Welcome to Words mean more than what is set down on paper

Welcome to the fanlistings.org approved fanlisting for Maya Angelou. Maya Angelou is a poet, writer, actress, memoirist, and a very important part of the Civil Rights movment. Her best known book is probably I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, which was an autobiography of the early years of her life. But she's known for much more than just that book. She is also known as Dr. Angelou, as she's received over 30 honorary degrees from Universities all over the country. She has also served on two Presidential committees. In 2002, she lent her name and writings to a series of greeting cards from Hallmark. Dr. Angelou once said that "Some critics will write 'Maya Angelou is a natural writer'", and anyone who has ever read her writing's can certainly agree with that. But as always, Dr. Angelou wasn't tooting her own horn when she said that. I first fell in love with her writing when I read I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings for the first time over fifteen years ago. And the years have done nothing but make me respect her even more, not only for her writing, but for the kind of person she truly is. There are few people in this world that you can say you don't know, but respect. For me, Dr. Angelou is one of those few people. The title of this listing comes from a quote of hers. Here is the entire quote, "Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.".
