The Surgeons Miracle / Dr Angelos Baby Bombshell uAnd that in itself was motivational She isndoubtably a phenomenal woman and hearing her read to me was like getting a warm hug mixed with a pep talk The book started off strong but towards the end the message seemed to get lost and murky My main issue with this collection was that it seemed The Beast Within (Knights of White unorganised and a fair few essays felt irrelevant The word essays glorifies some of the 2 3 page ramblings of life lessons and advice beingnsubtly shoved down your throat There were a few memorable essays but overall I feel like there was not my much of worth This next problem might just be a me thing but for a book claiming to be for her daughters Black and White Jewish and Muslim Asian Spanish speaking Native Americans and Aleut it seemed The Best Man in Texas uite American centric As someone who lives outside the US I encounter thisite a bit but it doesn t The Prodigal Comes Home (Mirror Lake, usually bother me It makes sense since Maya Angelou is American that some stories would be patriotic or aimed at her own people but I think I was just expecting it to beniversal It really wasn t that prevalent just something that mildly irritated me and I thought I should mention it I might be overreacting and taking it too much to heart but after a while it just felt as if I was being shut out of the story and the message wasn t for me Which completely goes against the message she intended to send so I don t know Just as an example We must show ourselves as courteous and courageous well meaning Americans It doesn t seem that difficult to me to extend that message worldwide just swap it out for humans or people etcThe stories that I liked I really liked so I definitely have the potential to like some of her other works I ve never read anything by Maya Angelou before but I ve heard good things about I know why the caged bird sings so I might try that one next Angelou s book Letter to My Daughter caught my eye immediately as I was browsing the shelves at Barnes and Noble I picked it Beast Of Darkness (Knights of White up and settled in a comfy chair with my latte and my soon to be good friend Maya I was ready for advice wisdom love and experiences from a woman who has lived many lives than I could ever imagine Not to mention one who puts it so elouentlyIt is a craving of 20somethings to be gently advised in life from those who have already gone through the same struggles It is especially important to 20 something women reguardless of whether we admit it or not It is the advice that doesn t tells how to live but or less how not to that is needed I am not interested in passive people and have the Hawks Way Grooms (Hawks Way utmost respect for passionate strong womenina non feminist waywhich of course has lead me to Maya Angelou s work Letter to My Daughter highlights experiences in Maya Angelou s life that have helped shape her They range from topics such as ignorance racism education love faith andpbringing I was drawn in ntil I realized that a good portion of the chapters were taken from another work of hers Won t Take Nothing for My Journey Now Which I had just finished It wouldnt surprise me if the remaining chapters were taken from other works of her s as well Needless to say I was a little dissapointed I wanted something new and fresh More or less a book directed at women hense the title I can not hold it against Angelou of course I meanshes Maya Angelou perhaps I am just being selfish wanting of her words when she has published *So Many Pieces Devoted To * many pieces devoted to Reading Maya Angelou is like getting a big hug on a bad day She has the most comforting voice and may be the wisest person I can think of I want may be the wisest person I can think of I want be like her when I grow p Favorite otes Make every effort to change things you do not like If you cannot make a change change the way you have been thinking I remind myself it is sufficient to know what I know and that what I know may not always be true I try to be present and accountable for all I do and leave ndone I gave birth to one child a son but I have thousands of daughters You are Black and White Jewish and Muslim Asian Spanish speaking Native American and Aleut You are fat and thin and pretty and plain gay and straight educated and nlettered and I am speaking to you Here is my offering to you So speaks Maya Angelou in the Preface to Letter to My Daughter her third book of essays The book is a slim volume containing twenty eight short pieces which are titled by theme Examples are Philanthropy Vulgarity and VIOLENCE WHICH ARE FULL OF NUGGETS OF WISDOM COUCHED which are full of nuggets of wisdom couched examples from her own experience There are personal memories too such as Mother s Long View Surviving In the Valley of Humility or Mt Zion There are even specific anecdotes about the friends and people she knows such as Bob and Decca Fannie Lou Hamer and Celia Cruz In these cases it is clear that she feels she has learned a great deal from her friendships with these people and wishes to impart these insights she has gained By relating an anecdote from her past she gets our full attention Sometimes it is even something painfully embarrassing where she rather wishes it had not happened In each case she seems to hold nothing back There is a truth which she has learned as a result and she wishes to share it with s her readers Let s tell the tr. Her lessons in compassion and fortitude how she was brought p by her indomitable grandmother in segregated Arkansas taken in at thirteen by her worldly and less religious mother and grew to be an awkward six foot tall teenager whose first experience of loveless sex paradoxically left her with her greatest gift a sonWhether she is recalling such lost friends as Coretta Scott King and Ossie Davis extolling honesty decrying vulgarity explaining why becoming a Christian is a “lifelong endeavor” or simply singing the praises of a meal of red rice?. Uth to people When people ask How are you have the nerve sometimes to answer truthfully You must know however that people will start avoiding you because they too have knees that pain them and heads that hurt and they don t want to know about yours But think of it this way If people avoid you you will have time to meditate and do fine research on a cure for whatever truly afflicts you We feel as we read this that Maya Angelou is wise in a truly ancient sense In earlier times many cultures respected the elders in a tribe for their experience and the younger people looked to them when making their own life decisions Largely we have lost this ability this automatic sense of respect Too often the voices of the elders are lost But Maya Angelou takes hold of this power again She is both commanding and humble She is both searingly honest about herself and brutally matter of fact in her advice Never whine Whining lets a brute know that a victim is in the neighborhood This slight volume from 2008 became a bestseller many people viewing it as an inspirational book The idea was initially sparked off in the author s mind when she was going through some old boxes of notes and papers full of ideas for future books and poems From twenty years worth of notes written to her friend Oprah Winfrey Maya Angelou sifted ones which she felt deserved a wider audience as the truths in them were so niversal They should be shared I am convinced that most people do not grow Tabitha in the Moonlight up We marry and dare to have children and call that growingp I think what we do is mostly grow old We carry accumulation of years in our bodies and on our faces but generally our real selves the children inside are innocent and shy as magnolias The book can be read straight through or taken as an essay a day Essay is perhaps rather a grand term for what is often a personal anecdote with a bit of advice thrown in but then the book does defy categorisation being part memoir part poetry and part a sort of guidebook It is a book of advice on how to live well and how to live a life with meaning It navigates the fine line between homespun philosophy and inspirational religiosity ite well Maya Angelou has a very strong faith Her skilled writing her honest compassion and her intriguing and many personal anecdotes means that this is an appealing read for all Yes she identifies and speaks strongly with a Black female voice but this can be read with empathy and with significant meaning by everyone All great artists draw from the same resource the human heart which tells s all that we are alike than we are A Time to Heal unalike I do have oneibble and this may be with the publishers The volume is slight 162 pages in large print Of these 28 are completely blank Each essay is separated not only by the rest of the page plus perhaps the reverse being left blank but in addition there is a whole extra page in between too Since some of the pieces are only a couple of pages long in total anyway this makes the reader feel the page turn is far too The Far Far Better Thing uick It is distracting Surely a slim volume is exactly that Some volumes of poetry are very slight yet we don t feel cheated by the small page count But this feels like an attempt to bolster itp If the publisher really felt it needed bulk then perhaps it could have been attempt to bolster it p If the publisher really felt it needed bulk then perhaps it could have been with an earlier book or a selection of poems For this reason it remains at a three star read for me although it could well be touching four if essays had been included or its presentation had been honestAlthough this book came towards the end of her life with just one part of her autobiography making seven in total and one book of poetry afterwards I would recommend it as an introduction to Maya Angelou s writing for anyone who has never read any It is a feel good book not as devastating as the first part of her autobiography nor as complex as some of her poetry Of course much of her work has this same beautiful conversational tone The essays or chapters seem to follow her autobiographies at least at first It is like a reprise of some of her life events covered in those plus new ones She ses them to illustrate her advice for life and to inspire her readers In a sense she seems to be writing a commentary on her autobiographies This book is a very easy straightforward yet worthwhile read Here is my favourite The Truth About Jane Doe uotation You may not control all the events that happen to you but you can decide not to be reduced by them Try to be a rainbow in someone s cloud Do not complain Make every effort to change things you do not like If you cannot make a change change the way you have been thinking You might find a new solution Wisdom imparted garnered from a lifetime of pain and joy essays written to the daughters of the world she had none of her own Simply beautiful Try to be a rainbow in someone s cloud There is a lot of wisdom in this little book Maya Angelou givess live lessons of her own to help guide Mediterranean Men Bundle us and makes nderstand why life is sometimes cruel She also added some beautiful poetry that gives this
