Wangari Maathai

Wangari Maathai

a Kenyan environmental and political activist.
Every one of us can make a contribution. And quite often we are looking for the big things and forget that, wherever we are, we can make a contribution. Sometimes I tell myself, I may only be planting a tree here, but just imagine what's happening if there are billions of people out there doing something. Just imagine the power of what we can do.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It would be good for us Africans to accept ourselves as we are and recapture some of the positive aspects of our culture.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All of us have a God in us, and that God is the spirit that unites all life, everything that is on this planet. It must be this voice that is telling me to do something, and I am sure it's the same voice that is speaking to everybody on this planet - at least everybody who seems to be concerned about the fate of the world, the fate of this planet.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Human rights are not things that are put on the table for people to enjoy. These are things you fight for and then you protect.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You have to know yourself, and that once you know yourself, then you cannot be bound by - because sometimes we are bound by other people's thoughts, because we are not sure about ourselves. But once you know yourself... I guess it is really an expression of the biblical statements that the truth will make you free! When you know, then you are free, your mind is free.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
