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.
