Jane Goodall, coined the original Earth Mother, quoted below, from June 2015 Readers Digest article:

"Trees are living beings. And they have their own personalities... There are the young, eager saplings, all striving with each other... If you put your cheek against one of those, you almost sense the sap rising and the energy. " Source: Jane Goodall, NPR

Another about the Chimps, of course, taken from a great web site called achievement.org and quoted in Readers Digest:

"The first time I saw adult chimpanzees in these five-by- five- foot cages... Tears began to trickle down under my mask, and [JoJo, a chimp] just reached out this gentle finger and wiped them away... and then the veterinarian came. He knelt down beside me and put his arm around me. He said, "I have to face this every day. "

I love this one best. The mom in me would have done the same. Also by Jane Goodall published on achievement.org and quoted from Readers Digest.

"I went to an empty henhouse [when I was four and a half], hid in the straw at the back, and waited, and the family had no idea where I was... My mother sees this excited little girl rushing toward the house all covered in straw. Instead if getting mad at me, which would've killed the excitement, she saw my shining eyes and sat down to hear this wonderful story of how a hen lays an egg. "
