Legendary poet and author Maya Angelou died this morning at age 86. Among other many other words of wisdom, she advised:

  • “Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.”
  • “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. Please remember that your difficulties do not define you. They simply strengthen your ability of overcome.”
