I have met in history since I was a man many winners whose faces I found hideous. Because I read hatred and loneliness in them. They were nothing when they were not winners. To be, they had to kill and enslave. But there is a race of men who helps us breathe, who has not found existence and freedom but in freedom and happiness of all, and who can therefore find, even in defeat, reasons for living and loving. These men, even defeated, will never be alone.

Facing an intimidating situation, come as one, but stand as ten thousand Facing an intimidating situation, come as one, but stand as ten thousand
Maya Angelou by Henry Lee Battle

[Oprah Winfrey said in one of the interview she was giving :]

"There’s a wonderful phrase by Maya Angelou, from a poem that she wrote called “To our grandmothers”, that she says:

I come as one, but I stand as ten thousand.

So when I walk into a room, particularly before I have something really challenging to do, or I’m going to be in a circumstance where I feel I’m going to be you know, up against some difficulties. I will literally sit, and I will call on the 10,000."

Note : the actual phrase in the poem is : "I go forth along, and stand as ten thousand."
