#MARY: beloved by her students and my single most important influence. A brilliant writer and dazzlingly articulate. Her advice and observations have determined to a large extent how I’ve lived my adult life and given me so much to pass onto others, a classic example of the teacher who saw more in me than I ever saw in myself, and is the only person I know that can deliver a compliment so spellbinding it compels the recipient to instantly raise their standards and live up to it. Only today did we have a delightful and meandering conversation packed with childish delight and authoritative insight from her. The absolute GOAT: Greatest Of All Time. #teacher #mentor #friend
