Open QuoteRichard Leakey was fantastic. The hall was filled (650), and all eyes and ears were on him. What a brilliant man. His talk was eloquent, funny, insightful, inspirational. He touched so many bases, but concluded with the theme of compassion as being a characteristic, a most important characteristic, of human beings. Everyone loved him.Close Quote
