Quotes on Growth: Maya Angelou

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” Maya Angelou

Doug Hawxhurst Maya Angelou

There’s almost nothing that Maya Angelou didn’t do. She was the first woman to be a train conductor, she was a feisty civil rights leader, and one of America’s most beloved authors. Much of her activism had to do with inspiring action and participation from all who cared about racial justice, whether they were personally oppressed or not. At once, Angelou is encouraging people to do the best they can, but also to reevaluate what it means to do the best that you can as your knowledge, experience, and capabilities change.
