Know Better Do Better

  • "Then When You Know Better, Do Better"

    I adore Maya Angelou. Her books moved me deeply as a young woman and they still line my bookshelves today. Her quote, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better," has stuck with me for a long time.

    Yet her quote has been altered over time and even paraphrased by Oprah Winfrey to, "When you know better, you do better." But that's not really what she said. The "then" is really important. Removing it, or ignoring it, unintentionally implies that when we know better we will choose to do better. But, not always. Right?
