Wangari Maathai

“We’re constantly being bombarded by problems that we face and sometimes we can get completely overwhelmed. [But] we should always feel like a hummingbird. I may feel insignificant, but I don’t want to be like the other animals watching the planet go down the drain. I’ll be a hummingbird, I’ll do the best I can.”

Wangari Muta Maathai was a Kenyan environmental and political activist (1 April 1940 – 25 September 2011).
