We try to preserve life, even when we know it has no chance of enduring its body. We feed it, keep it comfortable, bathe it, medicate it, caress it, even sing to it. We tend to these basic functions not because we are brave or selfless but because, like breath, it is the most fundamental act of our species: to sustain the body until time leaves it behind.

I wish you endless dreams and the furious desire to make some of them come true.

I wish you to love what you need to love and forget what you need to forget.

I wish you passions, I wish you silences. I wish you bird songs on waking up and children's laughter.

I wish you to respect the differences of others, because the merit and value of each one is often to be discovered. I wish you to resist the bogging down, the indifference and the negative virtues of our times.

Finally, I wish you never to give up research, adventure, life, love, because life is a magnificent adventure and no reasonable person should give it up without fighting a hard battle.

Above all, I wish you to be you, proud and happy, because happiness is our true destiny.
