Here are some inspirational quotes from Thunberg about climate change, making a difference and standing up to those who harass her:
On impact: "I have learned you are never too small to make a difference."
On intention: "The moment we decide to fulfill something, we can do anything."
On harassment: "When haters go after your looks and differences, it means they have nowhere left to go. And then you know you're winning!"
On change: "Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming whether you like it or not."
On not giving up: “You must take action. You must do the impossible. Because giving up is never an option.”
On purpose: “I’m not that special. I can’t convince everyone. I’m just going to do what I want to do and what will have the most impact.”
On changing the rules: "We can’t save the world by playing by the rules, because the rules have to be changed. Everything needs to change – and it has to start today."
On unity: "Together and united, we are unstoppable."
On telling the truth: "I often talk to people who say, ‘No, we have to be hopeful and to inspire each other, and we can’t tell [people] too many negative things’ . . . But, no — we have to tell it like it is. Because if there are no positive things to tell, then what should we do, should we spread false hope? We can’t do that, we have to tell the truth."
