Hallmark bought
Maya Angelou.

The Maya Angelou Life Mosaic Collection, a new line now available in Hallmark stores across the country, includes more than 100 greeting cards and a variety of other items- pillows, journals, mugs-featuring writings from the 73-year-old author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

Shoppers can buy the "Thankful Vase" decorated with the following: "Be present in all things and thankful in all things." Only $24.99 on Hallmark.com.

For $19.95 shoppers can buy two ceramic mugs, one with Angelou's adage: "Nobody can ever take a friend's place - nobody."

Angelou, who delivered a poem at Bill Clinton's 1993 Presidential Inauguration, told USA Today that she wants her work to be in people's hands. "All people's hands, people who would never buy a book."
