    Alice Walker, born in 1944, is a renowned American novelist, poet, and activist, notably acclaimed for “The Color Purple.” Her inspirational quotes emphasize personal power, like “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” Another encourages self-reliance: “Don’t wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get, you’ve got to make yourself.” Walker’s activism mantra is, “Activism is my rent for living on this planet,” and she advocates embracing uncertainty: “Expect nothing. Live frugally on surprise.” Her profound impact extends globally, inspiring resilience, self-love, and social responsibility.
