Cloud Quotations

Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud. - Maya Angelou
Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud.
Maya Angelou

The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else's cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God - if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That's what I think.
Maya Angelou

There's a bright spot in every dark cloud.
Bruce Beresford

Every cloud has its silver lining but it is sometimes a little difficult to get it to the mint.
Don Marquis

A cloud is made of billows upon billows upon billows that look like clouds. As you come closer to a cloud you don't get something smooth, but irregularities at a smaller scale.
Benoit Mandelbrot
