Jane Goodall is a British primatologist, anthropoligist, and UN Messenger of Peace. Considered to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees, Goodall is the founder of Jane Goodall Institute. She has worked extensively on conservatism and animal welfare, acquiring several notable awards during his years of study. Here is a look at some of the most notable Jane Goodall quotes.
“Change happens by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you don’t believe is right.”
“Empathy is really important.. Only when our clever brain and our human heart work together in harmony can we achieve our full potential.”
“Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.”
“I think I’d like to be remembered as someone who really helped people to have a little humility and realize that we are part of the animal kingdom not separated from it.”
“I think the best evenings are when we have messages, things that make us think, but we can also laugh and enjoy each other’s company.”
“If we kill off the wild, then we are killing a part of our souls.”
“Lasting change is a series of compromises. And compromise is all right, as long your values don’t change.”
“Let us develop respect for all living things. Let us try to replace violence and intolerance with understanding and compassion. And love.”
“My mission is to create a world where we can live in harmony with nature.”
“Only if we understand, can we care. Only if we care, we will help. Only if we help, we shall be saved.”
“The greatest danger to our future is apathy.”
“The least I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves.”
“To me, cruelty is the worst of human sins. Once we accept that a living creature has feelings and suffers pain, then by knowingly and deliberately inflicting suffering on that creature, we are guilty, whether it be human or animal.”
“We are unique. Chimpanzees are unique. Dogs are unique. But we humans are just not as different as we used to think.”
“We have the choice to use the gift of our life to make the world a better place–or not to bother.”
“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
“You aren’t going to save the world on your own. But you might inspire a generation of kids to save it for all of us. You would be amazed at what inspired children can do.”
“Your life matters. You can’t live through a day without making an impact on the world. And what’s most important is to think about the impact of your actions on the world around you.”
