our time. Her many quotes are classics. Some of my favorites are:
“The more you know of your history, the more liberated you are.”
“I got my own back.”
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
“When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”
Just some of the many great quotes by Maya Angelou…

She received dozens of awards and over 30 honorary doctoral degrees. Angelou is best known for her series of seven autobiographies, which focus on her childhood and early adult experiences. The first, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), tells of her life up to the age of seventeen and brought her international recognition and acclaim.
