Letter To My Daughter
Letter To My Daughter | Maya Angelou
Dedicated to the daughter she never had but sees all around her, Letter to my Daughter reveals Maya Angelou's path to living well and living a life with meaning. Told in her own inimitable style, this book transcends genres and categories: it's part guidebook, part memoir, part poetry - and pure delight. Here in short essays are glimpses of the tumultuous life that led Angelou to an exalted place in American letters and taught her lessons about compassion and fortitude. Whether she is recalling lost friends, extolling honesty or simply singing the praises of a meal of red rice, Maya Angelou writes from the heart to millions of women. Like the rest of her remarkable work, Letter to My Daughter entertains and teaches. It is a book to cherish, savour, reread and share.

Mehso-so

Unpopular opinion that I did not like this as much as I thought I would. It consists of a series of advice written like letters applicable to the reader: life advice, traveling, religion, love and respect, courage, and relationships. It was a quick read ad I enjoyed snippets from her life, her experiences, her relationships with her mother, grandmother, and son. This was on my TBR for a long time and was glad that I bought a copy. #NFNov

#SpringIntoReading Day 13: These are only some of the #YellowSpines that I grabbed off my shelves - all of them (except for Wuthering Heights) I have not read yet. This is why I always get a thrill looking at my bookshelves - the promise of so many great reads waiting for me to get to them.

Although I didn‘t love the writing style I did enjoy this book. It has made me want to read more of Maya Angelou‘s life story.
My favourite line is ‘I learned that a friend may be waiting behind a stranger‘s face.‘ 💛

JennyM That quote has just given me chills. Sounds beautiful- thanks for sharing 13mo

I listened to Maya Angelou read this audiobook while working today, and it was beautiful.Truthful, timeless and so poignant to women of all ages. I've always enjoyed her writing, but there were parts in this that really hit home. 💚

I can‘t write unbiased reviews about anything Maya Angelou has ever written, because I just love her so much. I would recommend to everyone who‘s able to listen to her audiobooks read by her. Although she‘s gone from our world, we wisdom and her voice still remain. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Dr. Angelou may be the most wise and sensible woman to ever live. Her words always inspire and put me in awe.

If you need calmness and stillness in your life, this is the book I recommend. Any Maya Angelou will do, but I picked this one in particular because of the incredible honesty she conveys in here. Maya talks about the mistakes she‘s made in her past, the lessons she was forced to learn from and live with, and basically reassure you as the reader that everything is okay. We‘re women, shit happens, and we‘ll be fine. ❤️ #survivingdecember

#TBRtemptation post 3! Maya Angelou dedicates this book to the daughter she never had but sees all around her. It's about living well and with meaning. It's a memoir, a guidebook, poetry. In short essays, she reveals moments in her tumultuous life which led her to her place among America's top authorial echelon and how to build up compassion and fortitude. She recalls family, friends, and faith. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

I am reading 3 other books at the moment, but I picked this up on a whim after it came through the book drop at work. I started it today and it's a quick read of vignettes relating to Angelou's life. Only 165 pages long and there are blank pages between each vignette. Fully expect to finish this tomorrow.

I haven't read Maya Angelou before but I was wanting to for a long time, and I finally had the chance. Although her writing style didn't attract me, her wisdom and the advice she offers in her short essays, based on her own personal experiences, is valuable and thought provoking. For me it was a quick read offering a lot of food for thought and interesting memories and experiences of Angelou. #mayaangelou #lettertomydaughter

Stayed an extra 15 min on the elliptical just to finish this. 😁 Angelou is such an inspiration and gives much food for thought in these essays.

I am convinced that most people do not grow up...We marry and dare to have children and call that growing up. 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 ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.
