Maya Angelou, poet and author, dies at 86 - CBS News

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”   —   Maya Angelou

(I guess it all kinda depends on what type of story you’re bearing/hiding.  It’s been a month, or so, since we’ve had a Maya Angelou quote.  Good to see her again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud.”   —   Maya Angelou

(With some people, no preparation is necessary.  They’re naturally cheery, and pierce many people’s clouds.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Mostly common sense, but it’s also part of human nature for one partner to be a little more . . . devoted than the other.  Sure, it should be a two way street, but the traffic is usually a little slower going one way.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Kind of a strange coincidence that today’s Jumble and Cryptoquote deal with the word “heart”.  But, maybe they should try going with M. Angelou, from time to time.  I’d kind of settled on the S being the E, but when I saw the author’s name layout I knew instantly that it was Ms. Angelou.  Took away all the fun, for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Pick up the battle and make it a better world just where you are.  It can be better, but it’s up to us.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Kind of a spin on:  “Think globally, act locally”.  Don’t think that you’re too small and unimportant to make a difference.  All of our collective actions can better the world.  So, keep doing good, folks!)   —   YUR

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Yeah.  Don’t play the martyr, and try to take on everybody’s problems.  You just can’t do it.  Your friends and relatives will just become overly dependent on you, and you will just make yourself sick and drive yourself nuts!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

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.”   —   Maya Angelou

(I kind of cheated on this today.  I usually try to stay away from the author, but it caught my eye today.  And, I couldn’t un-see it!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Do the best you can until you know better.  Then when you know better, do better.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Maya Angelou has worked her way up to being a major player in the Cryptoquote world!  Mark Twain is #1, and Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson and Abraham Lincoln seem to be tied for #2.  Maya is right up there with George Bernard Shaw and Albert Einstein!  I’m not THE biggest Maya Angelou fan, but I dig her positivity!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they’re stones that don’t matter.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Yeah, baby!  At a bare minimum give them a quick:  S’up?  All most people really want is some kind of acknowledgement that you’re not just walking past a stone.  If you’re not just passing by, listen for an answer.  And, smile.  Make someone’s day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
