`Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud’ – Maya Angelou
When Maya Angelou died at aged 86, her fans and readers mourned. But they remembered the many gifts this phenomenal woman gave us – her voice, her laughter, her spirit, her courage, her style, her inspiration, her wit – which thrilled and encouraged us.
Her greatest legacy was her extraordinary way with words. Since the publication of her first autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Maya Angelou has been celebrated as one of the world’s most important writers and her words are indelibly imprinted on the hearts of millions.
Inspired by the woman who inspired us all, Rainbow in the Cloud offers a collection of Dr Angelou’s wonderful quotes – from sage advice and beautiful stanzas to humorous quips and pointed observations – drawn from each of her published works and the special words of wisdom she shared with her family, chosen by her son, Guy Johnson.
