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

I’m convinced of this:  Good done anywhere is good done everywhere.”   —   Maya Angelou

(But, I think we all need to do as much good as possible.  If only to offset the bad that too many unhappy, negative people do.  So, as usual, be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to do some good.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Another gem, from the ambassador of positivity!  I think it’s kind of like the saying:  it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.  I’m not sure how true this is, but smiling and doing good go hand in hand together, and are such simple acts, so why not!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”   —   Maya Angelou

(This one was a little tough getting started.  The author’s name was a big help again.  Do you think there is some significance in there being no letter I in this quote?  After all, there is no “I” in team, as the saying goes.  I like the quote’s collective tone!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
