Book Review: "Maya Angelou Quotes Of Wisdom & Hope: Life-Changing Lessons To Inspire, Empower, and Encourage You!"/ Edited By: Stan Hardy/ Publisher: Stan Hardy (Independently Published)/ Publication Date: November 13, 2021.
Hope. We need hope and self-empowerment and courage like never before. We are suspended in an era where global unrest and a viral threat to our health jeopardizes our inner peace and our connection with the world. The quest for inner peace is an ongoing one as is our need to be the best version of ourselves that contributes to society without extinguishing our own purpose in life and our own goals and beliefs.
"Maya Angelou's Quotes of Wisdom & Hope: Life-Changing Lessons To Inspire, Empower, and Encourage You" encapsulates words that uplift and feed the human mind with raw positivity. Her words are a beacon of hope, a guiding light for humanity from all walks of life.
How can anyone not be riveted by Ms. Angelou's quote:
"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."
Other notable quotes are:
"Open your eyes to the beauty around you, open your mind to the wonders of life, open your heart to those who love you, and always be true to yourself."
"You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you."
These are inspiring words every single human being benefits from being exposed to for as we move forward throughout our 'life journey,' we can lose our way, lose hope, lose confidence, feel burdened, feel stressed, forget our roots; et al. The afflictions that may plague us from being our best, most courageous and compassionate selves are overturned or at the very least, slowly eroded by reading Ms. Angelou's thought-provoking words.
This book is well organized and the reading experience is seamless with no formatting hiccups. This makes for a pleasant read. I can report to you that this compilation is definitely an inspiring, uplifting book to read. The wisdom that is emitted from her writing is a tangible thing that can be incorporated in one's own everyday life. The life lessons are priceless as they are timeless. I rate this book a 5/5.
