Maya Angelou calls the individuals that help influence us and shape our lives "rainbows"... very similar to the stars in these constellations.
"I'm so amazed, and it is so true, that each of us has a rainbow - some have four or five. This is what men and women who are convinced that they are in unity with themselves and the God that made us are. This is who we are when we are at our best - we are RAINBOWS."
Maya Angelou quoted in "Maya Angelou's Rainbows" by Lori Rohlk, Editor, Women's Web Magazine. July 1996.
