These are some standout quotes from an amazing video that features two people from different generations and “cultures.” Here is Maya Angelou’s side of the matter. Watch the video for Dave Chappelle’s.
Without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.
Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host.
Love is a condition so powerful, it may be that which holds the stars in the firmament.
Poison is still poison, even if you pour it into a crystal goblet.
Do you know how important you are?
Each of us has a chance to be somebody.
I think I need to talk to you, and I need you to talk to me.
How can I not listen to you, and be elevated by you?
You have someplace that nobody—neither kith nor kin—can take you beyond; somewhere, in the bend of your elbow.
