Now I Can Speak.
“I’m bringing everything I ever knew- everything good, strong, kind and powerful. I bring it all with me into every situation. […] So I will take the Scandinavian story of the Little Princess, I will take the story of Heidi in the Alpine Mountains, I will take the story of O-Lan in Pearl S. Buck’s book The Good Earth, I will take them all. I take them, and I know them, and I am them. So when I walk into a room, people know that somebody has come in- they just don’t know it’s 2,000 people!”
Maya Angelou during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, December 2000.
