Friday Five: Maya Angelou

Happy Friday!

This week one of my favorite poets passed away, Maya Angelou. She was an amazing woman and accomplished so much throughout the duration of her life.  I remember my mom making memorize one of her poems, when I was young, and ever since then I have always admired the woman for her strength and courage.  
This article from CNN describes some highlights from Maya Angelou's life. 

Today's Friday five are quotes from Maya herself.

Enjoy your weekend!
