Mottainai

Mottainai is a Japanese word meaning, roughly, "what a waste!" It's oftened used as an exclamation. Buddhist monks often use the expression to teach the importance of respecting what you have, whether it's something simple or sacred.

Maathai said, "we should all use limited resources effectively and share them fairly if we are to avert wars arising from disputes over natural resources."
