we have some impulse within us

Photo by: Reichman Photography

"We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans—because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings. That’s why we paint, that’s why we dare to love someone–because we have the impulse to explain who we are. Not just how tall we are, or thin...but who we are internally…perhaps even spiritually. There’s something which impels us to show our inner-souls. The more courageous we are, the more we succeed in explaining what we know."

Maya Angelou


  1. To let the world see who we really are and be understood.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. The ultimate goal is connection through that self-expression. Good quote.

    I hope you're doing great!
