I was saddened to hear of Maya's passing, but happy I lived in a generation that was able to have her in it.

She had so many quotes of courage, love and support. I think she was an amazing woman and brought MUCH to this world.

She will leave a legacy! This world was a better place because she was in it.

I think I will go buy a book about her and read her life story. I've never done that. And probably should have long before now.

Some of my favorite quotes from Maya include:

"When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time
"Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage
