More Maya Angelou Stamps Featuring Quotations She May Or May Not Have Actually Said

Last week the beleaguered U.S. Post Office released a special stamp commemorating Maya Angelou, the late poet, author and civil rights activist. 

Unfortunately the stamp was marred by the fact that it featured a quote Angelou didn't actually write. The quote was from A Cup Of Sun, a book of poetry by Joan Walsh Anglund. 

One would think one might want to double check something like that before one prints a couple million stamps, but this is the Post Office we're talking about, so such a blunder is just par for the course.

The red-faced Post Office has vowed to fix the error, releasing an entire series of Maya Angelou stamps, featuring more quotes that she may or may not have actually said.
