'Love is a condition so powerful; it may be that which pulls the stars in the firmament. It may be that which pushes and urges the blood in the veins. Courage: you have to have courage to love somebody because you risk everything – everything.'

Maya Angelou was a gift to the world.

I agree with that...I am still to read her books.

Maya Angelou was a wise person. May she RIP.

She was very wise indeed... that is what makes her writing about being a black woman universal. Even to a white man like me.

So many great things in our current world have come from love, especially the arts!

Coolest of cool quotes. Thanks for this tribute to love, to courage, to the human race and especially to Maya Angelou :)

She truly was a 'Phenomenal woman'!

This is so true. Love is the most powerful force in the world. And love is certainly not for wimps.

Pfewww...i am more comfortable in my manhood! LOL

Oh you can be. It takes balls to love.

I agree.

Oh....that is Love, alright....and....it truly does take courage to love.

That or a lapse of sanity

That....as well! lol....

I read somewhere that you cannot truly love without loosing your mind. And I very much agree with this statement.

It is the best way to lose it....lol....I think ;)

Ain't that the truth
