  1. Katie, what a nice tribute to a very special woman. The quotes you chose are some of her best. My favorite, (I think she said this) which Oprah aways used, was, and I'm sure I'm paraphrasing……'You do the best you can and when you know better, you do better'. I use this one to forgive myself and others, when needed. What a wise women she was. I wish there were more like her. We need role models, even at our age!

    Warmly, Kathleen

  2. Although I didn't agree with her politics, I really admired her for all her accomplishments. I often gave her books as gifts and everyone loved them. What a great lady, and what a gift she gave to the world! She will be missed.
    And now that I think about it – what a good lesson I've learned . . . political decisions don't define us and don't have to keep us from being friends!

  3. Katie,
    I have an intern working with me and I loved sharing about Maya's strengths and life. What a very lovely tribute.
    She left such an impression on me with her way with words and standing up for civil causes.

  4. Lovely tribute Katie. I felt the loss and her incredible inspiration. Just did a quick post on my way out to work the morning I heard. Thanks for sharing some of her most poignant words here.
