Sir Patrick states,
“During his entire career, he has been fighting to make universal values a practical reality for as many people as possible. Humanity is stronger than yesterday, but peace and universal values are not a permanent state of being. Contrary to that belief, I have been aware during my entire life that peace and universal values are an objective toward which we should strive continually. We can only improve our lives and everyone’s lives through unremitting effort”.
