"I am immensely proud of you. Of all the people I have met - and of all the students I have had the privilege to befriend - you have been the bravest in pursuit of your ideas and ideals, both of which are admirable. 18 years ago you talked of leaving a legacy; that was a fine ambition, and you have left a legacy that anyone would be proud of. The young people you have inspired and the lives you have touched are all monument to you. I have worked for almost twice your lifetime, yet have not done as much."
