“Perelman’s aversion to public spectacle and to riches is mystifying to many. I have not talked to him about it and I can certainly not speak for him, but I want to say I have complete empathy and admiration for his inner strength and clarity, to be able to know and hold true to himself.

Perhaps we should also pause to reflect on ourselves and learn from Perelman’s attitude toward life.”
