Maya Angelou

r & CRonovan and Colleen invite us write to inspire ourselves and others on BeWoW Wednesday and Writer’s Quote Wednesday. It fits right in with my Wednesday Write-up.

I scroll through the quotes on the page looking for just the right one for me. Maya Angelou is credited with this quote.

I’ve always been a writer of letters, notes, list. Teaching is my career since 1960 through 2006. I’ve been a teacher for children, college classes and Sunday school classes. Now I write my blog with the mind-set that I’ll pass something on worthwhile; still teaching after all these years. May my last breath contain some bright gem passed from the angel come to escort me home to listening ears.

Maya Angelou was an author. I know she was intent on teaching other to learn from her painful experiences, enrichment of the human spirit. Just listen… Now from her legacy captured in print and video, she still is teaching.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”  Adopted by MH from MA

  2. Meredith, I always get tears and shivers when I listen to Maya Angelou’s, “And Still I rise.” She is absolutely one of the best poets of our time. I love that you are still teaching. It is a part of you that will never leave. Thanks for that. ❤
