Maya Angelou’s 90th birthday: 7 inspiring quotes to remember her by

Google paid tribute to Dr. Maya Angelou on what would have been the beloved author and activist’s 90th birthday.

On Wednesday, the company created a video doodle for its homepage set to her famous poem “Still I Rise,” featuring her own voice and the voices of six other individuals she inspired, including Alicia Keys, America Ferrera, Martina McBride, Angelou’s son Guy Johnson, Laverne Cox and Oprah Winfrey.

At age 7, Angelou was raped by her mother’s boyfriend -- an experience that rendered her mute for five years.

“During those years, however, books and poetry became her solace and constant companions, eventually helping her find her voice again to embark upon an intellectual and creative journey that defies description,” Google wrote in a blog post.

Angelou went on to perform in professional cabarets, covered Africa as a journalist and became a champion for civil rights. 

She became the first black woman to write a bestselling nonfiction book — her 1969 memoir, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.”

In 1998, she directed the film “Down in the Delta,” about a drug-wrecked woman who returns to the home of her ancestors in the Mississippi Delta.

Angelou was also the first poet in three decades to make an inaugural recitation when Bill Clinton became president in 1992.

She died at age 86 on May 28, 2014.

“Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it's how she did it all. She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence, and a fiery, fierce grace and abounding love,” Winfrey said in the Google blog.

To honor the prolific poet on her 90th birthday, here are seven quotes to remember her by:

1. “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

2. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

3. “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”

4. “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

5. “Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.”

6. “If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.”

7. “The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.”

Rocky has trained in worse weather than this.

>> Read more trending news

On a rainy day in Philadelphia, actor Sylvester Stallone posted a video of himself on the set of “Creed 2,” WPVI reported.

Stallone said it was the first day of filming for the newest installment of the “Rocky” saga that Stallone made famous in 1976 with his portrayal of everyman boxer Rocky Balboa. “Creed 2” is set to be released in November, WPVI reported.

"Well, here it is folks, on a beautiful Philadelphia day, but what's important is this is the first day of 'Creed 2,'" Stallone said. "I think Rocky is in this, so I'm ready to enjoy the day."

Stallone ascends the steps of his motor home that is on the set, recalling that when the original “Rocky” movie was filmed he had a motor home but it was in the back of a van.

"Progress is being made," Stallone said in the video.

He then invites the viewer to take a look inside his trailer, advising to “get out of the rain,” WPVI reported.

Once inside the trailer, Stallone blocks the camera’s view and says “Keep punching.”

Undoubtedly, Stallone used a left hook to block the view.

Yankees’ Aaron Judge promises more home runs in Pepsi digital spot

Promising to hit home runs is nothing new for major-league baseball players. Babe Ruth famously promised a four-bagger to 11-year-old Johnny Sylvester in 1926 -- and then delivered.

Ruth’s slugging descendant, Aaron Judge, does a 21st-century version in a new digital spot he shot for Pepsi, the New York Daily News reported.

Judge, who hit 52 homers as a rookie in 2017, is shown in the video sitting in a New York pizza parlor, eating a slice of pizza and sipping on a Pepsi Zero Sugar drink.

The owner of the restaurant is on the telephone talking with his mother, and the woman insists on talking to the Yankees outfielder.

The 2017 American League Rookie of the Year takes the phone and promises the woman he will do his best to hit 80 home runs in 2018.

Judge will need to crank up his power stroke to reach that plateau. Through four games, he is batting .200 with three hits and no home runs, the Daily News reported.

The New York slugger will resume his quest Tuesday, as the Yankees’ home opener against the Tampa Bay Rays was canceled Monday because of a blizzard that hit the New York area.
