From Maya Angelou
"I somehow got the feeling early on that if human beings did a thing, I could study it and try to do some of it too. And one thing led to another. If I had not studied Latin in school, I wouldn’t have found it as easy to comprehend the structure of language. Had I not danced, I might never have really listened to music and known I could compose something.
You see? I understood early that not everything I did was going to be a masterpiece, but I would try to do it the best I knew how. I’ve listened to an inner voice and had enough courage to try unknown things. And I think everything in its time."
You gain strength, experiences
and confidence by every
experience where you really
stop to look fear in the face...
You must do the thing you cannot do."— Eleanor Roosevelt
