"I know I stuffed up and I know your peacekeeper probably treated you like gold and I’ve treated you like crap, but I want you to know that I remember the conversations we had in Year Twelve, when you told me you wanted to do a cultural studies degree because you believed in trade, not aid, and you believed that the only way was to ask the questions and listen to the needs of the people and I remember thinking that exact moment, I want to change the world with her… That’s a pretty powerful gift you have there, Ms Finke. To make the laziest guy around want to change the world with you."
