Dr Maya Angelou: Love Liberates
Deeply poignant and sage words that will help us all to love more wisely.

Love has to be the most powerful emotion in the world. With its many facets, it can heal and transform, and it can enslave and cause division. But it can also create miracles. The late Maya Angelou lived an exceptional life with deeply painful incidents that saw her stop speaking for some years when she was a child. But through it all, she stayed committed to love.

The famed author and civil rights activist-feminist had her fair share of deep challenges in her life, and discovered a more powerful understanding of the heart that grew out of the pain she endured. She shares her take on a love that leads to freedom.

“I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now and to be able to love, because that liberates. Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that’s ego. Love liberates.”

Poignant words of wisdom from the late Maya Angelou.
