10 Leadership Nuggets from Maya Angelou

Posted on May 29, 2014

Maya Angelou has had a tremendous impact on the world and with her passing comes reflection on some of her most memorable quotes.  This LinkedIn article brings 10 Maya Angelou quotes that mention or reflect on some aspect of leadership.  Among my favorite are the following:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

“If you don’t like something, change it.  If  you can’t change it, change your attitude.  Don’t complain.”

“I’m convinced of this:  God done anywhere is good done everywhere.  For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they’re stones that don’t matter.  As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to do some good.”

“Whatever you want to do, if you want to be great at it, you have to love it and be able to make sacrifices for it.”
