QUOTE: Wangari Maathai On Making A Difference In The World


Words of wisdom from the late Nobel Peace Prize winning Professor Wangari Maathai.

“I kept stumbling and falling and stumbling and falling as I searched for the good. ‘Why?’ I asked myself. Now I believe that I was on the right path all along, particularly with the Green Belt Movement, but then others told me that I shouldn’t have a career, that I shouldn’t raise my voice, that women are supposed to have a master. That I needed to be someone else.

Finally I was able to see that if I had a contribution I wanted to make, I must do it, despite what others said. That I was OK the way I was. That it was all right to be strong.” ––Wangari Maathai

This quote spoke to me. Does it speak to you? Do you face opposition when you want to make positive changes?
