She is the Funniest, Looniest Woman in Her World


“Being a woman is hard work.  Not without joy and even ecstasy, but still relentless, unending work…the woman who survives intact and happy must be at once tender and tough…it is imperative that a woman keep her sense of humor intact and at the ready.  She must see, even if only in secret, that she is the funniest, looniest woman in her world, which she should also see as being the most absurd world of all times.  It has been said that laughter is therapeutic and amiability lengthens the lifespan.”

–Maya Angelou, Wouldn’t Take Nothing For My Journey Now
