To celebrate Maya Angelou's memory, we collected her most inspirational quotes and sayings.

1. 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.

2. A wise woman wishes to be no one's enemy; a wise woman refuses to be anyone's victim.

3. I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.

4. If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.

5. If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.

6. I am grateful to be a woman. I must have done something great in another life.

7. My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.

8. Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.

9. If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.

10. I'm convinced of this: Good 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.

11. Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin - find some beautiful art and admire it, and realize that that was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less.

12. What is a fear of living? It's being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself - for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don't know what you're here to do, then just do some good.

13. 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.

14. It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody.

15. If you're serious, you really understand that it's important that you laugh as much as possible and admit that you're the funniest person you ever met. You have to laugh. Admit that you're funny. Otherwise, you die in solemnity.

16. We can learn to see each other and see ourselves in each other and recognize that human beings are more alike than we are unalike.

17. When a person is going through hell, and she encounters someone who went through hellish hell and survived, then she can say, 'Mine is not so bad as all that. She came through, and so can I.'

18. You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love.

19. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking.

She was a truly gifted and amazing woman! Maya Angelou, thank you for all your contributions. You will be greatly missed.
