“Well, it is a jolly tough way to live, but it’s worthwhile. Because everywhere I go, there are shining eyes. There are children from our Roots and Shoots program who are all so excited to meet “Dr. Jane” and tell me what they’ve been doing to make the world a better place.”
There was a book I read when I was younger by Jane Goodall called My Life with the Chimpanzees; I must have taken it out of the library 50 times. It was one of the most fascinating and wonderful ways to spend a life I had ever heard of. I still admire Goodall’s work and hope to be so lucky as to find such a worthwhile cause to dedicate my life’s work to.
