„I don't really know why I care so much. I just have something inside me that tells me that there is a problem, and I have got to do something about it. I think that is what I would call the God in me.
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.“

— Wangari Maathai, As quoted in the article [http://www.context.org/ICLIB/IC28/Sears.htm Wangari Maathai:"You Strike The Woman ..."] by Priscilla Sears; published in the quarterly In Context #28 (Spring 1991)

„I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.“

— Jack London American author, journalist, and social activist 1876 - 1916
Context: I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time. The Bulletin, San Francisco, California, December 2, 1916, part 2, p. 1. Also included in Jack London’s Tales of Adventure, ed. Irving Shepard, Introduction, p. vii (1956)
