Highly esteemed Secretary-General,

…The United Nations is so fortunate to have you as its world-pilot as it enters the New Millennium. Your own vast inner depths, your solitude-loving life, the quietness and gentleness that emanate from you, your sincerity and humility all bespeak a man whose words and actions are based on a deep and fulfilling inner life of peace and harmony. May you continue to serve the United Nations for many long years to come so that this World-Body, which is humanity's cherished dream, may carry the message of peace throughout the length and breadth of the world.
