As people all over the world choose not to mourn in favor of celebrating her life instead, some are also remembering some "words of wisdom" from Maya herself.
We share a couple that resonate with anyone and everyone who cares about the very important work, the calling, to educate our young people...
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
"Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him."
"Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope."
"When you learn, teach, when you get, give."
...and the following simple sentiment:
"Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud."
