Maya Angelou opens a health center for womenAmong Maya Angelou’s many profound, and very wise, thoughts is:

“I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me,” she said. If I do that well enough, then I’ll be able to look after someone else. But I have to look after myself first,” she says.  “I know that some people think that’s being selfish, I think that’s being self-full,” Angelou adds.
