"You may not control all of the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them."
That was just in the first couple of pages. In truth, the entire thing is quotable. It's a series of vignettes written as a letter to the daughter she never had. Her thoughts on honesty, vulgarity, charity, her relationship with God, and friends that have passed. She also has some advice about not whining, but with all due respect to Ms. Angelou, some of us may skillfully use whining to bring about the change we wish to see.
It's a really quick read. In fact, I finished it in one evening. And before you make fun Sally, this kind of thing is why we're months behind on our television shows.
