Rainbow in the Cloud : The Wit and Wisdom of Maya Angelou

Description

An inspiring collection of quotations from the beloved and bestselling author of I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS.

'A brilliant writer, a fierce friend and a truly phenomenal woman' BARACK OBAMA

Inspired by the woman who has inspired us all, Rainbow in the Cloud offers nearly 300 of Maya Angelou's wonderful quotes, organised in themed sections (including art, love, spirituality, womanhood, and life in the American South) - from sage advice and beautiful stanzas to humorous quips and pointed observations - drawn from each of her published works and from her celebrated (and much shared) social media posts. This collection also features special words of wisdom she shared often with her family, chosen by her son, Guy Johnson.

'She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace . . . She will always be the rainbow in my clouds' OPRAH WINFREY

'She was important in so many ways. She launched African American women writing in the United States. She was generous to a fault. She had nineteen talents - used ten. And was a real original. There is no duplicate' TONI MORRISON
