maya angelou has recently published a cooking book. and it is actually with cooking recipes from her. but what i'm posting about is that she was interviewed by npr and she was quoted saying this:
"You need the best ingredients when you're going to cook," she says. "The writer has to take some nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, et cetera, and boil them up in such a way that you can throw them against the wall and they'll bounce."
i thought this was a great quote, that i just had to share. you can read the whole article about maya angelou's cook book on npr's website.
